Comparative measurements of the energy consumption of 51 electric, hybrid and internal combustion engine vehicles

Abstract:

This paper presents the measured energy consumption of a range of " fuel efficient" vehicles over a 57 mile urban/extra-urban route. The results show that on average the electric vehicles used the least amount of energy (0.62MJ/km average), followed by the hybrid vehicles (1.14 MJ/km), and internal combustion engine vehicles (1.68 MJ/km). Estimates of CO2 emissions finds that hybrids gave the lowest CO2 emissions, with around half of the vehicles emitting less than 70gCO2/km. The most efficie...
