Abstract
Electrical vehicles are seriously considered today. However their energy needs depend seriously on the way how they are designed, ranging from electric bicycles to the electrical utility vehicle, it can differ from 1kWh to more than 20kWh/100km. One can look at the problem if it is better to use compressed natural gas in a vehicle directly or is it better to make electricity first and use that electricity in an electric vehicle. A special attention is given to the development of ultra-light electric cars “Ecologic Low Budget Electric Vehicle” ELBEV. It permits to cut down the energy consumption down to 2-3kWh/100km, especially suited for single person daily commuting needs.
Les véhicules électriques sont pris au sérieux dans les temps actuels. Cependant, leur consommation dépend très fort comment ils sont conçus, du vélo électrique, au véhicule utilitaire, cela peut changer de 1kWh vers plus de 20kWh/100km . On peut aussi entrevoir si on fait mieux de rouler avec du gaz comprimé ou de produire de l'électricité et de l'utiliser dans un véhicule électrique. Une attention spéciale est donne au développement des véhicules ultralégers "Véhicule électrique écologique à budget limité" VEEBL. Cela permet de réduire la consommation vers des valeurs très basses de 2-3kWh/100km, spécifiquement utile pour les déplacements quotidiens.
