Analysis of energy consumption of electric vehicles equipped with a hybrid energy storage

The paper characterizes currently used vehicles and presents an analysis of fuel consumption of engine cars in the EU in the context of decreasing fuel resources. The article also shows the dependencies describing the resistance forces acting on the vehicle during the drive and the methods for determining the power needed to accelerate and to brake which is possible to recover. In the paper, an analysis of energy consumption of a sample vehicle on two routes of different characteristics is also performed.
