Improvements in electric traction drives are essential to electric drive vehicles, and have the potential to significantly reduce petroleum consumption in the transportation sector as well as help meet national economic and energy security goals.  Hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) can reduce petroleum use compared to average conventional vehicles by as much as 50%, while plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) extend these savings even further.
