The increase exigency of mobility, and consequent the fall down effect on the global pollution due to the use of chemical propellant propulsion has rise the attention of the international community on the pollution free alternative. The paper addresses the main components of modern electric vehicles and the design of a Light Electric Vehicle (LEV) for middle range use. Industrial considerations about the exigency of dedicated infrastructure for introducing electric vehicles in large scales are reported with reference to the MES-DEA experience. A detailed description of the main characteristic of the fuel cell suited for LEV application are given. Experimental results of a full test of compliance for a PEM fuel cell optimized for LEV application are reported.
