Least cost powertrain modelling

For a given vehicle specification, what is the least cost powertrain configuration?

Will it be with multiple motors? Permanent magnet or induction machines?

1 speed or 2 speed? Will a SiC based controller reduce costs?

YASA’s genetic simulation tools are used to inform OEM choices for BEV powertrain. Tim Wollmer’s presentation from the Aachen Colloquium 2019 is illustrated with examples including a possible 14% energy reduction saving over €2000 in one scenario.
