The paper deals with the model based systems engineering (MBSE) approach, focused on the designing process of propulsion systems for road electric vehicles. In particular, the paper adopts multi-domain Modelling, in accordance with a top-down approach. The process, in fact, starts from the main requirement analysis of the road electric vehicle which is considered as reference. Then, a wide range of parameters, related to the characteristics of propulsion system components and resistance forces, are evaluated to build a parametric model of the propulsion system running on a road. In this way, a procedure for the evaluation of vehicle performance is accomplished within the developed simulation environment. Therefore, the procedure allows all the requirements to be satisfied, under different operative conditions, through an iterative procedure of verification for the imposed parameters. The tested operative conditions are represented in this paper by standard driving cycles, expressed in terms of vehicle speed and autonomy requirement.
