Electric Powered Cars? How ComeThey Are So Cool?



Aren't They Ugly And Slow?

Electric Powered Cars or EV for short and very simply, this is a car with electric motor(s) driving it.

These motors can be a single DC motor in the case of the Chevy Volt or the Tesla or multiple wheel mounted motors as seen in the Eliica.

And small gasoline generator motors can be used to extend the range of electric cars, making them very popular and cheaper than gas cars to run, with a performance enhancement from the electric motor...

The electricity that drives the motor via the controller comes from battery packs, and they can include lead acid, Nickel metal hydride, or Lithium Ion...

Although Lithium Ion is becoming the standard battery type because of lighter weight, and high power output...

This electricity can be stored in the batteries for use later by the motor to drive the car...

The first cars were electric driven and they were very popular at the turn of the 18th century because they were quiet, simple, and could be charged up overnight...

Power in an electric motor is supplied along with full torque or turning force, making them potentially better than gas powered cars in performance...

Newer technologies of storing electrical charges include Super Capacitors, which promise to do away with batteries altogether...

Electric Cars have a number of advantages... Less maintenance, simple design, zero pollution in use, are easy to operate and control, provide great improvements in performance over gas cars, are smoother and quieter....

And they are cool...
