An electric vehicle is a motor vehicle propelled by one or more electric motors using electric power stored in batteries, which then projects the power for the electric motor vehicle drive train.
The first electric cars appeared in the 1880s, electric cars were popular in the 20th century and early 19th century until the common combustion engines for mass production and gasoline were made it was cheaper to use than electric.
During the 1970s and 1980s, the energy crisis hit the electric vehicle stopped in their tracks.
Fast forward to 2008 when a revival in manufacturing electric vehicles occurred due to advances in technology battery power, management of technology and concerns about rising oil prices and not to mention the need to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases.
Since 2008 tax breaks many governments, local authorities and countries have tax incentives and government subsidies to help the electric vehicle market to grow and reduce foregoing, in an effort to reduce the greenhouse effect and CO2 emissions.
The advantages of electric cars
There are many advantages for electric cars, a significant decrease in air pollution because no pollutants in the exhaust gases, is of significant importance. greenhouse gases and other emissions are reduced greatly as in the case in the range of BMW BMW build these cars with eco-components as much as possible and factory units are reducing solar and fossil footprint carbon through the commencement of the production phase.
The other advantages of electric cars in 2014 we now have a new kid on the block in Tesla Motors, pure electric cars have a range of up to 300 miles per charge. Tesla’s patent licenses its technology to other giants of the automotive industry to try to push and reach a wider range of all new electric cars.
Other benefits are tax free circulation and £ 5,000 grant by the government for a new electric car. Also, if you live in the UK and travels an average of 720 miles a week it will cost, from November 2014, 27 pounds, now it has to be an advantage.
(Hybrid) plug-in electric cars
While most demand in the 21st century is the plug-in electric car that these vehicles have better range and are more practical for the average entrepreneur who must travel more than 100 miles a day. Furthermore, due to the concern of the most famous beach in the production of plug-in electric car has been driven since the start of 2008.
However, from 2010 a new dawn appeared with cars like the Chevrolet Volt, Vauxhall Ampera, Mitsubishi Outlander in 2014 and the BMW i3 extension in 2013. These cars took the size of the electric car and generally had an engine working capacity small as a generator to keep the battery charged, which ultimately gives greater scope.
Another advantage of plug-in electric cars is that you can now get 290 miles per gallon, which, as we know from the price at the pump, since November 2014, a gallon of gasoline would cost £ 6.00 in passing mark. So as we can see that this is a huge reason to go buy a plug-in hybrid car.
Plug-in charging and pure electric cars
It is very easy these days with the ability to upload from your own home also compressors throughout the UK and other cargo facilities throughout the UK. In 2020, the European Union said the UK should have a minimum of 60,000 points for recharging electric cars, given that it is only six years we will be in good hands loading the car at any time, no matter where you live in the UK in 2014.
Therefore, the places can be;
A home charger discreetly placed in one of its outer walls, a shed or garage.
In a charging station across the road network in the UK, in supermarkets, gas stations Tesla overeating, fire stations, other public places in Park-and-ride, airports and other places that can be adapted to one.
These chargers are dependent on the power unit, a charge can last from 30 minutes to 8 hours to fully charge the car, however, the average time to load a pure electric car today is on the floor up to 4 hours in many cases . If you travel less than 100 miles a day and sleep four to eight hours a night, you can have a fully charged without having to go to a gas station again and wasting time on the car bomb.
With a plug-in hybrid, is almost the same, but you can obviously much traveling over 100 miles per day, in fact, you can navigate to 1000 these vehicles do not depend on being connected to a power unit.
