AVL Approach for 100km/ltr Fuel Economy in a 2-Wheeler Production Vehicle 2000-01-1441
The aim of the paper is to define a concept which has the potential to achieve and exceed the fuel economy target of 100 km/litre. Several existing vehicles based on different engine and vehicle concepts have been analysed for a benchmark study of the present best vehicles on the Indian 2-wheeler market. Additional to this study, more detailed investigations have been made to evaluate the potential of each individual loss in the drive train from the combustion over friction to the drive train, chassis and tyre specification. Out of these results four different engine and vehicle concepts have been synthesised and indicate how a 100 km/ltr in steady state driving could be achieved.
