Abstract : An extrapolation, based on extensive experience with battery and fuel cell power sources during various Army programs, is made into the future world of the electric car and speculates on the power sources most suited as the electrical energy source. The conclusion is that both the battery and the fuel cell have their place when combined uniquely in a hybrid configuration which by proper design can provide outstanding characteristics. (Author)
