On the Relationship between Gross Vehicle Weight, Payload, Effective Range, and Cost of Electric Vehicles 780220
The interdependence between gross vehicle weight, curb weight, payload and drive weight is established in general for electric vehicles. Based upon the FAKRA Driving cycle, the range is expressed as a function of gross vehicle weight for electric vehicles equipped with different types of storage devices. The cost for operating these vehicles is calculated and compared.
