The current paper presents a realization of a complex vehicle control task. The goal was to consume the lowest possible energy in a less than 100 kg, wheel hub motor-driven vehicle. The realization is based on two distinguishable operating states which states characterizes well the driving cycle of the vehicle. The main contribution of the proposed method is that it reliably estimates the external loads which interacts the vehicle, the controller can adapt to this changes thus it can guarantee the minimal energy consumption. The vehicle described in the paper is a participant at the Shell Eco-marathon Europe competition in Urban Concept - Battery Electric category.
