What are Electric Vehicles?

  • An electric vehicle (EV) is a type of vehicle that uses one or more electric motors for propulsion instead of an Internal Combustion Engine (ICE).
  • EVs can be powered by batteries that are recharged by plugging the vehicle into an electric power source, or they can be powered by a hydrogen fuel cell that converts hydrogen gas into electricity.
  • Compared to traditional gasoline-powered vehicles, EVs produce fewer emissions and are more energy-efficient that can potentially save money on fuel and maintenance costs.
