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.
