Abstract:

Through the use of a fuel cell-battery hybrid power source all of the so-called vehicle battery problems can be overcome. This power source allows an electric vehicle to have 1 Full range capability. 2 Excellent acceleration characteristics. 3 Very fast energy refuel. To achieve the performance outlined for the vehicle, requires the successful development of a 150 watt hour per pound molten electrolyte battery and a 20-35 lbsKW hydrocarbon fuel cell. Research progress indicates that these goals should be achieved in operational hardware within the next five to ten years. Author
