Electric, Hybrid, and Fuel Cell Vehicle Technologies for Zero Emissions: The Rise of Electric Vehicles


The automotive industry is experiencing a significant shift towards sustainable mobility, with electric vehicles (EVs) at the forefront. Batteries store electricity to power EVs, eliminating the need for fossil fuels. Within the realm of EVs, there are various types, including battery electric vehicles (BEVs), hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs), and fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs). Each of these technologies plays a unique role in driving towards zero emissions and reducing the environmental impact of transportation. The book comprises 50 chapters, covering topics such as the introduction to electric vehicle technology for zero emissions, the environmental impact, technological advancements, cost considerations, infrastructure development, market trends, policy and regulation, challenges and limitations, comparative analysis with other zero emission technologies, future prospects and recommendations, environmental sustainability, energy efficiency and resource utilization, performance and driving experience, consumer perception and behavior, global impact and international cooperation, urban planning and smart mobility solutions, health benefits, and quality of life. The book delves into Innovation in EV Technology, Energy Storage Solutions, Vehicle-to-Infrastructure Communication, Data Security and Privacy Issues, Sustainable Transportation Education and Training, Public Perception and Education, Vehicle-to-Grid Integration, Smart Mobility Solutions, Technological Innovations for Future EVs, and International Cooperation for Sustainable Transportation with FCEVs.
