ECE amends EV regulation

  • 31-Mar-2010 05:27 EDT

At the March session of the World Forum for the Harmonization of Vehicle Regulations (also known as WP.29), a major update to the ECE regulation on the safety of electric vehicles (EVs), ECE Regulation No. 100, was adopted, according to InterRegs. The update, the 01 series of amendments to ECE 100, revises the regulation to more accurately reflect current battery and EV technology. Also, whereas the previous version of ECE 100 only applied to battery-electric vehicles, the 01 series extends the scope of the regulation to include all vehicles equipped with an electric traction motor, including hybrid-electric vehicles and fuel-cell vehicles.
