The papers in this special section focus on innovative electrified vehicles. According to the “Global EV Outlook 2021” of International Energy Agency (IEA), ten million electric cars were on the world’s roads in 2020. It was an important year for the electrification of mass market transportation with the share of 4.6% of total car sales around the world, despite of Covid-19 pandemic and its related economic downturn and lockdowns. Nevertheless, the challenge remains enormous to reach the target of 230 million EVs on the world’s roads by 2030, according to the IEA Sustainable Development Scenario. In addition to technologies related to road vehicles, the electrification of railway vehicles, air and water vehicles also requires fast development to combat the global climate change. Papers included in this special section were presented at the IEEE Vehicle Power and Propulsion Conference (VPPC).
