AbstractAir pollution in cities is an increasing problem. The increased concentration of toxic harmful substances, including PM10 and PM2.5, is noticeable in the autumn and spring period. This is when the heating period begins. However, the industrial sector is not always responsible for air pollution. Transport also has its share. The share of transport depends on the terrain and buildings. The lack of proper air flow causes emitted suspended dust and other particulates to remain above the city creating smog. In Poland, there are up to 40,000 deaths per year because of PM10 and PM2.5 emissions. The same problem applies to other European cities. Therefore, it is necessary to take specific measures to limit as much as possible the emission of toxic substances. In the case of activities in the transport sector, several solutions are possible. One of them is the use of vehicles with alternative power systems. In the short-term, it is reasonable to use hybrid alternative drives. In order to verify the advantages of using vehicles with hybrid systems, the authors of the article performed comparative tests on a chassis dynamometer. The objects of the study were two vehicles – one with a classic propulsion system and the other with a hybrid system in the current WLTC homologation cycle (WLTP procedure).
