Behind the scenes of Electric and Hybrid Vehicles

Vehicle development is a very complex process at multiple levels and consists of several stages: from determining and evaluating markets to designing a simple wheel or seat. There is a great need to manage and somehow connect, all of these steps logically. For example, General Motors uses a the top-down approach to connect these levels. This approach starts with a global view point, enphasising on the needs from customers and companies regarding the vehicle, and the vehicle manufacturer itself.
