I guess I'll cross that bridge when I come to it. There are many steps between now and when I need to decide on a hybrid drive type.

First, there is much motor, controller, and DC/DC converter experimentation.

Then I figure out how many batteries I can install, making allowances for the battery frames.

Then I can determine where the batteries will fit, make the battery boxes, get them installed and working.

After I can finally put a license on it, then I'll find out the range.

At that point I find out whether I need to go hybrid.
