Abstract This work studies the feasibility of reducing the temperature in an electric car cabin through a ventilation device. The temperature and velocity fields in the cabin were simultaneously solved for through CFD means. Current results show that most of the solar irradiation energy is absorbed by the seats especially when they are directly hit by the sun beam. However, the seat temperature can be significantly brought down with the help of a ventilation device. There exists a flow rate which is sufficient enough to bring down the seat temperature.
