A new generation of CAD tools is introduced to provide wider range of possible solutions and cost reduction for an (hybrid) electric vehicle designer. The conventional design process starts from the performance criteria and applies them to physical vehicle dynamics. The final result would be strict characteristics of all vehicle components; this scenario gives only one option for the desired vehicle. The ability to select any arbitrary set of variables and solve for the rest, to work with variable ranges not strict values and to have both design and simulation in a single package are advantages of the new tool.
