This paper proposes an implementation of Solar/Electric/Reduced Fuel consumption(IC Engine) Hybrid Po-wered Vehicle (SEFPHV) technology which is the combination of multi sources. The Vehicle will run with help of solar power, electric power and less amount of fuel energy used to charge the batteries and to drive. Rechargeable batteries are used to drive the BLDC motor into vehicle. Batteries are charged with the help of solar power, plug-in and altered IC En-gine with generator. In sunny days, solar panel is used to charge the batteries. Inspite of using IC engines very less amount of fuel energy is used to charge the battery in rainy seasons. This multi charging vehicle can charge itself from both solar power, altered IC Engine with generator and plug in. For controlling speed of the motor, a switch was designed with two tapping, giving different values of resistance at each tapping. The performance of the SEFPHV was found to be satisfactory for the load of two people with the average speed of 45-50 KM/hr to a mileage of 60 KM with reduced charges. Simulation and Experimental results shows that the performance of SEFPHV to confirm the theoretical analysis and their control schemes has been analyzed and validated.
