Abstract Multi-antenna geometries are able to improve the performance of mobile communication systems in terms of capacity. Especially, vehicular communications are an emerging field in the context of 5G and the implementation of MIMO configurations for automotive applications requires to consider a realistic propagation environment. This work investigates the electromagnetic channel model for an urban scenario based on the achievable capacity, proposing different antenna geometries and analyzing them mounted on the vehicle. As radiating element, an UWB 3D monopole is proposed, properly designed to operate from below 2 GHz up to K band, whereas this work will focus on the lowest and most critical frequencies. In particular, 3.6 and 5.9 GHz bands will be compared regarding their performance for an urban V2I environment.
