Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) is one of the biggest fossil fuel consumers. Many attempts have been made by researchers to replace ICE with electric motors and batteries as a source of energy. On the other hand, the dependence on ICE cannot be eliminated. One of the better ideas is to combine an ICE with an electric motor or called a hybrid. This study aims to determine the amount of energy consumption used by Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEV) in urban areas in a tropical megapolitan city. The method used is to monitor the use of energy in hybrid cars directly. Sensors and data acquisition are installed on the vehicle to find out the route, speed, fuel consumption, electricity consumption, etc. Data acquisition is also placed on pure ICE vehicles with comparable engine capacity. Previous research, namely the analysis of energy consumption in the Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV), will also be used as a comparison. The results obtained indicate that HEV could travel 22 kilometers with one liter of gasoline. ICE car could cover 13 kilometers by 1 liter of petrol. And PHEV could travel 34 kilometers with 1 liter of gasoline. Thus it can be concluded that HEV has the advantage of saving gasoline usage, but PHEV is the best of them.
