A Lesson in the Physics of Hybrid Electric Vehicles

As a general principle, the electric motor is used for. 5 starting and low vehicle speeds, and the gasoline engine provides the power for steady-state operation. This configuration presents the designer with an even greater number of design options than the series configuration. Control and control strategy are thus very important. Control systems function primarily to match the drivetrain with the driving …

How will electric vehicle transition impact EU jobs?

3. Higher general consumer spending because of the substantially lower running costs of electric cars over their lifetime that more than offset their higher purchase price. Oil production and distribution has very low employment intensity of just 4 jobs per million euros value added compared to 24 in the economy as a whole. Therefore any
