Abstract

Total energy efficiency of an EV is dependent of multiple different parameters, some resulting from vehicle's design and characteristics of the system components, some from the driving environment and ambient conditions. This paper describes first assessment of the energy use and efficiency of an EV, converted from a normal ICE-driven car using mostly commercially available components. Test programme consisted of various driving cycles, as well as low ambient temperatures. Furthermore, efforts were made to separate the contribution of every system component to the overall efficiency. The results indicate that total energy efficiency is heavily dependent on type of driving - urban or highway. In addition, it was noted that low ambient temperature also deteriorate performance and efficiency.
