About World Electric Vehicle Journal


The World Electric Vehicle Journal (ISSN 2032-6653) is the first peer-reviewed international scientific journal that comprehensively covers all studies related to battery, hybrid, and fuel cell electric vehicles.

Responding to demands from academia, this journal is intended to complement the International Electric Vehicle Symposium and Exhibition (EVS). Since its inception in 1969, the International Electric Vehicle Symposium and Exhibition (EVS) series has been at the forefront of e-mobility and has grown to become the largest and most prominent global event in the electric vehicle industry, academia and research, showcasing current and emerging technologies both in the market and under development.

The EVS is hosted by the World Electric Vehicle Association (WEVA), which consists of the Electric Drive Transportation Association (EDTA) in North America, the European Association for Electromobility (AVERE) in Europe and the Electric Vehicle Association of the Asia Pacific (EVAAP) in Asia Pacific, organizing the EVS in their region in turn.

The World Electric Vehicle Journal is the primary scientific journal serving the interests of the scientific international electric vehicle community.
