Hybrid Electric Vehicles

Some hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) combine a conventional internal combustion engine (using gasoline, diesel, natural gas, ethanol, or other fuel) with the battery and electric propulsion motor of an electric vehicle. Other hybrids combine a fuel cell with batteries to power electric propulsion motors.

Vehicle Testing Reports

Several types of testing have been done on HEVs to date HEVAmerica Baseline Performance Testing, Accelerated Reliability and Fleet Testing, and Pomona Loop Open Road Test Results.
