Electric Vehicle Cabin Design and Battery Cooling

Improve your electric vehicle (EV) driving range without compromising passenger comfort

Electric vehicle designers constantly face a trade-off between passenger comfort, EV range, and battery cost. In fact, in extreme weather conditions, ensuring passenger comfort and safety can reduce the battery range by 40% or more. Even in more reasonable climates, EV’s consume 15% more energy per mile because of hot or cold weather conditions. Dassault Systèmes provides an integrated design and verification process that creates a comfortable environment for the passengers.

This integrated design and verification process effectively ensures passenger comfort, maintains acceptable temperatures for onboard electronics, and keeps the battery cooling temperature within an optimal efficiency range. This process will ensure the desire passenger experience can be achieved while meeting regulatory requirements, maximizing range and achieving target battery life.

A high fidelity transient and 3D simulation model, combined with vehicle level systems integration, is the key to success when designing an electric vehicle. Design, evaluate, and iterate on Electric Vehicle cabin design and battery cooling with confidence, allowing your car to outrun the competition.
