Electric vehicle (EV) is an innovation that is used to overcome the impact of the environment in this 21st century. The details of Electric vehicle must be analyzed in order to understand the pros and cons about the technology. The main component ofan EV is its battery which is called as the green car battery. In this paper, various factors such as the environmental impact analysis of green batteries, comparison between various fuel types, and regional concern are discussed.
