The demand for electric vehicles is high due to the fact of their low travel costs. Meanwhile, an increase in the car driving range is expected. Hence, this paper examines different concepts related to driving a battery electric vehicle. The driving scenarios were divided into two parts. The first part consisted of four stages: driving in a mixed cycle, charging the battery, driving a very short distance, and driving distances that were within the maximum theoretical range of the batteries. The second part involved driving a distance until the range extender system was activated. The outcomes of these experimental investigations are described and the key findings are presented in the discussion.

Wpływ stylu jazdy na zasięg samochodu elektrycznego


Popyt na pojazdy elektryczne jest duży ze względu na niskie koszty podróży. Jednocześnie spodziewany jest wzrost zasięgu. Dlatego w niniejszym artykule przeanalizowano różne koncepcje związane z prowadzeniem pojazdu elektrycznego. Scenariusze jazdy zostały podzielone na dwie części. Pierwsza część składała się z czterech etapów: jazdy w cyklu mieszanym, ładowania pakietu bateryjnego, przejazdu bardzo krótkiego odcinka oraz przejazdu odcinków o różnej długości, mniejszej niż maksymalny zasięg teoretyczny. Druga część polegała na przejechaniu odcinka do momentu aktywacji systemu REx. Wyniki przeprowadzonych badań zostały zaprezentowane, a kluczowe ustalenia przedstawiono w sekcji dyskusji.
