An electric car looks like any other car but it features something that is quite innovative in the history of the automobile. Apart from the fact that they run on electric energy, there are some pretty outstanding features that are unique and groundbreaking.
For example, the electric car has no exhaust pipe. In fact it has no exhaust system at all. This means you have no smoke coming our of the car as it runs. Hitherto, all vehicles had some sort of combustion outlet that emitted the waste from the burning of fuel.
Again, the electric car has no fuel tank. It uses energy from the batteries so there is no need to hold fuel in liquid or gaseous form for it’s automotive power. So we can definitely say it is a tankless car.
For the first time, the barking system of a car will serve as a charging system for its batteries. In the regular car, you have the alternator as the system that charges the battery. The electric car has something interesting – the batteries are charged when you brake the car. The process is called regenerative braking and it can recover about 15% of the energy that the car used.
The electric car is therefore an economical and amazing piece of technology worth admiring. Upon close examination, you will notice that it has been able to bring together many features and components that were once considered futuristic and almost impossible to achieve. Today, the electric car comes to reality with them.
