Advances in Electric Automobile
  • Description
  • Author(s) Information

An electric car is an automobile that is propelled by one or more electric motors, using energy stored in rechargeable batteries. The first practical electric cars were produced in the 1880s. Electric cars were popular in the late 19th century and early 20th century, until advances in internal combustion engines, electric starters in particular, and mass production of cheaper gasoline vehicles led to a decline in the use of electric drive vehicles. As of December 2015, there were over 30 models of highway legal all-electric passenger cars and utility vans available. Cumulative global sales of highway-capable light-duty pure electric vehicles passed one million units in total, globally, in September 2016.


In the present book, fifteen typical literatures about Electric Automobile published on international authoritative journals were selected to introduce the worldwide newest progress, which contains reviews or original researches on transportation, environment, civil application, ect. We hope this book can demonstrate advances in Electric Automobile as well as give references to the researchers, students and other related people.
