Among various types of electric vehicles, hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs)—or as they are commonly dubbed “hybrid vehicles”—offer the distinct advantages of energy diversification, versatile operation, long driving range and high sustainability.
This Special Issue entitled “Advances in Hybrid Vehicles” invites articles that address state-of-the-art technologies and new developments for HEVs, including but not limited to hybrid powertrains, hybrid energy sources, energy management systems, energy refueling systems, regenerative braking systems and system integration. Articles which deal with the latest hot topics for HEVs are particularly encouraged, such as advanced motor drives, advanced power electronics, integrated-starter-generators, electric variable transmission systems, vehicle-to-grid technology, on-board energy harvesting and wireless charging technology. Also, articles which discuss the relationships between the use of HEVs and the energy, environment and economy would be of particular interest.
