The electric car: development and future of battery, hybrid and fuel-cell cars
Institution of Electrical Engineers, 2001 - Technology & Engineering - 198 pages
This book covers the development of electric cars -- from their early days to new hybrid models in production -- together with the very latest technological issues faced by automotive engineers working on electric cars, as well as the key business factors vital for the successful transfer of electric cars into the mass market. Considerable work has gone into electric car and battery development in the last ten years with the prospect of substantial improvements in range and performance in battery cars as well as in hybrids and those using fuel cells. This book comprehensively covers this important subject and will be of particular interest to engineers and managers working in the automotive and transport industries.

A review of battery electric vehicles, which also covers fuel cell and hybrid cars. By the time of this review (2008) it was already a little dated, with some predictions looking a little quaint. The style is a bit dry and much of it requires at least A-level physics. Don't bother unless you are happy about the distinction between (say) Watts and Watt-hours
