The present paper introduces an integrated method for a performance analysis of the hybrid electric vehicles. This method takes into consideration a set of parameters that influence the system performance. The research is based on Matlab modeling and Hardware in the Loop approach. The value added is given by the accuracy of the model that is part of the simulation together with the presented performance analysis methods. A set of 42 case studies are proposed and the efficiency of the method is tested through a series of simulation results. The motivation of the research is given by the fact that the automotive sector is in a continuous change, and in the last years the trend is towards electric vehicles. The advantage of this method is that the systems performance can be validated to a large extent from an early stage. The results can contribute to the practical need of developing hybrid and electric vehicles at higher quality standards, faster and with a better cost.
