This paper intends to present a novel full-vehicle numerical approach for in-wheel and on-board motor Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) powertrain architectures, which overcomes the electrical and mechanical deficits widely present in the current literature. Namely, neglecting of the interaction between mechanical and electrical phenomena and its impact on the vehicle dynamic performance.

A co-simulation approach is employed: whereas the mechanical systems and their interactions are simulated with Adams Car, the electrical phenomena are solved by MATLAB/Simulink. The investigation is conducted over a full throttle maneuver by monitoring a set of performance indicators.
