Designers and manufacturers of electric vehicles, along with component makers and other participants in the automotive supply chain, will benefit from a new CD collection of ISO standards for electric, hybrid and fuel-cell road vehicles. The collection is a "one-stop shop" which will also prove useful as a reference for transport regulators and for buyers and operators of vehicle fleets.

These standards aim to harmonize test methods and increase efficiency and safety in the development of electric and fuel-cell vehicles. They provide requirements for issues such as:

  • Functional safety
  • Vehicle and component test methods for electrical disturbances
  • On-board rechargeable energy storage systems
  • Exhaust, speed, energy and fuel consumption measurements

The standards in the ISO Collection, Electric, hybrid and fuel-cell road vehicles, were developed by ISO technical committee ISO/TC 22, Road vehicles, which has authored more than 750 standards, with the participation of experts from 28 countries.

The CD is available from ISO national member institutes (see the complete list with contact details). It may also be obtained directly from the ISO Central Secretariat through the ISO Store.
