Electric Vehicles (EV)

EV’s are being discussed everywhere in the media at the moment. This is a fast moving industry with new products and technologies appearing every day. Electric Vehicles emit less pollution than petrol driven vehicles, so they are a good solution to solve the problem in reducing carbon emission in transport. The UK want to be emission free by 2040 and Electric cars areone way to meet this target.

Basically, an engine which uses a fuel cell are electric vehicles and this technology is becoming a really important innovation nowadays.

An electric car uses the electromotive force from the electric motor to drive. This motor receives the necessary energy thanks to a battery or others devices. An EV is known to have a better acceleration than a vehicle which uses the power of oil, but the autonomy is shorter. They usually require daily charging times, or at intervals when used at long distances at a local EV charging point.

An electric car works without emitting gas or noise. That is why it could be a good solution to reduce the transport’s environmental footprint.

 

There are three types of EV:

The most common kind of EV is the second type, with batteries to store the energy from another source. The electric motor receives power from a controller, which changes the power sent to the motor as a function of the driver action on the acceleration pedal. The electric vehicle uses the batteries’ energy which are recharged by household electricity.

The batteries capacity is from 15 to 200kWh. With this range, the electric car could work between 100km to 300km. This number depends of the driving type (use of lights, heat, big accelerations, etc).

To charge the EV batteries you need an external source of electricity. For that, you can use an electric vehicle charging point.

There are four modes to charge your electric car:
