Abstract

The breakthrough of key technology on battery electric vehicles is critical to of hybrid and fuel cell electric vehicles. This paper introduces the technical configuration of the new advanced electric vehicle and design of lightweight vehicle and integrated assembly. The Electric Vehicle developed at CATARC acquires many creative results, such as control strategy of vehicle, CAN Bus technology, heat management system of lithium-ion battery pack, fault diagnosis, safety management for high-voltage system and body comfort control. Also, this paper evaluates the vehicle performance and defines the technical scheme by using simulation tools. Simulation results are also validated by vehicle test. At last, the test results on the performance of electric vehicle are systematically introduced.
