Dynamic Simulation of a Light-Weight, Low-Drag, Hybrid-Electric Sports Coupe 2005-01-3479

The University of Queensland UltraCommuter concept is an ultra-light, low-drag, hybrid-electric sports coupe designed to minimize energy consumption and environmental impact while enhancing the performance, styling, features and convenience that motorists enjoy. This paper presents a detailed simulation study of the vehicle's performance and fuel economy using ADVISOR, including a detailed description of the component models and parameters assumed. Results from the study include predictions of a 0-100kph acceleration time of <9s, and top speed of 170kph, an electrical energy consumption of <67Wh/km in ZEV mode and a petrol-equivalent fuel consumption of <2.5 L/100km in charge-sustaining HEV mode. Overall, the results of the ADVISOR modeling confirm the UltraCommuter's potential to achieve high performance with high efficiency, and the authors look forward to a confirmation of these estimates following completion of the vehicle.
