How does it work?

What is an electric vehicle?
Electric vehicle means a vehicle with one or more electric engines. Electricity is stored in batteries or other devices. Vehicles that use an internal combustion engine together with electric ones, are called hybrids. The actual electric vehicles (Battery Electric Vehicle, BEV) are vehicles operating only with an electric engine and having sufficient battery capacity in comparison with hybrids. On average, the electric vehicle can travel approximately 200km. In rare cases, the electric vehicle battery is much more capable and allows travelling greater distances (the Tesla Roadster can travel almost 1000km with one charge), however, it means that the price of the electric vehicle is much higher.
Why should I drive an electric vehicle?
Electric vehicles are environmentally-friendly, they do not emit CO2 and play a significant role in improving the air quality. Electric vehicles use lithium-ion batteries, which are 95% recyclable. Electric vehicles are silent, therefore enabling reduction of the noise levels in cities. Another reason to get an electric vehicle is an economic one – an electric vehicle is much easier and cheaper to use. Parking of electric vehicles is free of charge in cities and electric vehicles are also allowed to use the „A“ traffic lane.
What is a BEV and PHEC and what is the difference between them?
A battery electric vehicle (BEV) is a 100% electric vehicle. The actual electric vehicle uses electricity as the only power source, which is charged from the electricity grid into the electric vehicle battery. A plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) is a hybrid vehicle, which has an electric engine, battery and a regular internal combustion engine. Such vehicles are more universal, however, their maintenance is very complicated and pricey. Benefits, e.g. parking the vehicle in a city free of charge, also this does not apply to hybrid vehicles.
What is the average distance of different electric vehicles with one charging?
The average driving distance of an electric vehicle depends on the battery capacity, effectiveness and size. The bigger the battery, the lower the resistance coefficient, and the smaller weight, the longer distance an electric vehicle can go in one charging. Here are some examples:
  • Nissan Leaf 40kWh – 200km;
  • Tesla Model S 100kWh – 500km;
  • Audi Etron Quattro 85kWh – 300km;
  • Jaguar I-Pace 95kWh – 300km;
How many kWhs does it take for an electric vehicle to travel 100km distance?
It depends on the engine power of the electric vehicle, the driving style, weather conditions and temperature, however it can be generalized as follows:
  • Passenger car 20kWh/100km;
  • All-terrain vehicle 30kWh/100km;
  • Tesla Model S with 100 kWh battery can travel approximately 500km;
  • Jaguar I-Pace with 95kWh battery can travel approximately 300km on one charging;
