The objective of this thesis is to optimise, to improve, the dynamic capabilities of an existing tilting three wheel electric vehicle. This vehicle is called the E-Snake and is a creation of the University of Padova. Intended to provide a solution for the mobility necessities in a sustainable way, it gets that goal and also achieves to combine the safety of a 4 wheel vehicle and the manoeuvrability of a 2 wheel vehicle with only 3 wheels. The current specifications of the vehicle where developed to make it competitive at the FEHI (Formula Electric and Hybrid Italy), a contest organized by ATA (Asociazione Tecnica dell’Automobile) for electric and hybrid vehicles developed by universities teams. Due to this, its dynamic characteristics doesn’t make it specially prepared for sub urban and urban mobility necessities which is the main requirement for the new specifications. So, it becomes necessary an improvement of some characteristics, specially the maximum reachable speed, since with the current configuration it’s only capable of getting about 50 km/h. This thesis seeks to be a first approximation to this challenge and it has been pointed to the research for other type of components for the traction system, including the motors. It pretends to be an orientation paper for future and more specific works on this issue. It is based in a research over the market of the components of the traction system and in later calculations of these components to check their viability for the vehicle.
