Electric vehicles are widely used today. The biggest problem of electric vehicles are limited energy and limited range. Using energy efficiently is an important issue. In this study, we monitored an electric vehicle's systems and power consuming systems in real time. We predicted the optimal driving mode with electronic control unit using Fuzzy Logic Control. We tested system on electric golf car real time. The measurement parameters are transferred to Vehicle Control Unit via Controller Area Network. The driver can choose driving mode as economical driving, normal driving and sporty driving. Experimental results indicate that our Electronic Control Unit increases the driving range of the electric vehicle.
