Design and Fabrication of Electric and hybrid vehicle

In the most simplest way we can explain hybrid as a mixture of two different products or species to create a new product or sepecies having qualities of both. In this case too, hybrid vehicles referes too a machine which works on the combination of two technologies, one is the commonly used internal combustion engine and other is the electric propulsion system.

These vehicles can be made using three different technologies or combinations:

1) Diesel Engine with Electrical Energy Powered Engine

2) Gasoline with Flying Wheel and

3) Fuel Cell and Battery

The purpose of these vehicles is to improve the fuel mileage and reduce the quantity of green house emissions from their engines. Though You can learn the techniques that are used to build these engines in the links given below but I would like to bring your attention to some of the most important factors regarding this project. 

To create a really effective and working hybrid machine, we need a vehicle which weighs less in comparison to tradional ones. This can be achieved in two ways; either we reduce the size of the vehicle or we start using a material which gives same strenght in lesser weight. In my opinion we should start working on both. Moreover, we can also look for other sources of energy to provide some power to this car. For example we can use solar powered wipers in these cars or wind powered battery charger. I mean, things which can contribute to use lesser fuel and more green energies. You need to find all the possiblities on this topic because lot has already being done and lot needs to be done with hybrid vehicles.

The presence of the electric power train is intended to achieve either better fuel economy than a conventional vehicle, or better performance.
