What are the different kinds of electric cars?
Electric vehicles come in a variety of forms (EV). Pure electric vehicles, as the name suggests, run entirely on electricity. Hybrid electric vehicles, on the other hand, may run on both gasoline and diesel.
- Plug-in electric – A plug-in electric vehicle is one that runs entirely on electricity and receives all of its power when it is plugged in to charge. This type of vehicle does not require gasoline or diesel to operate, and thus does not emit any pollutants like traditional cars.
- Plug-in hybrid – These cars run primarily on electricity, but they also have a traditional fuel engine that allows them to run on gasoline or diesel if the battery runs out. These cars emit emissions when they operate on gasoline, but they don’t emit them when they run on electricity. -To recharge their battery, plug-in hybrids can be connected into an electrical outlet.
- Hybrid-electric – These vehicles run primarily on gasoline or diesel, but they also feature an electric battery that is recharged by regenerative braking. At the touch of a button, you can switch from using your internal combustion engine to ‘EV’ mode. These cars are unable to be charged by electricity and must rely on gasoline or diesel to operate.
What constitutes an electric vehicle’s internal components?
Compared to an ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) vehicle, EVs have 90% fewer moving parts. The components that keep an electric vehicle going are as follows:
