An electric vehicle (EV) is one that uses an electric motor for drive, powered by a battery and typically able to be recharged by plugging it in to an external power source. There are three core types of EV – pure electric, plug-in hybrid, and mild-hybrid cars.
Most new EVs have a real-world range of somewhere between 80-250 km, depending on the model. Small, city-focused cars sit at the lower end of the range spectrum, with many family models easily able to cover 110-180 km on a single charge, though there are an increasing number that can cover 250-300 km. Premium models, like the Tesla extended range models or Jaguar I-Pace, can cover 300-350+ km on a full battery.
Depending on the model, plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) are able to drive 15-40 miles in electric only mode. However, when the conventional petrol or diesel engine is used, PHEVs have a range that can easily exceed 600 km when using both fuels.
Range-extended EVs tend to offer the same amount of range as a pure-EV on electric power, but then can call on a small combustion engine to extend the range. This typically adds another 150 km or so, with an overall range (using both fuels) of 200-250 km.
According to the results of crash testing conducted for all cars and vans, yes. Electric and hybrid cars adhere to the same safety regulations as conventional vehicles – note however that quadricycles like the Renault Twizy are not covered by the same testing regimes. Many of the EU’s best-selling Electric and hybrid cars have been awarded five stars by independent safety body EuroNCAP.
However, it should be said that there have been a small number of fires from lithium batteries, most notably involving the Tesla Model S in the United States. However, Tesla has published in-depth data to show that the incidences of fires is no greater than for conventional cars (which may be reported less frequently).
That’s the funny part with fully-electric cars… Theres no motor-oil that needs changing. Abiding with the manufacturer service requirements is still recommended.
Driving an electric car certainly feels different the first time round. Most notably an electric car is almost completely silent, with noise from the wind and tyres being created. Other than that, EV’s drive in a similar way to conventional car with an automatic transmission (single gear usually), and are very easy to drive. Best of all they have a phenomenal amount of ‘torque’ from the stand still, which means that the acceleration you will experience even in some of the standard EV models will astonish you.
Fundamentally, the answer is much less than a petrol or diesel car would. Given the current fuel costs for petrol or diesel cars are on average between in the range €0.12-0.18 per km, and only € 0.03-0.05 per km for a home-charged pure-EV. Because of the variety of models available, each will have different costs per trip, depending on where it is charged, and how efficient the particular EV model is.
