Goal Development - Hybrid Vehicle
one step at a time
When planning for a hybrid electric gas system, it is important that the project goals are adequately defined. Below are a few questions to help frame the development.
Is the goal to develop a hybrid that will pay for itself with MPG optimization techniques?
Is the goal to increase the MPGs and noticeably increase performance?
How much of an increase are you looking for?
Are range goals based on a long commute or a few laps around a track?
How important is it to rebalance the vehicle with proper weight distributions including lowering the center of gravity?
After fully defining the project goals, carefully consider costs and safety issues prior to finalizing your project.
