dc.description.abstractRecent trends show that consumers are shifting away from individually owned personal vehicles, and towards shared mobility solutions. Those who do own a vehicle are opting for those that are more fuel efficient and environmentally friendly. This thesis examines the design and vehicle development process of a shared semi-autonomous hybrid electric SUV to be deployed in a carsharing application, effectively addressing both established trends within the automotive industry and personalized transportation. The thesis directs the reader through each step of the vehicle design process starting with Target Market analysis, Component sizing, selection, and layout, and powertrain modeling and optimization, while highlighting how the primary design objective of fuel economy maximization guided the overall vehicle design. Ultimately, this thesis aims to serve as a reference and knowledge transfer document to be used by members of the University of Waterloo Alternative Fuels Team as it pertains directly to the design of Energy Storage System utilized in the development vehicle, and therefore should be read by those involved with the project.en
