China plug-in electric vehicle sales in 2017: almost four times those in the U.S

Compared to previous years, overall car-sales growth in the U.S. has all but plateaued at around 17.5 million.
China is doing little better, with growth reaching just 3 percent for 2017. But the Chinese new-vehicle market is (MORE)

Impact analysis for market uptake scenarios and policy implications

Bettina Kampman, Huib van Essen, Willem Braat, Max Grünig, Ravi Kantamaneni, Etienne Gabel

Electric Vehicles (EVs) are a promising technology for reducing the environmental impacts of transport. To acquire an overview of the possible impacts of the introduction of EVs in the EU, DG CLIMA commissioned CE Delft, ICF and Ecologic to study the status and prospects of EV technology, the potential market uptake of EVs and their likely impacts. This study focuses on passenger cars and light commercial vehicles and covers the various types of EV: full electric vehicles, plug-in hybrid EVs and EVs with range extenders. It includes an assessment of impacts on both the transport and electricity sector. This report is the final deliverable of the study and covers the assessment of impacts of EVs and policy considerations.

A methodology and a tool for evaluating hybrid electric powertrain configurations

Nikolce Murgovski; Jonas Sjöberg; Jonas Fredriksson
Int. J. of Electric and Hybrid Vehicles
2011 Vol.3, No.3 pp 219 – 245

This paper describes a methodology for automatic optimisation of hybrid electric powertrains. This methodology is developed and implemented in a tool, CAPSimO, and the paper is written in the form of describing the tool. Given the user inputs, which are dynamic vehicle model, driving cycle and optimisation criterion, the tool first produces a simplified powertrain model in a form of static maps, before dynamic programming is used to find an optimal power split which minimises the chosen criterion. The tool does not require that the vehicle model is transparent, which makes it possible to work on models hidden for intellectual property reasons. The paper presents two examples of powertrain evaluation, in terms of fuel consumption, for a parallel and a parallel-series powertrain.

SAE 2018 Government/ Industry Meeting

The SAE Government/Industry Meeting is an annual conference designed to unite significant numbers of government policy and regulatory makers with auto industry representatives to discuss the effect of government action on future vehicle design. The Meeting provides a neutral forum to share information to provide the legislative and regulatory bodies the means to properly analyze the technical aspects prior to drafting legislation or regulations for safety, emission control, and energy conservation

Plug-In Electric Vehicles: A Case Study of Seven Markets

Sydney Vergis, Thomas S. Turrentine, Lewis Fulton, Elizabeth Fulton
Institute of Transportation Studies ? University of California, Davis

At the current stage of plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) market development, sales rates vary dramatically across different countries and regions. For policy-makers and other stakeholders it is useful to understand the major social, economic, and policy drivers of vehicle adoption. This paper provides insights into the developing PEV markets in Norway, Netherlands, California, United States, France, Japan, and Germany. This is accomplished by applying a Technological Innovation System (TIS) approach that systematically identifies the role of different factors in promulgating new markets. Our..
