Hybrid and Electric Vehicles (HEV TCP)

The HEV TCP aims to produce and disseminate balanced, objective information about advanced electric, hybrid, and fuel cell vehicles for governments and local authorities. Hybrid and electric vehicles (HEV) hold great potential to contribute to reducing energy consumption and emissions from road transport.
