An Introduction To
                 Electric Vehicles




     A brief introduction to the benefits of electric vehicles and
      growing presence within the private transport industry.

An Introduction To
            Electric Vehicles
When it comes to electric vehicles, 3 main kinds exist;

3.   There are those that are directly powered from an external power source

4.   There are those that are powered by stored electricity originally from an
     external power source, and

6.    There are those that are powered by an on-board electrical generator;
     • e.g. an internal combustion engine (as with a hybrid electric vehicle)
         or a hydrogen fuel cell.
An Introduction To
             Electric Vehicles
Electric vehicles include;


     •    Electric cars
     •    Electric trains
     •    Electric lorries
     •    Electric aeroplanes
     •    Electric boats and
     •    Electric motorcycles and scooters
An Introduction To
             Electric Vehicles

Because of the efficiency that electric engines have when you compare them to
 a typical combustion engine, even when the electricity used to charge vehicles
comes from a CO2 emitting source, e.g. as a coal or gas fired powered plant, the
overall net production of CO2 from an electric car is typically one third to one
half that of the combustion vehicle.

Pretty amazing.
An Introduction To
             Electric Vehicles

The internal combustion engine (ICE) is the dominant propulsion method for
motor vehicles but electric power has remained commonplace in other vehicle
types, such as trains and smaller vehicles of all types.

Many electric designs have limited range, due to the low energy density of
batteries compared to the fuel of internal combustion engine vehicles.
An Introduction To
              Electric Vehicles

In 2003 the Energy Information Administration estimated there would be
       55,852
full-electric vehicles in 2004, with an annual growth rate of 39.1% (excluding in
this estimation electric hybrids).

In the current year, 2012, it would seem the growth rate hasn’t quite continued
as forecasted in the West, but certainly China has a lot of development in play
regarding elelctric powered vehicles and other types of sustainable transport.

Since electric vehicles use whatever electricity is delivered by their electrical utility/grid operator, electric vehicles can be made more or less efficient, polluting and expensive to run, by modifying the electrical generating stations.

One such popular hybrid vehicle is the Toyota Prius – the flagship car in GLH’s green courier range.
