Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) and Electric Vehicle (EV) Terminology
This SAE Information Report contains definitions for HEV and EV terminology. It is intended that this document be a resource for those writing other HEV and EV documents, specifications, standards, or recommended practices.
Rationale: SAE J1715 (Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) and Electric Vehicle (EV) Terminology) covers the basic terminology around electrified vehicles. These definitions have not changed in the past five years and hence the document as written is still applicable today. Other SAE documents also contain specialized terms but at this point there is little benefit of centralizing additional terms into J1715.
