Electric cars are here...

It’s no secret that we’re moving towards an all-electric future when it comes to the world of automotive, with manufacturers aiming to fill their car ranges with fully electric vehicles come 2030.

Despite their fairly conventional exteriors, electric vehicles are much less conventional underneath, with EVs propelling themselves exclusively with electric power.

While some may feel anxious about the future of motoring, electric cars offer many benefits for drivers, as well as for the environment. The ability to charge our vehicles at home, and for much less than it would cost to fuel them up, being a key advantage.

How do electric cars work?

Instead of an internal combustion engine (ICE), all-electric cars are powered by energy from a battery, usually stored in the floor of the vehicle.

The energy the battery stores is distributed to - and converted into power by - an electric motor which in turn drives the wheels of the vehicle.

Another major difference between an EV and ICE vehicles is the distribution of that power - thanks to the torque created by the electric motor, there is no geared transmission in an electric car and is effectively a single-speed vehicle with no gear changes required.

Of course, to get this power, the car no longer requires fuel such as petrol or diesel, but instead needs to be charged. The great advantage to this is that we need not leave our homes to do this, as EVs can be charged through a wallbox unit or even through a conventional three-pin plug. On the go, though, you’ll need to find a charging point to replenish your vehicle’s battery - find out more about charging your EV on our Blog.
