The powertrains are having vital role now a days due to fuel economy and less tailpipe emissions. These are helpful in fuel economy and environment friendly architecture development. This research work will provide a helping tool for the elaborated understanding and core mechanical designing of the power transmission device (mechanical coupling) used in hybrid cars, especially in Synergy drives. The device combines the powers, in form of product of angular velocities and torques from various power sources i.e. IC engine and the motors. It is a flexible design tool that can be aided to design any vehicle of any size, power, speed and acceleration. In this paper a small sized vehicle is considered as an example vehicle that can be hybridized using this flexible design tool. The results generated are also verified through software simulations using the advance version of Pro-E i.e. PTC Creo. Then using these results, the motor sizing for the required degree of hybridization is alsorecommended along with the nature of performance curve required by the motor to provide the requireddesign acceleration, speed and power.
