A Bibliometric Analysis of Electric Vehicle Research
Widespread use of electric vehicles (EVs) - including hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), battery electric vehicles (BEVs), and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) - could reform the transportation sector and reduce dependence on fossil fuels. In recent years, the development of EVs has taken on an accelerated pace. Given the magnitude of knowledge produced, an assessment of the state of art could benefit the development of this area of study. This paper uses a bibliometric methodology to analyze citation relationships and highlight trends of EV research. Studying the structure of EV literature will provide insights on the status of EV research, the multi-disciplinary nature of EV study as well as identify emerging trends. Results of this research will provide the engineering manager with a better understanding of how various streams of research related to EVs are developing.
