The second edition, written by John German, program director for the International Council for Clean Transportation, provides an overview of recent hybrid technology developments and takes a look at what lies ahead for gas- and diesel-electric vehicles.
On top of the technical details, German discusses why he believes sales of hybrids will soar after 2020, ultimately capturing 75 percent of the automotive market by about 2030. Now there's a number worth debating. Anyone interested in purchasing the second edition of Hybrid-Powered Vehicles should head over to the SAE's bookstore.
