In this paper, a bajaj three wheeler was first analyzed and designed for similar vehicle requirements. Placement of vehicle components have been calculated and proposed. An automatic hybrid controller for the vehicle power management is also proposed. The preliminary design is simulated as a series hybrid fuel cell Li-ion battery vehicle model in PSAT software. Further a brief economic and environmental analysis has been done for the proposed vehicle by calculating the pay back period and using the GREET software respectively. This design can be implemented in the longer run on general vehicles; thus creating independence from fossil fuels.
