What is an electric car and how does it work?
Electric cars operate using an electric motor instead of an internal combustion engine. You may have heard of the term BEV, which stands for a Battery Electric Vehicle, or EV which stands for Electric Vehicle. Differently to petrol or diesel cars, electric cars need to be plugged in to a source of electricity in order to run, which you can do at home, at work or at a public charging station. Another key difference to combustion cars is that electric motors produce virtually no sound at all, creating a relaxing aura inside the car. Even though the engine is more quiet, this doesn’t mean reduced performance - electric cars produce maximum torque right from a standing start, so you can enjoy instant acceleration and a totally new driving dynamic.
