Sustainable Vehicle Technologies
Chalmers has a long scientific tradition and a set of strong research centres in this profile area, which focuses on improving vehicles and vessels towards better fuel economy and less environmental impact. All conventional transport modes are represented.
Four active fields have been identified:
Combustion engine research and Electric and hybrid vehicles both aim to find sustainable solutions for how to propel vehicles in the future.
Vehicle concepts and design aims at reducing propulsion resistance.
Vehicle environmental impact aims at analysing factors affecting future generations of vehicle powertrains and concepts towards more sustainable vehicle technologies.
