Summary
The project assessed the impact of a solar reflective windshield and backlite on plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) range and fuel economy. The effect of Sungate® EP on PHEV performance was evaluated on NREL's PHEV test bed, a 2006 Toyota Prius modified with a 5 kWh Hymotion Li-ion Energy Storage System. The tests, performed at Environmental Testing Corporation in Colorado, used portable electric heaters installed in the passenger compartment to simulate the solar heat gain through the glazings.The UDDS/USO6 composite fuel economy increased 8% from 38.4 mpg to 41.6 mpg due to the reduction in thermal loads from Sungate EP glazings installed in the windshield and backlite. The electrical energy consumption was essentially equivalent with a less than 0.2% increase. Using the Sungate EP resulted in lower A/C compressor power and lower interior cabin air temperature, which would improve occupants' comfort. The lower A/C power improved UDDS/USO6 composite fuel economy
