Engines fail to adhere to the current environmental norms. Hence, advancement in electric vehicle technology becomes an absolute necessity. In addition to high costs, the short driving range of electric vehicles makes it less viable for consumer applications. Due to this reason, we have mathematically modeled an electric vehicle in order to implement a parallel regenerative braking strategy. The controller of choice is a fuzzy logic controller (FLC). The adopted strategy has increased efficiency and driving range of the vehicle while taking into consideration the safety of the rider.
