Transport policies worldwide foresee electric mobility as a way of mitigating greenhouse gas emissions and energy consumption for transportation. Market forecast scenarios predict different shares of electric vehicles. The paper deals with estimation of energy savings for different scenarios. It will be achieved by defining representative vehicles according to the fleet data and market forecasts and by applying the VSP (Vehicle-Specific Power) based model for microsimulation of traffic scenarios. The application of the methodology that takes into account electric and conventional vehicles will yield traffic energy consumption for different scenarios. Case studies will be presented showing impact of different EV shares and traffic volumes. To simulate the traffic conditions and energy consumption, a microsimulation model SUMO will be used.
