In this paper, we propose that electric vehicle is much more efficient than gasoline vehicles and it can reduce emissions, it is cost effective, and reduces noise pollution and less maintenance cost. Though many electric motors are available, BLDC motor was the most suitable electric motor for electric vehicle due to greater efficiency, its compatible for all speed vehicles. BLDC motor has been selected by considering all the parameters and by comparing with other motors. As BLDC motor has been selected, Hall effect sensors are in this to determine the position of rotor in BLDC motor and control the speed of the motor. In this paper, the basic working principle of Hall-Effect sensors has been explained and the stages of commutation of 3-phase BLDC motor has been described briefly. Different drive systems are available. PWM Inverter based and SEPIC converter based control for drives have been studied.
