Redelbach, Martin and Klötzke, Matthias and Friedrich, Horst E. (2012) Impact of lightweight design on energy consumption and cost effectiveness of alternative powertrain concepts. European electric Vehicle Conference, 19.-22. November 2012, Brüssel, Belgien.

Abstract

This study analyses the impact of weight reduction on the energy consumption and related costs for different advanced electric powertrain concepts. Several hybrid architecures and a full battery electric vehicle are assessed and compared to a concentional car with internal combustion engine. To evaluate the effects of lightweight on fuel economy a large set of parameter variations was performed applying a vehicle simulation tool. The simulation results were integrated in a total cost of ownership model to analyze a vehicle simulation tool. The simulation results were integrated in a total cost of ownership.
