CALL for papers: special issue on “Materials and Technologies for Electric Vehicles”

 

Lead Editor of Special Issue: Dr. Sanjay Mavinkere Rangappa

Scope of Special issue

An increasing variety of materials for products and components could help to solve the problem of increasing mass efficiency; the automobile industry is already observing a trend towards multi-material design for several components. From an industrial perspective, this transition appears to be the result of growing sustainability expectations combined with advancements in material and manufacturing technologies that make it possible to adopt and utilize novel materials in mass-produced Electric Vehicles. In order to reduce mass in their products without sacrificing functioning or raising prices beyond the reach of their target market, the Electric Vehicles sector must offer innovative materials. In order to be able to follow both legal requirements and industry trends, this must also be done on a regular basis with short lead times.

This special issue will be a collection of 15 peer-reviewed contributions that present original breakthrough research in the field of Electric Vehicles. Moreover, the special issue expects to provide a platform to publish cutting-edge research from around the globe.
