Electric Vehicle Technologies and Targets

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) set goals for plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) to match the price and driving range of conventional gas-powered vehicles by 2022. NREL teams are working closely with industry partners on battery, power electronics, and climate control innovations designed to reach these targets. Learn more about NREL's research related to these goals, including the automotive components researchers are currently working to improve, in the slideshow below.
