Title:
REAR VEHICLE BODY STRUCTURE FOR VEHICLE
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2023/182135
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
This rear vehicle body structure comprises: a rear floor pan (10) that is provided recessed downward and has a tire well portion (11) capable of storing a spare tire S in the rear; and a rear bumper (30) that is positioned to the vehicle rear of the rear floor pan (10), faces the tire well portion (11) in the vehicle front-rear direction, and has a lower end surface extending in the vehicle front-rear direction, wherein the lower surface of the tire well portion (11) has a rear inclined surface (16) inclining at an upward gradient toward the vehicle rear, and the lower end surface of the rear bumper (30) extends on an extending surface where the rear inclined surface (16) is extended to the vehicle rear. A flow of air passing below a vehicle body (1) is rectified so as to smoothly run up toward the rear along the rear inclined surface (16) and the connected rear bumper (30) from the rear inclined surface (16), which decreases air resistance and improves aerodynamic performance.
