Environmental pressure and technological development is finally bringing Battery operated Electric Vehicles (BEVs) to the roads. Numerous studies have shown the energy-efficiency benefits of BEVs with respect to Internal Combustion Engine Vehicles (ICEVs). However, to the best of our knowledge, the impact of traffic management policies on energy efficiency when BEVs and ICEVs co-exist has not been addressed. In this paper, we evaluate the overall energy-efficiency of mixed BEVs-ICEVs scenarios in terms of total gasoline and electricity consumption for various penetration rates of BEVs at an isolated intersection. We employed our intelligent intersection management architecture (IIMA) equipped with the synchronous intersection management protocol (SIMP) against the conventional Round-Robin (RR) intersection management. Simulation results using the SUMO simulation framework show that SIMP outperforms RR for different penetration rates of BEVs, achieving up to ~200% upturn under particular traffic conditions.
