Message from the Chair - March 2021

Welcome to the IEEE Transportation Electrification Community! 

 Our mission is to coordinate all things transportation within IEEE.  Honestly, our task gets bigger every day with applications that would have been thought of as “futuristic” if not downright crazy just a few year ago, from autonomous cars to fully electric airplanes and super high-speed trains.

The Future of Transportation for Reducing Emissions

by Kaushik Rajashekara, IEEE


The advancement of flying cars and eVTOL (electric vertical takeoff and landing) vehicles is reshaping the future of transportation. In addition to helping us reach our destinations more quickly and cut road traffic congestion, flying cars and eVTOL vehicles could help dramatically reduce the overall greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from transportation globally.

GM Opens Up a New Front in Its Battle With Tesla: Batteries

A new $2.3 billion plant cranks out Ultium cells to power GM’s upcoming line of electric vehicles

By Lawrence Ulrich

In April of 1966, a shiny white Chevrolet Impala became the first car off the assembly line of a new General Motors plant in Lordstown, Ohio. It was the glorious start of what became a checkered history for the area. This blue-collar town survived an infamous labor strike in 1972, the Chapter 11 bankruptcy of GM in 2009, and a string of unmemorable small cars—including the Chevy Vega and Cavalier—before emerging as a symbol of industrial rebirth with the production of the Chevy Cruze in 2010.
