    Decarbonising transport is proving to be one of today's major challenges for the global automotive industry due to many factors such as the increase in greenhouse gas and particulate emissions not only affecting the climate but also humans, the increase in pollution, rapid oil depletion, issues with energy security and dependency from foreign sources and population growth. Major breakthroughs in low and ultra-low carbon technologies and vehicles are urgently required. this chapter highlights the current status of hybrid, battery and fuel cell electric vehicles from an electrochemical and market point of view.
