Abstract:

Through the use of a fuel cell-battery hybrid power source for vehicular propulsion all of the battery problems can be overcome. This power source allows an electric vehicle to have 1 full range capability, 2 excellent acceleration characteristics, and 3 use of conventional hydrocarbon fuels. To achieve the required performance depends upon the successful development of a 150 watt hour per pound molten electrolyte battery and a 20-35 pound per kilowatt hydrocarbon-air fuel cell. Research progress indicates that these goals should be achieved in operational hardware within the next five to ten years. Author
