This paper presents a model aiming at describing the influence of an additional mass on an urban vehicle. The impact of an in-wheel motor on the road holding performances and vehicle comfortableness, for which criteria have been defined, has been studied on a swingarm and compared to a standard configuration (vertical suspension). Simulations have been carried out using Matlab Simulink and a comparison has been made using several obstacles as well as different types of roads.
