The finite nature of the fossil fuel supply, strong regulations such as the CO2 limits and the wish for pollution-free mobility has led to a great variety of electric drives for road and off-road vehicles. Beside various hybrid propulsion technologies, there exist battery electric and even fuel cell electric concepts. Each system configuration has unique advantages and disadvantages and is suitable for different applications. Therefore the battery technologies play an important role in fulfilling the numerous requirements in shown vehicle concepts. This chapter as a general introduction gives an overview of the whole range of electric drives for different applications, guiding readers to the following chapters that focus on the advances in one of the key research fields “battery technologies for electric road and off-road vehicles”.
