Abstract: Electric vehicles (EV’s) were invented and had been a part of transportation industry before 1900’s. Being popular, they had good turn outs in the market till 1918. As the inventions of internal combustion engines grew in the transportation industry, EV’s usage started to die. The usage of EV’s was totally zero by 1933, due to slow response and high expenses. The shortcomings faced by EV’s then, are not overcome totally till date. Advancement in the field of Microelectronics and power electronics have made EV power trains competitive with ICE power trains. The developments in the materials and manufacturing technologies provide optimistic battery. The vital factors that revive EV’s: cost of energy, energy independency, pollution free operation. The upcoming shortage of fossil fuels, shortage of supply, growing demands and their cost have made people look around for an alternative mode of transportation. As electricity production can be made from different energy resources, EV’s promise to be a future of vehicles. However the recharging can be done when there is excess energy in power utilities. The biggest reason of interest towards EV’s is environmental factors such as reduction in air pollution in congested traffics thereby meeting national energy strategy policies.
