Vehicle Ad-hoc network (VANET) have sensing nodes moving with different speeds. The vehicular cloud is a group of vehicles communicating with each other to share the resources provided from the central cloud. The end-to-end throughput for multi-hop wireless network is analysed in this paper using a set of non-linear equations. The interference due to the hidden nodes and the neighbouring nodes is considered into computing the end-to-end throughput. The contention graph is used to clarify the connection among the nodes into the network to find the capacity of the individual links to facilitate estimating the end-to-end throughput. Effect of the cloud on the end-to-end throughput is also illustrated in this paper. The results show that the throughput with employing cloud is lower than that without using the cloud.
