EVALUATION OF VARIOUS DRIVE SYSTEMS FOR ROAD VEHICLES

DIE BEWERTUNG VERSCHIEDENER ANTRIEBSSYSTEME FUER STRASSENFAHRZEUGE

An evaluation of energy sources and their availability, capacity, economy and environmental attractiveness has established, that the otto-engine is an advantageous drive mechanism for cars. This evaluation is also valid for the forseeable future. The diesel engine is of considerable interest for use in cars, particularly for high annual mileages. It is the most suitable drive for commercial vehicles and will remain so for the foreseeable future. The electric drive for road vehicles is, at the present stage of battery technology, only of limited application. /TRRL/
