Abstract

In this study, the authors concluded that a super energy-efficient vehicle (SEEV) with fuel economy more than 100 km/liter could be possible with the present technology level. The new environmentally compatible vehicle was designed to mitigate urban warming (heat island), air pollution and CO2 emissions in the urban area. The authors evaluated optimal specifications of the new concept energy-efficient electric vehicle (EV) powered by fuel cell or battery equipped with flywheel and photovoltaic (PV) cell and also reported the results of the running simulations for the proposed vehicle. The proposed SEEV will be very promising to mitigate urban and global warming, and to conserve fossil f
