This paper highlights the use of multi-domain physical models for simulation of vehicle drivability applications. The models are implemented using the Vehicle Dynamics Library and Engine Dynamics Library from Modelon. The application examples include vehicle launch; vehicle start-stop; and transmission shift events. The examples are structured to illustrate how increasingly sophisticated models provide additional model fidelity or increase the drivability phenomena observed.
