The present article studies the influence of a car heatable windshield by means of an equivalent material that allows an appropriate meshing of the vehicle. This study has been performed analyzing the propagation of an electromagnetic radiated transient pulse generated by a wire inside a car with and without the windshield. The Finite Differences Time Domain (FDTD) is the method used to obtain the field coupled to antennas located inside and outside the car. We concluded that it is important to take into account the heatable windshield to make a suitable electromagnetic model of the vehicle.
