Title (EN) STRUCTURE OF HYBRID VEHICLE
(FR) STRUCTURE DE VÉHICULE HYBRIDE
Abstract:
(EN) A structure of a hybrid vehicle includes a battery pack (31) arranged on a floor panel (15) and an exhaust pipe (21) extending from an engine, passing below the floor panel (15), to an exhaust port. The battery pack (31) has a secondary battery (32) constituted by a plurality of battery cells (33) stacked in a vehicle traveling direction for supplying electric power to a motor, and an intake chamber (34) provided adjacent to the secondary battery (32) in a substantially horizontal direction perpendicular to the direction along which the plurality of battery cells (33) are stacked for supplying cooling air between each of the plurality of battery cells (33). The exhaust pipe (21) is provided so that it passes immediately below the battery pack (31) and passes a position displaced from a position immediately below the intake chamber (34). With such a configuration, a structure of a hybrid vehicle that suppresses reduction in the efficiency of cooling a secondary battery without placing a great limit on routing of an exhaust pipe is provided.
(FR) L'invention concerne une structure d'un véhicule hybride comprenant un bloc de batteries (31) agencé sur un panneau de plancher (15) et un tuyau d'échappement (21) s'étendant depuis un moteur, passant sous le panneau de plancher (15), jusqu'à un orifice d'échappement. Le bloc de batteries (31) présente une batterie secondaire (32) constituée d'une pluralité d'éléments de batterie (33) empilés dans un sens de déplacement du véhicule pour l'alimentation en énergie électrique d'un moteur, et une chambre d'admission (34) adjacente à la batterie secondaire (32) dans une direction sensiblement horizontale perpendiculaire à la direction le long de laquelle la pluralité d'éléments de batterie (33) sont empilés pour l'alimentation en air de refroidissement entre chaque élément de la pluralité d'éléments de batterie (33). Le tuyau d'échappement (21) est agencé de sorte qu'il passe immédiatement au-dessous du bloc de batteries (31) et passe par une position déplacée par rapport à une position immédiatement au-dessous de la chambre d'admission (34). Avec ladite configuration, une structure d'un véhicule hybride qui supprime la réduction au niveau de l'efficacité de refroidissement d'une batterie secondaire sans placer de limite importante sur le cheminement d'un tuyau d'échappement est obtenue.
