    Software like Maverick or Get my tracks or other makes it possible:
    To track the motion of the own car.

    We are just in front of a total change in our mobility towards plug-in hybrid and electric cars.

    But what will be the best choice between battery capacity and range extender power? How much electric power would Your car consume?

    It's not a simple calculation, because electric drive systems are complete difference.

    Everybody knows, that a car consumes more in city traffic than at a moderate speed on the highway. This can be wrong at electric cars.

    The Renault Kangoo Cleanova II is listed according to European Driving cycle.

    14,4 kWh / 100 km in the city
    19,6 kWh / 100 km outside the city.

    So I will make a simulator for this.

    Equip different vehicles with different combinations of batteries and range extender and look how this vehicle would perform on Your tracks.

    So I think on something like choose the tracks,
    choose vehicle and equipment and an output like

    80% electric only
    20% with range extender
    15 kWh electric power for 100km
    1 litre gasoline for the range extender.

    Compare real consumption of Your gasoline car to simulated consumption of a plug-in hybrid or electric vehicles.

    Where would be recharge stations best placed, to reduce range extender usage?

    There are many detail questions about designing our new mobility.
