After 20 years of the rapid development of electric vehicles (EV), the basic technology of EV in terms of motor, drive, batteries, chargers, and vehicle control are well developed, and numerous products have been found in the market. Advanced electric vehicle techniques require future technologies. High-energy storage of batteries or other energy storage devices should be examined. Research should not only develop new devices in fuel cells, super-capacitors, and flow batteries, it also develop associated management, cell balancing, and bi-directional charging or refuel systems or mechanisms for EV. The new, high-torque motor is in high demand. High power density in terms of motor and drive, braking, a new cooling method, energy storage safety, and vehicle security are urgently needed. The vehicle control unit, and communication among vehicles and travel control, are the new requirements for smart cities and planning. Vehicles’ self-diagnosis and autonomous driving systems are also needed for sustainable vehicle development. Advanced vehicle parts and components are being built, including active suspension, new power train, parts-and-body integration, and braking systems, which are new interests for all EV, and the elimination of the hydraulic subsystem. The future electric vehicle market is large; research is just beginning, and we expect new research to be reported in this Special Issue.

Manuscript Submission Information
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. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short 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 thoroughly refereed through a single-blind 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 semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
