The rechargeable battery is the source of power of the EV. This is what provides the fuel(electricity) to run the electric motor. The EV usually uses more than one battery and this is together referred to as a battery pack. The power capacity of the EV’s is measure in kWh (Kilowatt-hours) and these EV’s are installed under the cabin floor.
The Electric motor is what replaces the complex powertrains of the conventional cars. Usually there is just one motor but the number may also increase to two and sometimes to three or four individual motors for each wheel. These motors are compact in size and therefore offer more space in EV’s. The advantage of the electric motor is that there is immediate torque delivery, its noiseless and provides for a pollution-free performance.
The EV has a controller that is used to regulate the flow power from the battery pack to the motor and therefore the immediate torque may not always be required. The EV calculates the use with the reference to available battery charge and offers the power according to that. This in turn helps the EV open to the various driving modes that are available.
Electric cars are considered expensive because of the cost of the battery. The Cobalt components are electrode components in the battery and this is specifically very expensive. Another reason for why these cars is expensive is that the production architecture is not equipped to mass manufacture the batteries.
An electric car takes anything between 30 minutes to nearly a whole day to fully charge. This also depends on the model, company, weather and how much the battery has already been drained.
The electric cars run on batteries that will require charging which then powers the motor functioning and these EV’s can be easily charged at home.
A fully charged electric car can go up to 100 miles which is about a 160 kms.
Electric cars do come with a few disadvantages. One such disadvantage is that the electricity generated can cause pollution and the manufacturing of these batteries also causes a great deal of pollution too.
A few disadvantages of electric cars are that some EV’s have a short range for driving, the investment on the car can be expensive, fewer choices and the charging takes time.
Currently the cheapest electric car in India is the Tata Tigor EV.
Tesla batteries last for a minimum of 250 miles on a single charge. The longest-range Tesla has run a little bit over 402 miles of range for a full charge.
Electric cars don’t require oil changes.
If the electric car runs out of charge it will simply stop and will be required to be towed. However, the electric car will need to be taken to the nearest charging station.
