Abstract: The analysis of homologation rules ECE 91/441 and further modifications has moved the authors of this paper to investigate how a driving cycle taking place in the realistic traffic conditions of a town could lead to different results in terms of fuel consumption, when compared to the ones obtained by cars manufacturers in respect of the standard cycles proposed by the European Standards. By this, two driving cycles have been considered and experimented in the city of Bari, Italy, one following a urban route, the other taking place on a suburban track. The experiments have been carried out utilizing two different Hybrid Electric Vehicles provided by two leading and competing car Manufacturers. The analysis of those experiments has shown which architecture can be more suitable for final users, and how far the homologation standards are from reality. Also the theoretical amount of kinetic energy that could be recovered thanks to this class of passenger cars has been investigated. Keywords: HEV, series/parallel hybrid vehicles, ECE 91/441 cycle, regenerative energy, fuel consumption.
