The technology of electric vehicles (EV) is conventionally using battery to operate the motor. However it has one major disadvantage on energy storage capacity. Basically the battery needs to be recharged every day at the charging station which usually takes hours to fully charged. In this paper, the concept of battery charging using the hybrid PV-Wind for electric vehicles energy source is presented. The prototype of photovoltaic (PV) and wind energy harvesting has been developed to overcome this problem in the most effective way. This prototype will harvest the energy from both PV and wind to recharge the battery in electric vehicles so that the car can travel in longer time and distance. Three experiments have been conducted to analyze the best system namely PV system, wind generator system and hybrid PV wind system. Based on the experiment that has been carried out, it can be concluded that the hybrid PV wind system is the best compared to the other two because the current generated by hybrid PV wind is the highest which is 1A compared to 0.51A by PV system and 0.67A by wind system, respectively. The high current value is significantly means that the time taken to fully charge the battery is faster and this will lead to decrease the time used for the charging process.
