Numerical prediction method in vehicle by using a thermoregulation model and CFD is described here. To achieve energy efficient car, not only improving efficiency of components like engineand compressor, but also reduction of cooling and heating load are very efficient. In this paper component to evaluate indoor thermal environment like automobile is described on recent our research results. All latest components are not combined yet perfectly. However, a thermoregulation model (65MN) combined with radiation exchange model and Computational Fluid Dynamics is mentioned. The transmissive and reflective performance of the glass according to the radiation sources are also discussed for the accurate evaluation of the solar radiation through the glass window.
