A Grand Design of Future Electric Vehicle with Fuel Economy More than 100 Km/Liter 1999-01-2711
In this study, the authors concluded that a super energy-efficient vehicle (SEEV) with fuel economy more than 100km/liter could be possible with the present technology level. The new environmentally-compatible vehicle was designed to mitigate urban warming, air pollution and CO2 emissions in the urban area. The authors evaluated optimal specifications of the new concept energy-efficient electric vehicle (EV) equipped with flywheel and photovoltaic (PV) cell and also reported the results of the running simulations for the proposed vehicle. The proposed SEEV will be very promising to mitigate urban and global warming, and toconserve fossil fuel consumption.
