Coast and Burn (Pulse and Glide) Calculator

Post by Coulomb Racing »

I've been doing some research on efficient driving techniques for our electric endurance vehicle and in the process ended up creating a Calculator in excel for determining whether a Coast and Burn (a.k.a Pulse and Glide) strategy is more efficient in an EV than maintaining a constant speed.

If you'd like to use the calculator or see how I created it, please visit the Endless Sphere thread here:
