Short summary
Based on a vehicle emission inventory with high temporal–spatial resolution established by bottom-up methodology, this paper evaluates the performance of the CUACE model and investigates the vehicle emission contribution (VEC) to ambient NO2 and PM2.5 with an emission source sensitivity method. With good performance of pollutant concentrations, numerical simulation revealed that the mean VEC is 55.4 and 48.5 % for NO2 and 5.4 and 10.5 % for PM2.5 in July and December 2013 respectively.
