Hybrid vehicles more fuel efficient in India, China than in US

g condition," Saxena explained. "We weighed the importance of these three mechanisms against each other for the Indian vehicles, and found that the ability to increase engine efficiency was the most important reason, second was regenerative braking, then engine shutdown."

The engineering results were a little surprising, Saxena said. "We went into the study thinking regenerative braking would make for very unique fuel-saving opportunities," he said.

Indian government analyzing Berkeley Lab results

The government of India, which launched a national plan last year with the goal of getting 6 to 7 million hybrid and electric vehicles (EVs) on the road by 2020, is already working with the Berkeley Lab researchers to further analyze their results. India is a member country of the Electric Vehicles Initiative (EVI) of the Clean Energy Ministerial, a global forum of governments focused on accelerating the transition to clean energy technologies. Through EVI, Berkeley Lab's research will guide India in moving forward with its EV plan.

"This research performed by Berkeley Lab has helped us understand in much better detail the real-world value of electric vehicles to India," said Ambuj Sharma, Additional Secretary of India's Department of Heavy Industry. "Their work has shown that Indian conditions are much more conducive to electric vehicles than we expected and has given a greater impetus and importance to the National Mission on Electric Mobility."

Gopal says one of the next steps is to work on China, which is also a participant in the Electric Vehicles Initiative. China has been the world's largest car market since 2009, with double-digit percentage increases in annual car sales, but sales are expected to grow even faster as household income rises. "The main reason for the impending vehicle boom is that people are getting wealthier, and there's a very strong tie between greater household wealth and vehicle ownership," Gop
