Abstract— Electric vehicles and hybrid electric vehicles are practical solutions to solve increasing global energy demand and environmental problems. The paper describes the design of an electric bus based on a conventional bus. According to the vehicle performance index, the parameters of the designed electric vehicle were calculated and configurated. The AVL CRUISE flatform was used to simulate and analyze the vehicle performance based on the New European Driving Cycle and Japan mode 1 Urban cycle. The simulation results reveal that the designed vehicle has good dynamic performance and economic performance.
