Introduction
 Today we are going to discuss a few common questions about electric cars
 Feel free to comment if you have more questions 
What is an electric vehicle?
 An electric vehicle is an automobile that uses one or more traction motors
for propulsion
 Electric vehicles are classified into three
 Battery Electric Vehicle
 Hybrid Electric Vehicle
 Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle
Can I see any Electric Vehicle on road?
 Yes. You can.
 Electric vehicles are not as common as conventional vehicles
 Depends on the country you live, the number of EVs vary
 Hybrid Electric Vehicles are common (micro hybrids)
 Tesla motors manufactures Electric cars in large number
 World’s major car manufacturers already declared their EV plans
 Electric Rickshaws are common in India
Why would one go for Electric Car?
 Electric vehicles have many advantages
 Low noise
 Zero/low tail pipe emission
 Low running cost
 Less maintenance
 Initial cost is high, but it reduces
 Manufacturers already started production of electric cars
Do I need a license to drive electric
vehicle?
 Depends on the area where you live, you might need license to drive an
electric vehicle
 An Electric vehicle with power rating less than 250W and maximum speed
less than 25kmph need not be registered or the driver doesn’t require
license to drive (in India)
 Cars, generally need registration and driver has to have license
Are electric cars eco-friendly?
 If an electric car is considered as a stand alone entity then it is ecofriendly
 Electric cars have zero/low tail pipe emission
 If the electricity for electric cars are generated completely from renewable
sources then they can be considered as 100 % eco-friendly
 Electricity is being generated from thermal power stations and the
conversion of chemical energy to electric energy pollutes environment
Are EVs safe to use?
 Yes
 Electric vehicles are manufactured meeting all the safety standards for a
vehicle
 People asks about the safety of electric vehicle battery in accidents
 They are safe
 Extra layer of protection is provided between electric vehicle battery and
the passenger cabin
 Even though it’s caught fired the special construction slow down the
spread of fire and alarm the passengers to get out of vehicle
 Following collisions EVs have provision to get disconnected from battery
to avoid further damage
How do we recharge an EV battery?
 Home charging are the common method for electric car charging
 Other types of charging facilities are
 Public charging stations
 Private charging stations
 Fast charging stations
 Overnight charging from home charging stations is the most common EV
charging technique for vehicles which travels less than 100 km per day
Can we go for long drives in electric
car?
 If charging stations are available then we can go for longer distance in
electric vehicle
 Most of the electric cars travel around 200km with one full charged battery
 Fast charging stations and public charging stations are necessary for
convenient drive for a long distance
What is the life span of Electric Car
battery?
 High voltage battery of electric vehicle normally lasts for 5 to 7 years
 Life of the battery depends on how it is being used
 Number of charge discharge cycles, environmental conditions etc. affects
the life of the battery
Why are electric cars so expensive?
 Electric vehicle battery is the most expensive component in an electric car
 Electric vehicle technology is not as matured as infernal combustion
engine vehicle technology
 Manufacturers just started commercial production of EVs recently
How much to spend for maintenance
of EV?
 Maintenance cost of electric vehicles are around 35% less than that of
conventional vehicles
 Oil changes, repair of exhaust systems, engine repair, frequent
maintenance of clutch, gearbox etc. are completely unnecessary in an
electric vehicle
How would be the driving experience
is an electric vehicle?
 Electric cars use electric motors for propulsion
 Highly versatile speed torque characteristics of electric motor provides the
required sporty experience
 Performance at low speed (less vibration, high and smooth acceleration) is
impressive in an EV
 All wheel drive is also available
Why don’t vehicle manufacturers
develop electric car?
 They started developing electric cars and officially declared their plans
about electric vehicles
 Tesla plans to sell 0.5 million electric cars by 2018
 Volkswagen would sell 2-3 million electric cars by 2025
 Ford’s plan is to develop 13 new electric vehicle models by 2020
 Volvo will sell 1 million electric cars by 2025
 Honda plans to shift their 2/3 of total production to electrified vehicles by
2030 (BEVs, HEVs, and PHEVs)
 BMW will be selling 15-25% of their total cars as electric vehicle by 2025
 Chinese manufacturers aim to sell 4.5 million EVs annually by 2020
Why would we go for EV rather than
gasoline vehicle?
 A few reasons are
 Depletion of fossil fuels
 To reduce environmental pollution
 Evs are highly versatile and energy efficient
 Less noise
Could power system supply enough
energy to large no. of EVs?
 Electric vehicles are relatively large loads to the power utility grid
 Power system capacity would also increase as number of EVs increases
Why are charging stations not that
common?
 Charging stations are necessary to charge electric vehicles
 Number of electric vehicles is directly affects the number of charging
stations
 Charging stations are common in the countries where electric vehicle are
common
 Tesla motors installed large number of charging stations in United States
 They setup electric vehicle charging stations all over the world
