Special Issue Information
Internal combustion vehicles are being replaced by electric vehicles (xEVs) owing to the depletion of fossil fuels and higher emissions of greenhouse gases. xEVs are considered a promising technology for sustainable transportation in the future because of their zero-carbon footprint, high efficiency, and low noise. In the last few decades, fully electric vehicles, plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, fuel cell vehicles, and grid integrated electric vehicles have gained popularity due to advances reported in this technology. Despite significant research development, there exist some barriers that need to be addressed to ensure the full reliability of xEVs in the transport sector. The present Special Issue proposes a platform for presenting the latest research results, research solutions to the existing barriers, and technological advancements as they pertain to xEVs.
This Special Issue is focused on the recent research advances in xEVs, and includes, but is not limited to, the following topics:
- Symmetrical/Asymmetrical design (including thermal, fluid flow, electrical, and structural aspects) for xEVs;
- Thermal modeling and fluid flow analysis for xEVs;
- Structural analysis for xEVs;
- Thermal management of electric motors in xEVs;
- Battery thermal management system for xEVs;
- Efficient HVAC system for xEVs;
- Power electronics (LEDs, inverters, converters, etc.) for xEVs;
- Experimental, numerical, and analytical studies on xEVs;
- Intelligent systems and algorithms for xEVs;
- Optimization techniques for xEVs;
- Energy management systems for xEVs;
- Energy storage systems for xEVs;
- Symmetry and asymmetry analysis for xEVs;
- State-of-the-art reviews on xEVs.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Symmetry is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2000 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.
