Abstract

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) through its Vehicle Technologies Office (VTO), often in close partnership with industry, has supported the development/deployment of cleaner, more efficient automotive technologies with electric drive systems. This paper provides an overview of efforts to promote market adoption of hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) and electric vehicles (EVs) in the U.S. and the associated VTO R&D and Deployment initiatives for accelerating this adoption. It also highlights the many significant research breakthroughs resulting from R&D in the hybrid vehicle systems areas of research (with particular emphasis on advanced electric drive technologies) funded directly by or in collaboration with VTO.
