"What exactly is an electric car? How does it work"
An electric car is an automobile that is propelled by one or more electric motors, using electrical energy stored in rechargeable batteries or another energy storage device. Electric motors give electric cars instant torque, creating strong and smooth acceleration. They are also around three times as efficient as cars with an internal combustion engine. Electric cars are significantly quieter than conventional internal combustion engine automobiles.
They do not emit tailpipe pollutants, giving a large reduction of local air pollution, and, can give a significant reduction in total greenhouse gas and other emissions (dependent on the method used for electricity generation). They also provide for independence from foreign oil, which in several countries is cause for concern about vulnerability to oil price volatility and supply disruption. As of September 2015, there are over 30 models of highway legal all-electric passenger cars and utility vans available for retail sales, mainly in the United States, China, Japan, and Western European countries.
By mid-September 2015, about 620,000 light-duty electric vehicles have been sold worldwide out of total global sales of one million plug-in electric cars sold since 2008. The world's top selling highway-capable electric car ever is the Nissan Leaf, released in December 2010, with almost 220,000 units sold worldwide by mid-April 2016. The Tesla Model S, released in June 2012, ranks second with global sales of about 120,000 units through March 2016. This industry is clearly growing at an advanced rate. Which for us is a good thing. People are ready to change. The world is ready to change.
