TRAVELING TOWARDS THE ELECTRIC
When we talk about electric cars, we are usually also talking about the future. Indeed, many countries seem to increasingly believe in the advantages of this type of car, adopting incentive programmes for the purchase of electric cars. The electric car is one of the major trends in the automotive industry, a key component that is attracting everyone's interest.
But what is an electric car, and why is it so important?
The electric car is, quite simply, a car that uses electricity through charging, and not petrol or other fuels usually employed in cars. Unlike hybrid cars, electric cars have an absent polluting impact. Even the engine noise is absent, but an obligation has been introduced for manufacturers to equip electric cars with sound synthesizers to warn pedestrians of their arrival.
The acronym BEV (Battery Electric Vehicle) is also used for the electric car, because the car is refuelled by recharging the batteries using electricity from the mains or other distribution systems. Recharging can take place using the charging stations spread around the country or with a domestic electrical outlet.
Recharging an electric car is easy and can be performed anywhere there is a socket or charging station. Public charging stations are also available at petrol stations, car parks, restaurants, hotels and other locations.
Electric vehicle charging times vary greatly depending on the type of charging, power and capacity of the battery.
