THE DEVELOPMENT OF ELECTRIC VEHICLES IN JAPAN

This report is concerned with the first phase of a five-year $7000000 programme which was instituted in February 1971 and sponsored by the science and technology agency of the Japanese Ministry of International Trade and Industry. Details are presented of five types of experimental electric vehicles, together with such components as newly developed types of batteries. The vehicles constructed were a light-weight passenger car and a compact passenger car, one light-weight and one compact truck and a 70-passenger bus. Comparisons of target specifications and actual results are tabulated, and data given on the development of seven types of batteries, and target performances for a second series of vehicles. /TRRL/
