Abstract


Electric vehicles are considered a key technology to reduce fossil fuel consumption, emissions and energy consumption. However, Electric Vehicles require larger battery packs to reach acceptable range levels. The development of new batteries with higher specific energy could reduce the mass and the cost of Electric Vehicles and increase their driving range. This work analyzes the influence of battery specific energy on battery pack mass, energy consumption and the cost per kilometer of a Tesla Model S Electric Vehicle. The energy consumption and the cost per kilometer calculated were 0.221 kWh/km (22.1 kWh/100 km) and 0.024 US$/km respectively.


Keywords
