The paper presents simulation and optimization methodology of lightweight electric vehicles. The mathematical model of the vehicle, the route, the weather conditions and the control unit have been described. Importance and potential usage of the simulation model mainly for verification of design assumption, optimization of design and kinematics parameters have been presented. The importance of the parameters of optimization evolutionary algorithm have been investigated. The verification research has been carried out for prototype vehicle for two different, well identified travel tracks.
