The Facts About Electric Vehicles (EVs)


EV stands for electric vehicle. The term is used to refer to vehicles that are powered at least partially by electricity, including battery electric vehicles (BEVs), plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) and fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs). EVs can be a great alternative to gasoline-powered cars and trucks, as well as motorcycles, scooters, bicycles and heavy transport vehicles.

Understanding EV: The Basics of Electric Vehicles”

Ev] run on electricity, which can be generated from fossil fuels, nuclear power, renewables or a combination of those sources. They are more efficient than traditional engines, producing fewer emissions throughout the lifecycle of the car. EVs can also be powered by electricity generated from waste heat from the driving process. This is known as regenerative braking, which converts the energy stored in the brakes into electricity that recharges the batteries or directly powers the motors.

Many fleet managers are interested in switching to EVs because they can help reduce operating costs and lower their environmental impact. However, range anxiety is a common concern that has slowed adoption.

It’s important to know how EVs compare with gasoline vehicles in terms of range, maintenance and performance before making the switch. This guide will give you the facts to help dispel myths about EVs and give you confidence in your decision-making process. It will also share advice on how to optimize EV range performance and decrease your ‘range anxiety’ so you can get the most out of your new EV.
