Generic four door sedan cutaway technical illustration.
Full cutaway car.
Generic full vehicle cutaway and ghosted car, all systems shown. If car companies had kept up with technology like the computer industry has, we would all be driving $50 cars that got 750 miles to the gallon. Engine, suspension seats, shocks, brakes, gas tank, drive belts, drive shafts, supplemental restraints, electrical system.
Vehicle Sensors
Vehicle sensor placement in a cutaway vehicle. Vehicle Sensors. Just a diagram showing some of the sensors that keep an eye out for you while you can do something such as text somebody, shave, put your makeup on, watch a video, anything but pay attention to your driving. technical cutaway info graphic illustration.
Vehicle Unit Body
Car interior structure. Cutaway automotive illustration. Vehicle interior structure, safety cages, side door beams, seat structure and subframes. Crumple zones are designed to absorb the energy from the impact during a traffic collision by controlled deformation. Hopefully keeping the sharp bits from the soft bits.
Car Interior.
Car cutaway to show the interior.
Vehicle Suspension and Braking.
Car suspension and brake system. Cutaway technical automotive illustration. Brakes, shocks, sub frames ,springs and brake lines.
CNG Powered vehicle.
Compressed Natural Gas vehicle illustration. Compressed Natural Gas Vehicle. Natural gas vehicles (NGVs), which can run on compressed natural gas (CNG). Natural gas vehicles should not be confused with vehicles powered by propane (LPG), which is a fuel with a fundamentally different composition. Existing gasoline-powered vehicles may be converted to run on CNG or LNG. Automotive technical cutaway illustration.
Electrical Assist vehicle.
Electrical vehicle assist, automotive cutaway illustration. Electric Motor Assist Hybrid Car. In a parallel hybrid car, a gasoline engine and an electric motor work together to move the car forward, while in a series hybrid the gasoline engine either directly powers an electric motor that powers the vehicle or charges batteries that will power the motor. Automotive cutaway illustration.
Car Suspension and Driveline.
Car suspension and driveline cutaway automotive technical illustration. Vehicle suspension and driveline. Driveline is everything in the drivetrain, less the engine and the transmission. Suspension is the system of tires, springs, shock absorbers and linkages that connects a vehicle to its wheels and allows relative motion between the two. Automotive cutaway illustration.

Hydrogen Powered Vehicle.
Hydrogen powered car, automotive illustration. Hydrogen powered vehicle. A fuel cell, which converts hydrogen to electricity, giving off only heat and water as byproducts. Hydrogen fuel does not occur naturally on Earth and therefore is not an energy source, it is an energy carrier. Hydrogen is also highly flammable. technical cutaway car.
Car exhaust System.
Vehicle exhaust system illustration. Vehicle fuel system, what goes in better get out as quickly as possible. An exhaust system is piping used to guide reaction exhaust gases away from a controlled combustion inside an engine. The entire system conveys burnt gases from the engine and includes one or more exhaust pipes. Cutaway automotive technical illustration.
Car Satellite Conectivity
Vehicle satellite connectivity technical illustration. Vehicle Satellite Connectivity. Communications, in-vehicle security, hands free calling, turn-by-turn navigation, and remote diagnostics systems. Automotive technical cutaway illustration.
Integrated Motor Assist vehicle.
Integrated Motor Assist, cutaway car. Integrated Motor Assist. (commonly abbreviated as IMA) The use of an electric motor mounted between the internal combustion engine and transmission to act as a starter motor, engine balancer, and assist traction motor. Energy that used to be wasted when applying brakes is captured and stored as electric power. When the car accelerates, the stored energy is released, helping vehicle performance and cutting down on fuel consumption. Technical car cutaway.
Vehicle Sheet Metal.
Car sheet metal illustration. Car sheet metal, the reason for those expensive monthly payments. Automotive exterior technical illustration.
Vehicle Air Suspension System.
Car air suspension system, technical illustration. Air suspension is one type of vehicle suspension that is powered by an electric or engine-driven air pump or compressor. This compressor pumps the air into a flexible bellows, usually made from textile-reinforced rubber, better if there is a storage tank. The air pressure inflates the bellows, and raises the chassis from the axle. But it's a lot more fun than that, especially with a large storage tank and large dia. tubing. Technical automotive illustration. Cutaway vehicle.
Vehicle Electrical System.
Car electrical system, cutaway automotive technical illustration. Car electrical System. An electrical system consists of the battery, starter and alternator. The battery provides juice to the starter. Then, the alternator gives that battery the energy it needs to power your car. But its not quite as simple as that. Lucas the Prince of Darkness, just for the English.
