Basically, the main objective of this project is to design and construct an aerodynamic hybrid electric vehicle and also minimizing the overall vehicle weight and body part by usingother alternatives sources instead of steel. The reason of concentrating on aerodynamic is due to the Coefficient of Drag (Co) that exerts on the vehicle body and hence by reducing the force will increase the car performance. Moreover, the conventional car body is not practical to be used for hybrid electric vehicle. Thus, lightweight material has to replace the conventional usage of steel as car external body in order to maintainand increasethe performance while reducing the fuel consumption. The study involves on the existing car as the point of references by upgrading or changing the body part, which is not applicable for hybrid electric vehicle. In fact, feasibility study has to be done to understand the concept. The process flows start from the design, testingand until the construction of the prototype car as the practical solution.
