An EV is an abbreviation for an electric vehicle. Electric vehicles are vehicles that are either fully or partially powered on electricity. There are two general types of EV's; hybrid and full-electric. Electric vehicles also have low running expenses since they have few moving parts to maintain and also very environment friendly as they consume very little or no gasoline (petrol or natural gas) at all. These advantages have led to an increase in the number of these vehicles on the road.

The price of electric vehicles has fallen significantly over the past few years. Many of the first EV's were outrageously priced when they were first released, but now most major auto manufacturers have EV models which are reasonable in price. Although they still cost more than gas-powered vehicles, they represent a great deal of savings in the long run. They also represent an excellent way to "go green" and to contribute to the fight against global warming and to help save the planet.

The general concept of an EV is pretty simple. The body of the car is typically composed of a lightweight aluminum body frame with a lightweight electric motor driving the front wheels. The rest of the vehicle is made up of a series of small, rechargeable batteries that store the power needed to power the electric motors and other components, including the air conditioning system. A series of motorized fans also cools the interiors of the vehicle. All the electrical components of an EV are connected in series to power a series of wheels, which act as the transmission.

Conversion of Ordinary Vehicle to Electric Vechicle

The process of converting an ordinary car into an EV starts by removing the gas engine and removing the oil pump. Next, the car is disassembled and the motor is mounted in a box that is called a conversion kit. The conversion kit includes the motor, transmission, batteries, fans, control electronics and charging system. The electric motor is connected to a controller that helps to optimize the performance of the electric motor and the entire system is connected to a series of wires that lead to the battery and then to the batteries.

The next step involves sourcing the appropriate power source for the vehicle. Since an EV has no fuel engine, the most common power sources used are gasoline and electricity. Many EV owners prefer to supplement their energy needs with electricity to reduce their dependence on gasoline and thereby increase their overall gas mileage.

The final step involves installing the batteries. The battery electric vehicle market offers a wide range of battery electric cars. Most EV batteries use a combination of gasoline and electricity for their storage capacity. In fact, the most sought after all-electric model in the EV market is the Roadster. This EV model features a very fast charger and can reach the speed of 120 miles per hour. However, the battery pack does not store power forever and once the charge is complete, the vehicle will need to be charged again.

For those who do not have access to power or do not want to wait for their charge to finish before they use their vehicle, there are now a number of companies that sell recharged lithium ion batteries. The batteries from these manufacturers can be used to power an EV when the vehicle is not in use and can help to extend the life of the vehicle. These recharged batteries can also be recharged to provide the EV with the needed energy to power the vehicle for longer periods of time.

Although the cost of an all-electric vehicle can be higher than traditionally powered vehicles, the long term effect on the earth's resources can be significant. The use of electric motors helps to conserve our natural resources. In addition, the cost of building an all-electric vehicle has come down significantly. The additional fuel economy afforded by electric motors is another environmental benefit that can be gained by switching to an all-electric vehicle. Further, an EVS reduces the emission levels caused by internal combustion engines. An EVS can go further, offering greater benefits to the global environment than any other vehicle currently on the market today.
