Consultation on electric vehicles: IET comments to the Royal Academy of Engineering.

Abstract The IET’s comments focus on battery types and technology; motors and materials; infrastructure considerations; and safety requirements. The electric vehicle will be only one technology in a mix of sustainable transport systems in the future. All of these different drive systems have their own characteristics, potentially affecting the range of vehicles, the dynamic performance and the support system requirements.
