ELEC­TRIC CAR

Torque (Singapore) - - BMW SPECIAL -

Elec­tric cars or EVs (elec­tric ve­hi­cles) run on elec­tric power alone. If the elec­tric­ity used to charge their bat­ter­ies comes from clean power sources, then an elec­tric car can be even more eco-friendly than a hy­brid or PHEV. EVs also have the edge when it comes to per­for­mance and run­ning costs. Elec­tric mo­tors are not only more ef­fi­cient than petrol en­gines – their power de­liv­ery is in­stan­ta­neous, too.

And be­cause elec­tric mo­tors don’t re­quire ser­vic­ing (there are no flu­ids to change or com­po­nents to re­place), an EV’s main­te­nance costs are con­sid­er­ably lower com­pared to hy­brids and PHEVs, too.
