The emergence of personal electric vehicle (PEV) in the market place shows huge evolution on the conventional vehicle. The famous PEV in the market nowadays is SEGWAY personal transporter, the price is cheaper than another design made by Toyota, iRoad. This is shows many car manufacturers drastically invested on the research of PEV to expand its potential. The PEV is safe to the environment as its using electricity energy to move and battery to in store the energy. However, the existing PEV still have limitation on the design based on the wheels size and more specifically, the main question addressed what is the torque requirement for the PEV to achieved. Thus, this paper will addressing regarding the wheel technology since wheel id determined to contribute important implication to the movement of PEV, the power requirement and the total torque in different wheel size. to execute the analysis on the parameter setup, the research has been done based on PEV journal and previous research. In addition, the objective of this project is to analyse the effect of wheel size in PEV performance.
