Everything about EVs


An electric vehicle (EV) has a sufficiently large battery while sporting an electric motor that is powerful enough to deliver long-range driving capability and performance without even needing a gas tank or engine. Reducing CO2 emissions by going fully electric is one way to can lessen our impact on the environment. Zero tailpipe emissions.

Plug-in Hybrid

A plug-in hybrid vehicle (PHEV) is a gasoline-powered hybrid with a noticeably larger battery and has the capability to recharge it using an external power source. When the battery has charged, it behaves similar to an electric car but the engine fires up. When the battery begins to get low. It also uses regenerative braking to save fuel.


A hybrid is a 100% gasoline-fueled vehicle that does not rely entirely on its gas engine for propulsion. Hybrids have electric motors that will sometimes work in tandem with the engine to save fuel. Methods of regenerative braking are used to help you accelerate the next time your car is at a complete stop.

Fuel Cell

Like all electric vehicles, fuel cell vehicles use electricity to power an electric motor. The difference is that fuel cell EVs produce electricity using hydrogen instead of solely relying on a battery. Creating a true zero-emission vehicle.

Battery Life

The average electric car battery will last between 10 and 20 years before needing to be replaced. Most manufacturers offer a 10-year/100,000-mile warranty. The life capacity of your battery depends on how it is treated and cared for.

Here are a few ways to help prolong the lifespan of your battery:

  • The range of the battery can be sensitive to extreme temperatures. Trying to limit exposure to very hot or cold temperatures for sustained periods of time will help the battery last longer.
  • Try to never let the battery completely run out of juice. Keeping the range of the battery between 20% and 80% will help with efficiency.
  • Preventing the battery from being charged too frequently or for too long will also help prolong the life expectancy.

Battery performance, life expectancy, and charge rate can vary depending on any of the following:

  • The type of electric car charger.
  • The type of car battery being used.
  • The brand and/or the model of the vehicle.
  • How the battery is maintained over time.
  • The climate the vehicle is subject to enduring.
  • General maintenance of the vehicle.
