China has become the largest vehicle market in the world and the Chinese market is still booming. Accompanying this quick development, environmental pollution and energy supply are two big issues and bottlenecks for future sustainable development.

The good news is that not only the Chinese government but also companies are promoting new energy vehicles such as the hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) and electric vehicles (EVs) in this huge market. It is undoubted that the new energy vehicles will play an important role in the near future.

This special issue invites original articles that address state-of-the-art technologies and polices related to the research and development of HEVs and EVs in China. Of particular interest are papers devoted to the most innovative technologies and useful policies in HEVs or EVs.

Subject Coverage
Suitable topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Development plans and strategies for new energy vehicles
  • System architecture of HEVs and EVs
  • Novel control strategies for HEVs or EVs
  • Hybrid powertrains research
  • Energy optimisation and management in HEVs or EVs
  • Battery technology and battery energy management
