57. The representative from OICA introduced GRPE-85-35 on the future of UN GTR No. 21. The representative from Germany confirmed, following test performed according to UN GTR No. 21, that some clarifications and revisions to UN GTR No. 21 would be needed, especially for high powered vehicles. GRPE agreed to keep this item on this agenda for the following session of GRPE.
58. The representative from OICA introduced GRPE-85-36 introducing its view on the forthcoming activity on heavy duty battery durability. The Chair of the IWG on EVE asked, according to the view of the representative from OICA, whether some part of the UN GTR developed for light duty vehicles would potentially be usable for heavy duty applications, or a whole new UN GTR would be needed. The representative from OICA said a new UN GTR would probably be more appropriate, with some elements from the light duty UN GTR potentially be used.
