Abstract:

Carbon dioxide equivalent greenhouse gas emissions arise when fuel with embodied carbon is used by vehicles to satisfy their propulsion requirements. The emission of other air pollutants arises from the use of such fuel. Mass is the largest determinant of the energy and power required by a vehicle to complete a journey (Goldberg, 2000). Additional energy is required to overcome both the drag (forces), which acts on the vehicle in motion, and the losses from the conversion of potential energy ...
