The aXcessaustralia hybrid electric project 2000-05-0355
The first aXcessaustralia project was a conventionally powered
car that displayed Australian innovation. The project demonstrated
the practical, stylish, low-cost components that can be supplied by
the Australian automotive components industry.
Austalia, with one hundred years of automotive history, is one
of very few countries that can style, design, engineer and
construct complete cars, even though the domestic market is only
around 700,000 vehicles.
The new project provides the opportunity to show recent
technology developments and build an exciting car. It provides
useful information to the global automotive community that will
help prepare the path towards affordable, less-polluting
The project demonstrates the emerging technologies and
reinforces Australian industry''s position in the changing
global market. The paper provides an overview of how this
innovative approach was undertaken.
