Ongoing & Current Research

The FHWA has recently initiated a study to evaluate the prospects and expectations for short and long-term deployment of electric vehicles (EVs) and analyze the potential impact of this deployment on the mission of the FHWA. The FHWA has undertaken this study for the following reasons: (1) to provide information on the expected market penetration and viability of EVs in both the short and long-term; (2) analyze the implications for FHWA's mission; (3) analyze the potential financial implications for available highway revenues; and (4) to assist State and local transportation agencies in understanding if, and how, transportation infrastructure may have to change to facilitate, support, and/or provide emergency response to EVs.
