Statement of Research problem
Fossil fuel vehicles have been identified as one of the main causes of some environmental problems, and the global initiatives is to eradicate greenhouse gas emissions. One way of achieving this goal is replacing conventional petrol/diesel vehicles with electric driven vehicles. However, the launch, commercialisation and consumer acceptance of Electric Vehicles (EV) has been hindered by range anxiety. Nevertheless, in taking advantage of newly developed means of energy regeneration with an intelligent energy management system, environmental issues as well as Range-ability issues could be solved with little or no additional cost.

Background to the research problem
Range anxiety is the fear that a vehicle battery has insufficient power to cover the range of its destination and would thus strand the vehicle's occupants (Tate,Harpster,&Savagian,2008).This term, range anxiety, which is primarily used in reference to Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs), is considered to be the major barrier to the large scale adoption of all-electric cars(Parsons, 2011). As a result there has been significantly good procedures which have been implemented in an attempt to reduce range anxiety. They are:

The deployment of extensive charging infrastructure
The idea behind this technology was to construct recharging stations that would emulate the normal petrol filling station.

Battery swapping technology
Battery swapping allows electric cars to extend their range through replacing their batteries at a battery switch station.

Hybrid Electric Vehicle Concept (HEV)
Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs) are a cross between an Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) automobile and an electric vehicle. They combine an electric drive-t...
