On the road to emission-free mobility – electrically propelled road vehicles
Many Asian, American, and European car makers are developing cars and trucks with electric drive train components and traction battery systems to help reduce fuel consumption. Meeting mandated fleet fuel economy targets is a strong development force. The growing market for electric vehicles (EVs), hybrid electric vehicles (HEV), and fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEV) will help reduce pollution and greenhouse emissions.
