This SAE Information Report identifies and defines the preferred technical guidelines relating to safety for vehicles that contain High Voltage (HV), such as Electric Vehicles (EV), Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEV), Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV), Fuel Cell Vehicles (FCV) and Plug-In Fuel Cell Vehicles (PFCV) during normal operation and charging, as applicable. Guidelines in this document do not necessarily address maintenance, repair, or assembly safety issues.
This document was generated to provide vehicle safety criteria for Electric Vehicles. It was the intent to include Hybrid vehicles for their High Voltage (HV) systems but we now have additional variations of Hybrid Electric (HEV), Plug-In Hybrid Electric (PHEV), Fuel Cell (FCV) and Plug-In Fuel Cell (PFCV) designs to mention a few. The architecture and the size and chemistry of EVs HV source, has also significantly changed since this document was issued due to newer technologies and packaging, and alternative High Voltage sources such as UltraCaps, etc have been included in designs. This document is being updated to include these variations and additions.

The Hybrid Technical Standards Committee reports to the Powertrain Systems Group of the Motor Vehicle Council. The Committee is responsible for developing and maintaining SAE Standards, Recommended Practices, and Information Reports related to the field of hybrid vehicle technology. The following topics are within the scope of this committee's work: ¿ safety aspects of hybrid systems in vehicles ¿ test procedures to establish the performance of hybrid systems and components ¿ nomenclature ¿ vehicle interface and serviceability requirements Participants in the SAE Hybrid Technical Standards Committee include OEMs, suppliers, consulting firms, government, and other interested parties.
* Redlines comparisons are available for those standards listed in the Revision History that contain a radio button. A redline comparison of the current version against a revision is accomplished by selecting the radio button next to the standard and then selecting 'compare'. At this time, Redline versions only exist for some AMS standards. SAE will continue to add redline versioning with ongoing updates to SAE MOBILUS.
