Fuel consumption continues to rise will cause serious problems in the future due to the limited amount of fossil fuels on earth. In addition, emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) and carbon monoxide (CO), which is the burning of oil is very influential on global warming today. Therefore, the development of friendly technologies (green energy industry) has been started. One is the development of environmentally friendly vehicles (green vehicle) in which the battery is an energy source that pollution from vehicles is equal to zero. The design of optimal power train mechanism on electric vehicles is one of the best ways to save battery energy consumption. Transmission is one of the power trains is very influential on the performance of the vehicle. In this paper will discuss electric vehicle transmission system. There are some major things that the reference design of the transmission that will be done is the first that the large wheel traction should have the same value as the traction conventional vehicles, and the second is the transmission model should be much simpler than the transmission of the motor fuel to meet the criteria for the use of the electric motor of the vehicle. Synchromesh is one of the constituent elements of the transmission which serves to smooth gearshift so that there is increased driving comfort. Further development synchromesh transmission is done to get a more simple construction, easily manufactured, and ease of use. Zero shift transmission is the latest development in transmission and then developed into an automatic manual transmission (AMT), where transmission has been used on racing vehicles to eliminate the current slowdown gear shift. Zero shift transmission is still relying on the clutch to change gear in which electromechanical be used to replace the clutch pedal. Therefore, the transmission is considered to be too complex for the transmission of electric vehicles, but its mechanism is considered very appropriate to increase the transmission efficiency. Starting from the transmission is then carried out new innovations transmission design for electric cars. The combination synchromesh with zero shift mechanism for manual transmission is a transmission which is ideal to increase the transmission efficiency. Installation synchromesh on zero shift mechanism is expected to replace the function of the clutch Manual Transmission (MT), and assisted with the motor torque setting when to change gear. This study displays a performance analysis of the electric vehicle transmissions.
