Basically the objectives of this project is to design and construct an aerodynamic hybrid electric vehicle and also minimizing the overall vehicle weight and body part by using other alternatives sources instead of steel. The reason of concentrating on aerodynamic is due to the Coefficient Drag (CD) 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 vehicle thus lightweight material has to be replaced in order to maintain and increase the performance while reducingthe 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 car. In fact feasibility study has to be done to understand the concept. The process flows is start from the design, testing and until the construction of the real car as the practical solution. The testing that may involve in this project will be the tuft testing and wind tunnel testing. Both testing are necessary to be done as it will determined the aerodynamic and wind flow that occur upon the surfaces.
