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 vehicles.
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.
