Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology International - Shape of Things to Come

There is a century of design evolution behind the shape of modern cars- vehicles that have been built around the packaging of the powertrain and the need for a passenger cabin that seats X number of adults in comfort, while providing a driver with an acceptable field of vision. Aerodynamics has always been a part of the former requirement, providing cooling to the powertrain and latterly brining performance benefits (in most cases drag reduction and thereby improved fuel economy), evolving the aesthetic and function layout into the form seen today.
