Hybrid Electric City Car - Simulation of Conceptual Solutions 2002-01-2145
The results of computational simulations of city car conceptual designs in a few configurations are described in this paper. To ensure comparable conditions, all concepts are based on the same small vehicle body. Such vehicle is based on following assumptions: small size, low energy consumption, low emission as well as limited range and utilitarian capacity for two adult persons and small luggage. There is a specific market niche for vehicles dedicated for city use.
