Electric vehicles
Electric vehicles

The performance and quality of today's electric cars is directly related to the progress made in battery technology. Significant work is being done to increase the driving range (specific energy) and reduce the cost while maintaining or improving performance capabilities.

Hybrid electric vehicles

Hybrid electric vehicles (HEV) have two power sources. One converts fuel into useable energy, and the other -- an electric motor powered by an advanced energy storage device -- lowers the demand placed on the first power source.
