Advancing New Vehicle Technologies and Fuels

This brief describes the Vehicle Technologies (VT) program, which is run by the U.S. Department of Energy. The VT program actively develops and accelerates the deployment of efficient and clean vehicle technologies, and renewable fuels. Current goals and activities include the development of hybrid-electric and plug-in hybrid-electric vehicles, deployment of alternative fuels, development of high strength materials (the use of which can reduce vehicle weight), and optimization of fuel systems to improve fuel efficiency of vehicles.
