How Electric Vehicles Work

Chris Jones, the Vice President of the Australian Electric Vehicle Association (AEVA) explained to us exactly how electric cars operate.

With Electric vehicles (EVs), there’s no need for motorists to visit a petrol station again. These cars or motorcycles are specifically designed to use a sizable battery pack and an electric motor to store energy.
EVs are truly greener cars. The pure EVs are only powered by batteries, while the PHEVs or plug-in hybrid EVs use a tiny petrol engine that extends the car’s range. Majority of modestly sized electric vehicles use batteries that range from 16 to 24 kWh while a full sized EV like Tesla Model S is fitted with a 60 or 85 kWh battery. The bigger batteries are more effective and you can drive for a long time when you have them. However, one thing to keep in mind is that they are more expensive.
EVs are exactly like how great technology ought to be. The best thing about electric sedans is their maintenance schedules. Rotate the tyres after every 20, 000 km and check the brakes once every year. That’s all!
With EVs, normal just improved to become better! Compared to the standard cars, electric vehicles are simple and highly robust unlike the PHEVs, which have a broad and expensive service schedule with a rather weak onboard petrol engine that requires regular air and oil filter changes.
