The technology development surrounding EVs is significantly different and more far-reaching than the developments that have driven the hybrid sector to date. Not only are there technology boundaries to be pushed in terms of individual components (electric motors, control electronics, energy storage and vehicle control systems), the characteristics of the EV are such that issues such as light-weighting are paramount. Advances in weight saving and the rapid development of enabling technologies is having a profound effect on cutting down the traditional disadvantages of the "conventional" EV powertrain. The 2011 edition of The Electric Vehicles Report examines the key aspects of EV development and the issues affecting demand. The report includes detailed sections on: • EV Technology (batteries/energy storage/ultra-capacitors/regenerative braking) • Electric Motors (motor technology, in-wheel motors, electric corner modules, range extenders) • Grid connectivity and charging infrastructure (electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE), inductive charging) Sections on market development, and OEM and Vehicle Programs are also included, along with profiles of 26 key industry suppliers.
