HYBRID VEHICLE TECHNOLOGY CONSTRAINTS AND APPLICATION ASSESSMENT STUDY. VOLUME IV. SECTIONS 10, 11, AND APPENDIX
This four-volume report presents analyses and assessments of both heat engine/battery- and heat engine/flywheel-powered hybrid vehicles to determine if they could contribute to near-term (1980-1990) reductions in transportation energy consumption under several sets of operational conditions: urban driving, highway driving, and stop-start, low-speed delivery service conditions. This last of four volumes is concerned with the hybrid vehicle's energy consumption and exhaust emissions. Section 10 discusses factors such as vehicle weight, peak cruise speed, and regenerative braking. Section 11 details technological constraints to introduction of the hybrid vehicle and identifies applications that could benefit most from its energy conservation potential.
