Résumé / Abstract
At the beginning of the 80s, research essentially addressed low-consumption vehicles, but a reverse evolution has been observed since 1985. Car manufactureres launch and sell vehicles, with an ever increasing power, and thus, despite the developments observed in engine combustion, vehicle energy consumption has been increasing, even for so-called down-market vehicles.
