Abstract: As a result of excessive air pollution caused from the vehicles the automobile industry is shifting its focus from traditional I.C. engine powered vehicle to electrically propelled vehicles. Although this shift is eco friendly when compared, it has its demerits too. Among these the range of an EV is preeminent. This research paper counters this downside of the EV by focusing on the depletion rate of the batteries, used to power the vehicle. Renewable energies like- Solar Energy & Wind Energy are used as the chief form of alternate energies by which power can be generated and connected with EV in order to help sustain and reduce the depletion rate of batteries. Along with these energies we can also use different technologies such as-Regenerative Braking, piezoelectric suspension system, etc. for reducing the depletion rate. These technologies can also be directly used for powering the secondary units such as headlights, horn, indicators, etc. This research paper revolves around this core idea and also to backhand this research we have fabricated a basic EV along with Solar & Wind module, namely the MAE-Car (Multiple Alternative Energy Car).
