Abstract: After years of research and development activities on electric vehicles technologies, new performances of batteries, and power train systems (inverter and electric motors, …) seem to be suitable for new and efficient application in the urban areas mobility. New batteries, based on Sodium-Nickel Chloride and Lithium ions or Lithium polymers, are now suitable to provide to electric vehicles good performances (130 ¬ 150 km of range, 110  120 km/h peak speed) adequate for many urban mission profiles. This paper describes the performances of new electric powertrain, in the light of suitable mission urban profiles, with particular focus on the life cycles costs for the energy management. The paper contains also homologation procedures according ECE-ONU Regulations (laboratory tests, risk analysis, etc…) that was applied for the Type Approval of electric vehicles of the class M1/N1.
