ELECTRIC VEHICLE INTRODUCTION

The operation and driving of an electric vehicle is similar to driving a vehicle with an internal combustion engine, except for the following differences:

  • The electric vehicle is propelled using two electric motors.

  • The electric motors require energy supplied via the vehicle's high voltage battery.

  • The high voltage battery requires recharging using an external source. See VEHICLE CHARGING OVERVIEW.

  • Regenerative braking is used to recover energy and charge the high voltage battery. See REGENERATIVE BRAKING.
