Considering the need to optimize electric vehicle performance and the impact of efficient driveline configurations in achieving this, a brief study has been conducted. The drivelines of electric vehicles (EV) are critically examined in this survey. Also, promising motor topologies for usage in electric vehicles are presented. Additionally, the benefits and drawbacks of each kind of electric motor are examined from a system viewpoint. The majority of commercially available EV are powered by a permanent magnet motor or single induction type motors and a standard mechanical differential driveline. Considering these, a holistic review has been performed by including driveline configurations and different battery types. The authors suggest that motors be evaluated and contrasted using a standardized driving cycle.
