Because of fossil fuel shortage and its damages on environment, electric vehicles (EV) are going to be more popular in science and car industry as well. So, EV's take an opportunity to spread over the traffic finally. But battery, which is the main energy supplier of the motor, has disadvantages as big volume and weight. Scientists try to enhance energy densities, ranges and quicken charging. All of research results force us to drive EV in a loop, close to charging stations for near future. So EV's should be designed by considering urban road and speed conditions as well. In this survey, we designed a new two pole 7,5 kW induction motor for a certain electric vehicle, which was designed to use urban drive. We considered urban traffic rules and conditions, while designing the motor. We simulated and verified analytical and finite element analysis of the designed induction motor. We also modelled and simulated the EV with the induction motor on MATLAB to observe control performance of field oriented control (FOC) on several urban use scenarios. According to our results, EV with designed motor can be realized and controlled.
