Drivetrain is one of the most important systems in every vehicle operations. Due to the increase of fuel prices and stricter regulation on vehicle emission, the need for a better efficient drivetrain had arisen. This research paper presents about the modeling, and analysis of an advance drivetrain system for a small city car concept. This research is conducted by developing a drivetrain model that consists of advanced features such as cylinder deactivation and thermoelectric energy recovery (TEG) module. The model is developed by using ‘Forward Looking Model’ concept in Matlab and simulation is conducted in Simulink by using selected urban drive cycle profiles (UDDS). Analysis of the simulation result is based on two performance evaluations. A) The amount of fuel consumed by the vehicle (best fuel consumption). b) The amount of emission released by the vehicle (low emission figures). In conclusion, it is postulated that this research could offer a mean of information and ideas on developing a better fuel efficient drivetrain for vehicle in the future.
