This contribution elaborates the need of a new methodology to introduced Systems Engineering to vehicle concept development. The requirements for such new methodology are derived, addressing the architecture development of vehicles in terms of Systems Engineering to handle interdisciplinary complexity, enable better consistency and traceability. A product model with four views (requirements, functional, logical and physical; RFLP) is presented. It introduces the Vehicle Systems Architecture, which represents the new understanding of architecture development during vehicle concept phase.
