How much energy does a car need to maintain a constant speed?

    Newton’s laws describe a relationship between force; for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Therefore, as it is implied, not only does a car need to be accelerating to keep moving at a constant speed, the rate of movement determines the amount of acceleration required to maintain that speed: i.e. the faster you go, the more energy for a mass is required to maintain a constant speed, therefore the energy required depends on the speed you want to maintain, and the car you’re driving.

    I’m no math genius, so I hope the citation helps answer, or at least starts you in a good place to answer your question with more concrete results!
