of vehicular motion, and proceeds with a relatively good overview of the design considerations for different types
of electric and hybrid vehicles. I am a practicing electrical engineer, and I found the book to be informative
and easy to follow. It contains a moderate amount of technical content but is not overly mathematical to the
point of being inaccessible to most readers. I would recommend this as a good first introductory text to the field.
