What is an electric vehicle?
An electric vehicle is operated with electrical energy, preferably provided by a renewable energy source (ie. wind, solar, hydro) as to be truly environmentally and climate friendly. The “drive” energy is contained in a rechargeable battery back. Besides cars there are other vehicles that use electricity on a trolley (ie. street cars, city buses) or a tow line (ie. the mining industry). There are also vehicles that create their own power for their electric motors such as solar powered cars with solar cells as well as hybrid vehicles or fuel cell vehicles using alternative fuel sources for primary energy.
What are the advantages of electric vehicles?
Advantages are high efficiency, a simpler structure of the drive train and low noise pollution. As electric cars are “fueled” with electricity from renewable energy resources they are largely CO2 neutral.
