Battery performance of a proposed solar car has been investigated under different road conditions while the car makes a nip in one of the longest routes in Dhaka city, using a model developed in Matlab Simulink. A significant reduction in energy consumption is observed when the car runs at lower speed, which is atthbuted to lower air drag at lower speed. Energy consumption further reduces with the increase in number of stoppages. Thus the solar/electric car will be an ideal mode of transport for a city like Dhaka, where traffic congestion is a daily occurrence.
