Electric vehicles (EVs) are a promising technology for achieving a sustainable transport sector in the future, due to their very low to zero carbon emissions, low noise, high efficiency, and flexibility in grid operation and integration (vehicle-to-grid, V2G; vehicle-to-home, V2H; grid-to-vehicle, G2V). In recent years, full EVs (FEVs), plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) and fuel cell vehicles (FCVs) have gained a great deal of popularity thanks to advances in technology (components, hybrid energy systems, energy storage systems, power converters, control techniques, energy management systems and charging systems), which have made it possible to develop and market electric bicycles, motorcycles, cars, buses and tramways.
This Special Issue is focused on the recent advances in EVs, and includes, but is not limited, to the following topics:
- Optimized design of EVs
- Propulsion systems for EVs
- Hybrid energy systems for EVs
- Energy storage systems for EVs
- Charging stations/systems for EVs: wired charging systems, wireless power transfer systems
- Applications: bicycles, motorcycles, cars, buses, trains, tramways
- Operation of EVs in smart grids/smart homes: Vehicle-to-grid (V2G), vehicle-to-home (V2H), grid-to-vehicle (G2V)
- Integration of EVs in smart grids/smart homes and impacts on grid
- Power electronics
- Advanced control techniques/energy management systems
- State-of-the-art reviews on EVs

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. Sci is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1200 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.
