ABSTRACT. The paper describes a new approach for driving efficiency estimation. Authors proposed a new approach to assess the energy consumption for vehicle, which are able to rich high speed. Also, there is proposed a new concept of vehicle, which technology based on the ground effect. The concept compounds the automotive and aircraft’s solutions in order to reach high driving speed, driving efficiency and low energy consumption per cargo unit. As a result, the defined performance indicators for the transport systems opens up the possibility to formulate and solve optimization problems of structural and parametric synthesis of new types of transport, provide the analytical tools to make informed decisions in the process of design and construction, provide an overall controlled evolution of transport systems.

Keywords: ground effect, screen effect, concept, driving efficiency, energy consumption, high-speed motion
