Hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) represent a fundamental step in the global evolution towards transportation electrification. Nevertheless, they exhibit a remarkably complex design environment with respect to both traditional internal combustion engine vehicles and battery electric vehicles. Innovative and advanced design tools are therefore crucially required to effectively handle the increased complexity of HEV development processes. This paper aims at providing a comprehensive overview of past and current advancements in HEV powertrain design methodologies. Subsequently, major simplifications and limits of current HEV design methodologies are detailed. The final part of this paper defines research challenges that need accomplishment to develop the next generation HEV architecture design tools. These particularly include the application of multi-fidelity modeling approaches, the embedded design of powertrain architecture and on-board control logic and the endorsement of multi-disciplinary optimization procedures. Resolving these issues may indeed remarkably foster the widespread adoption of HEVs in the global vehicle market.
