Electric Vehicles

Published March 18th, 2015 by Mowenllc

All-electric vehicles (EVs) run on electricity only. They are propelled by an electric motor  powered by rechargeable battery packs. Electric vehicles convert about 59–62% of the electrical energy from the grid to power at the wheels—conventional gasoline vehicles only convert about 17–21% of the energy stored in gasoline to power at the wheels. Also, EVs emit no tailpipe pollutants. Electric motors provide quiet, smooth operation and stronger acceleration and require less maintenance than conventional vehicles.
