From 1 to 3 October 2008 the Formula Electric and Hybrid Italy took place in the Safety Testing Center of Fiat Group Automobiles in Orbassano (TO), Italy. This fourth edition of Formula EHI, an international competitive demonstration of research outcomes from university student teams, has brought to the attention of the public and of the industry new technologies and innovative applications in the area of the systems addressing the ecological mobility. Teams from five European countries were the protagonists of the event. Several projects, components, systems and concept have been presented, related to advanced technologies for battery electric, hybrid and fuel cell vehicles. New technology hybrid, fuel cell and electric vehicles took part to the dynamic test on track for the evaluation of energy efficiency performance and dynamic behaviour. The 2008 event was a further step of the editions of Formula TECH held in the previous years and offered a benchmarking overview of the progress of the technology in the field of electrically propelled vehicles.
