This paper discusses some of the objectives, results, and implications of GE's electric vehicle and component systems developments to date. The experimental vehicle is covered in detail. The vehicle's styling, construction, materials, power system, operating costs, and performance are discussed with some alternatives and attendant economic considerations. The paper also presents a brief discussion of the power system requirements, performance, and economics of several potential electric vehicles as well as a critique of the potential power sources presently announced as having promise for electric vehicle propulsion.
The paper includes pictures, tables, and graphs describing the experimental vehicle and illustrating the points discussed relative to other potential vehicles, power systems, batteries, and fuel cells.
