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.
The document is being updated a) to intersperse previously separated hybrid and electric terms for easier reading, b) to add additional diagrams and tables as well as several definitions, c) to clean up minor editing items called out by the SAE Publications group, and d) to coordinate removal of specialized battery terms to a companion document J1715/2, issued by the Battery Terminology Committee.
