What is electric car?

Recently, electric vehicles are becoming more popular, especially among people who care about the environmental situation. Electric car is a car that is not driven by an internal combustion engine, but one or more electric motors, powered by batteries or fuel cells. There are a lot of invented electric models at the moment, all of them are different. They differ from each other by the number of seats, exterior design, size, the amount of time spent on a battery charge and distance run. Electric cars produce no emissions and noise, they are easy to use and very economical in maintenance. Electric vehicles are currently manufactured to be reliable and durable, even simply due to the fact that, unlike gasoline cars, they are not composed of such a large number of components capable to break.

History of electric cars

In the understanding of modern man electric car is a car of the future, so we can see that all the "self-respect" automotive corporations seek to develop and produce several models of electric vehicles, which in the future will completely replace gasoline counterparts. But, oddly enough, the idea of electric vehicles dates back to the 19th century. Moreover, there is evidence that electric car was created even before the car with a combustion engine. Surprised? The first electric car was created in 1841! It was just a truck with an electric motor. But this kind of transport was not received because of the short-time battery charging, so there appeared gasoline cars, the owners of which are most of us. But electric cars did not disappear; they were used as a local means of transportation on facilities, parks and golf clubs. It was only in 1960, when mankind began to think seriously about the environmental situation on the planet, as well as due to the energy crisis, scientists have resumed development of electric cars as a worthy replacement for vehicles with internal combustion engines. And it is at the present time, when there were great opportunities in the field of energy storage, more humanity thinks about the constant use of electric vehicles (including intercity transport), electric scooters, electric bicycles and other types of electric vehicles.

Advantages and disadvantages of electric vehicles

Perhaps the most important advantage of electric vehicles is the complete absence of exhaust gases that could cause great harm to the environment and its inhabitants. That is why electric cars are considered to be ecological type of vehicles. Operation of electric car is very cheap, since electricity is much cheaper than fuel, and also because of the absence of an internal combustion engine, so there is almost nothing to break in this car. Thus a fairly long life without constant and costly maintenance is guaranteed. Motor efficiency is nearly 2-3 times higher than gasoline analogs. Electric cars are the safest means of transport, because they have a very low risk of explosion in the road accident. Electric cars can be charged from a conventional wall outlet and can make a way in 150 km (and some electric cars even more) without recharging. But, like everything else in the world, electric cars also have their drawbacks. Electric vehicles have a very high price because expensive metals are used in the production of its main elements of the battery. In addition, charge of these batteries takes a very long time (up to 8 hours), giving the priority to gasoline vehicles, refueling of which lasts no more than five minutes. With the introduction of electric vehicles into the mass use some serious problems with the disposal of batteries may appear, because they consist of harmful ingredients and acids, as well as there will be problems with the supply of electricity and overloading of electrical networks with a constant mass load for charging electric vehicles.

Modern electric cars

Nowadays, many automotive corporations engaged in the production of its own models of electric vehicles, special attention is paid to the creation of advanced battery technology for charging which will require a small amount of time. Modern electric cars can gather speed to 515 km / h (Venturi Jamais Contente) and pass 1,003 km without recharging (Daihatsu Mira electric). This means that the cars of the future still have potential for development. World concerns record a large number of patents for the production of electric vehicles including such well-known corporations, such as Toyota, Nissan, and Honda. Not far behind is Tesla Motors, which finally gave birth to a new electric model Model S sedan. Ford plant also began production of the Focus Electric. Famous company General Motors sold its first Chervrolet Volt - plug-in hybrid or electric vehicle with extended range. Renault has also launched the production of a variety of electric vehicles to suit every taste: the compact Twizy and Zoe, stylish sedan Fluence and commercial Kangoo Express van. For several years, China has successfully produced Chery electric cars. A compact Mitsubishi i MiEV is produced since last year in Japan. There are reports that in 2-3 years BMW, Mercedes, Smart, Volvo and, of course, Volkswagen will join the list of electric models. As you can see, the electric becomes a mass phenomenon, and if, thanks to the latest technology electric cars will become cheaper, then this part of comfortable and eco-friendly near future will touch you.
