Hybrid-electric vehicles (HEVs) constitute an interesting solution for the reduction of fuel consumption and pollutant emissions with respect to conventional vehicles, while maintaining comparable performances and ranges. They can also be realized with limited modifications to existing manufacturing processes; moreover, they can normally operate not only in hybrid mode, but also in purely electric mode, this way reaching the condition of zero emissions.
The basis of the growth of hybrid technology is electric storage, and electrochemical batteries, and even supercapacitors, are researched and developed in a variety of chemistries and configurations to better meet the continuously changing technical and economical requirements for battery-powered electric vehicles (EVs), hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), but, to actually achieve the potential advantages of HEVs the powertrain structure and the energy management logic have to be carefully selected and matched.
The special issue covers current trends and future developments of HEV technology, including both mechanical as well as electrical engineering aspects.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Energies is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.
