Abstract [en]

New trends for environmentally-friendly mobility are rising and expectations derived from customers are significant. Urban areas such as London or even Stockholm are starting to build urban tolls by charging conventional vehicles while full‐electric powered vehicles are exempted. Carbon taxes will be certainly introduced at the EU scale in the next decade, which will strengthen those expectations of   transportation  changes  especially  regarding  private  vehicles.  High  electrification  degree  of conventional  vehicles  has  to  be  performed  to  answer  to  those  expectations.  To  avoid  range restriction mainly related to the energy content limitations in battery electric vehicles (BEV), fuel tank has to be kept in conjunction with internal combustion engine. Thereby, according to this statement, the design of either a plug‐in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) or a range extender (REX) in a second extent with an extensive full‐electric range is relevant in the next decade.
