How Do Electric Cars Work

The journey of from horse carts to fuelled cars was one of the biggest revolutions mankind had seen. It was no less than a fascination to see four wheels been driven just by machines. The innovation didn’t stop. More and more luxury kept on adding to the automobile world. To make the cars more eco-friendly was another quest that the innovators embarked upon. When electric cars were introduced, everyone was awestruck by the fact that cars can run without being fuelled. It was another great revolution. This was a big step taken, socially as well as scientifically.

The battery-powered electric cars, how they run and their mechanism is one of the marvellous technological advancement. The cars which run on battery, usually called BEV (short for Battery electric vehicles) use the pre-stored electricity in the batteries in the car. After the energy from the batteries gets consumed, the batteries are recharged and the cars is again ready to be driven.

The absence of tailpipe is another plus point that makes electric cars more desirable. These cars don’t produce tailpipe pollution thus help control the pollution level which is produced by cars of other categories. However, the electric cars produce gases which have the property of trapping the gases at the source of its generation. These gases add to the greenhouse gases and create different problems.

The technology used for electric cars is now slowly being migrated to garbage carrying trucks. The technology is making the garbage trucks more efficient when it comes to fuel consumption and the emissions the car produces. Powered by battery gives the truck the advantage of maintenance. Maintaining the trucks becomes a lot easier. The battery powered trucks produce less emissions both quantity and also lesser in toxins.

Not only the newly manufactured garbage trucks can …
