Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

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.
