Vehicle Propulsion Technologies program

Vehicle and part manufacturers need to adopt new technologies to comply with strict government standards and increased consumer demand for more environmentally responsible vehicles. They are addressing the challenge, in part, by increasing the efficiency and use of electric propulsion. The NRC’s Vehicle Propulsion Technologies (VPT) program will help you develop the technologies you need to be a leader in the growing supply chains associated with vehicle electrification.

Collaborate with us

Whether you are in the aerospace, automotive, rail, or specialized mobility sector, the NRC can help you develop, optimize and test technologies aimed at improving electric vehicle performance, economics and safety. Not only can the NRC perform lab-scale research, testing and pre-certification, we have the facilities and expertise for full-scale prototyping as well as production scale-up.
