ABSTRACT

The use of electrically powered vehicles is becoming more and more established in practice and represents a promising solution in future ensuring quality mobility and reducing the pollution in the environment. Since these vehicles are high-priced, and there is still a low awareness among consumers in terms of energy consumption and pollution, vehicles with an internal combustion engine remain the norm. For this purpose, the study, here, provides an energy consumption estimate of an electric vehicle and thus its carbon footprint and compares it to the energy consumption and carbon footprint of a vehicle with an internal combustion engine. The results of this study reveal the orientation for the use of electric vehicles in future, in terms of raising awareness among the individual manufacturers, consumers and, last but not the least, the society as a whole, which is committed to sustainable developmental orientations.
