Thoroughly updated to encompass the significant technological advances since the publication of the first edition, Electric and Hybrid Vehicles: Design Fundamentals, Second Edition presents the design fundamentals, component sizing, and systems interactions of alternative vehicles. This new edition of a widely praised, bestselling textbook maintains the comprehensive, systems-level perspective of electric and hybrid vehicles while covering the hybrid architectures and components of the vehicle in much greater detail. The author emphasizes technical details, mathematical relationships, and design guidelines throughout the text.
New to the Second Edition
As an advisor to the University of Akron’s team in the Challenge X: Crossover to Sustainable Mobility, Dr. Husain knows first-hand how to teach students both the fundamentals and cutting-edge technologies of the next generation of automotives. This text shows students how electrical and mechanical engineers must work together to complete an alternative vehicle system. It empowers them to carry on state-of-the-art research and development in automotive engineering in order to meet today’s needs of clean, efficient, and sustainable vehicles.
Dr. Iqbal Husain takes his new edition of Electric and Hybrid Vehicles: Design Fundamentals to the next level, adding substantial depth to the coverage of vehicle architectures and components while maintaining a comprehensive systems-level approach. The book presents a thorough and well-organized multidisciplinary perspective, excellent for undergraduate and beginning graduate-level courses, and as a resource for practicing engineers interested in the latest developments in electric and hybrid vehicles. The technical content, examples, and case studies are laced with the author’s significant hands-on design experience.

…it seems that the author has covered all materials related to hybrid vehicles. More specifically, various components used in an HEV are described. … This book is well written and is appropriate for adoption as a textbook for a senior undergraduate/graduate course. In fact, the solved problems and end-of-chapter problems make it a very good textbook. … it can also be used a reference book. … There are a few books on the subject of hybrid vehicles in the market today. However, I rank this book among the best on the subject matter. Based on the table of contents and the two chapters that I have reviewed, the book does an excellent job in defining the problem and analyzing all its components.

Praise for the First Edition:
…represents a systems-level perspective on electric and hybrid vehicles technical aspects, basic mathematical relationships and fundamental design guidelines. … The author has chosen to write a book on the basics of EHV, directed mainly to engineering students. …proceeds with remarkable consistence to detail this goal over the 10 chapters if the book … The book is concise and clear, its mathematics are kept to a necessary minimum, but fully representative of the scope and the content is well balanced in general. … a new and timely contribution to the field … warmly recommend it to academia…

Through a balanced blend of traditional and relatively new topics, Iqbal Husain’s Electric and Hybrid Vehicles: Design Fundamentals introduces students to the ‘big picture’ of EVs and HEVs. This book significantly exposes students to nearly every aspect of electric and hybrid vehicles without overemphasizing only one topic. The basic aspects of electric and hybrid vehicles are discussed well — from overall concepts to more detailed design — and reinforced through good examples, illustrations, and exercise problems. Dr. Husain’s well-paced coverage and an easy-to-follow writing style are key to students’ understanding and success. My students will have no problem reading this material regardless of his/her electrical or mechanical engineering background. Being a faculty member in a major university with a strong research EV and HEV program, I feel this book truly provides quite enough materials for my needs and will be a big hit with college students and faculty.

… a thorough and insightful introduction to the interdisciplinary topic of traction design for road vehicles. The necessary requirements of energy storage, conversion and processing are presented as the means to providing vehicular performance in a logical progression that students will find readily understandable and practicing engineers will appreciate as a useful reference source. Overall the practical importance of systems engineering and its control are made evident. Salient features are emphasized by worked examples with realistic parameters.
