Abstract: As the Super Capacitors have Higher Specific power density, longer life time and safer operation when compared with any other energy source in Electric Vehicles, thus have more attention in the present market. Thus presently Super Capacitors are used to act as intermittent source. This study would deal with the performance analysis of Electric Vehicles by adopting Super Capacitor as the only Energy source without any Backup. The SC can charge and discharge at a very faster rate, the time taken for the charge is also equal to the time taken for discharge. Thus the SC will discharge at a very faster rate, in this regard to improve its discharging rate we would like to do certain Design Modifications. The Main objective of this study is to replace the energy source in the EV’s with Super Capacitor Bank which would reduce the weight, Maintenance, and increase the performance of EV’s in a long run.
