As countries seek to address future energy requirements in a rapidly growing and changing world, achieving sustainable transportation has emerged as a vital mission. Electric vehicles (EVs), in particular, represent one of the most promising pathways to increased energy security and reduced emissions of greenhouse gases and other pollutants. In this course, we will review the history of electric vehicles since 1800s, examine their advantages and disadvantages, and discuss main power components and their functions in an electric vehicle. In addition, we will explore the design considerations and trend of the infrastructure for EVs.
