History of the Electric Automobile: Hybrid Electric Vehicles book focuses on electric vehicles that harness the potential of electricity when combined with another energy source--hybrid electric vehicles (HEV). The book is divided into four segments. A brief introduction reviews how research built the foundation for the first electrical vehicle in 1881. The second session discusses ways to overcome limited range. A third section looks at the growing interest in racing battery-carrying, solar-cell-equipped electric vehicles. Finally, a section of appendixes describes the Hughes inductive charging system.
