Abstract:

 In the present scenario Global warming, decrement in conventional fossil fuels directing the researchers to an alternate to the transportation using electrical energy. This paper presents different types of electric vehicles hybrid electric vehicles (HEV), plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV), fuel cell electric vehicles (FHEV) and battery electric vehicle (BEV) based on the configuration of connecting electric propulsion system with or without the conventional IC engine and also the motors which are suitable for various traction applications. In fact this paper also aims to provide information of electric mobility, motors, battery system, advantages and disadvantages of electric vehicles. The methodology used in this paper is descriptive.
