This Hypercar Center® report draws on years of research to introduce both technical and policy-oriented readers to Hypercar® vehicles, how they would differ from today's cars, how they would be made, how they could affect both automaking and society, and what issues of business and public policy these effects may raise. This is the report that helped spur billions worth of investment by major auto manufacturers into Hypercar® technology. It was previously sold for thousands of dollars but is now available at an affordable price. It is, admittedly, not light reading. In fact, it has been called "an amazingly complex and sophisticated piece of analysis" by a prominent reviewer. The report details Hypercar® vehicles potential effects on industrial structure, macroeconomic issues such as jobs and competitiveness, recycling, lifecycle flows of materials and energy, occupational and public health and safety, automaking strategy and culture, climatic change, alternative fuels and power, oil and national security, and transport policy.
