3 Terms and definitions
The terms and definitions as defined in GB/T 2900.41, GB/T 19752, GB/T
24548 and GB/T 30038 as well as the following terms and definitions apply to this document.
3.1 Vehicle
Electric vehicle; EV
The following vehicles are collectively called electric vehicles.
Non off-vehicle-chargeable hybrid electric vehicle; NOVC-HEV
Hybrid electric vehicles that obtains full energy from on-vehicle fuel under normal use. In accordance with selection method of driving mode
Hybrid electric vehicle with selective switch
Hybrid electric vehicles with manual driving mode selection. Vehicle
selectable driving modes include pure electric mode, thermal mode and
hybrid mode.
Hybrid electric vehicles without selective switch
Hybrid electric vehicles without manual driving mode selection functions. The vehicle driving mode can be automatically switched based on different working conditions.
Range extended electric vehicle; REEV
An electric vehicle capable of achieving all of its power performance in a purely electric mode, but when the on-vehicle rechargeable energy storage system cannot meet the requirements of the cruising range, the vehicle
auxiliary power supply device is turned on to provide electric power for the power system to extend the range of the electric vehicle. The on-vehicle auxiliary power supply device and the drive system do not have drive-
connections such as drive shaft (belt).
Fuel cell electric vehicle; FCEV
Electric vehicles using the fuel cell system as a single power source or using both the fuel cell system and the rechargeable energy storage system as a hybrid power source.
Electric power train
Electric power train composed of electric driving system and drive system.
Hybrid power train
Power train of a hybrid electric vehicle, composed of a power source that can add fuel and an electric power train.
Drive direction control
A special device for selecting the direction of the vehicle travel (forward or reverse) by the driver?€?s operation. For example. joystick or button switch.
Vehicle control unit
Powertrain controller, which collects the accelerator pedal signal, brake pedal signal and other component signals, makes the appropriate judgments, controls the actions of each underlying component controller, to realize the vehicle drive, brake, and energy recovery.
Electric power system
Circuit systems that generate, transport, and use electrical energy, including power supplies.
Regenerative braking
The system that converts (or partially converts) the kinetic energy and potential energy of the vehicle in the driving process into the energy of the on-board rechargeable energy storage system and store it when the vehicle slides, slows down or descends.
Power battery system
The device on the vehicle body to accommodate a charging socket
(conductive charging) or charging port (inductive charging).
Passenger compartment
The space that accommodates the occupants, enclosed by the roof, floor, side walls, doors, glass windows and front wall, back wall or rear seat back support plate, and electrical protection bar to prevent occupants from
touching live parts, and enclosure. Electrical installations and components

external influence or direct contact in any direction.
Note. External influences may include the ingress of water or dust, to prevent mechanical damage.
