Energy efficient driving becomes more and more important today. There are different arrangements to save energy in city traffic. One possibility is to choose eco-routes. For the calculation of eco-routes different factors have to be considered like street topology, route density and also the drive train of the vehicle. In this paper we will show the energy saving potential and the differences of eco routes of ICEV, BEV and PHEV. We will show how it is possible to generate the necessary data like the travel time and the route energy consumption to calculate eco or time efficient routes. We will also show that eco-routing of the different drive trains is possible with very fast genetic algorithms like the ant colony optimization algorithm.
