The electric car is one of the technological wonders of the century. It has challenged the way we look at cars and is able to apply ordinary technology to offer owners a new way of driving and owning a vehicle. Humans have long relied on the internal combustion engine for all of their automotive needs. This primarily gasoline-powered engine dominated the automotive world until recently.
In these few years, the trend has changed. Now people are looking for electric cars. The reason is simple – they want a cheaper way to drive. No more expensive petrol. Some also want a cleaner car – one that produces less smoke.
The electric car has all the parts of a regular petrol car, except for one thing – it doesn’t have an internal combustion engine. That means no gas. Instead of a petrol engine, it has a motor that powers it. This motor runs on batteries. The batteries are powered by arranging them in a row and then combining their powers to create enough electricity for the car to move. If the car moves, the performance is sued. The batteries can be recharged after the car has driven a few kilometers.
In contrast to conventional vehicles, the battery does not have to be recharged as often. It can last the car up to about 1200 miles before it needs charging. For city trips, this can take about a week or two.
Today, electric cars can go about 90 miles per hour; They are comparable to any mid-size sedan you can find. Over time this speed will increase and the batteries will last longer.
