60 g/km CO2 Without Performance Loss 2001-01-3737

The University of Liege and Breuer Technical Development, Belgium, have designed a parallel hybrid drive train, now implemented in a VW Lupo.
The original objectives of the concept were the reduction of total CO2 emissions without performance loss and an acceptable zero-emission range for inner cities.
This paper presents:
  • Metropol, a homemade hybrid simulation software, including engine cold start and dynamic battery models,
  • hybrid management strategy for the lowest CO2 emissions,
  • final performance, consumption and emissions of the vehicle.
