Nowadays, the way the prices of gasoline and other fuels are fluctuating and getting high, the use of electrical cars is getting more prominent in UK. These are environment friendly cars because they do not produce carbon dioxide while driving. The electrical cars in UK can be charged using charging stations which saves a great deal on fuel expenses. There are mainly three types of electrical cars: Bev’s cars, PHEV cars and HEVs cars.
Types of electrical cars
BEV (battery electrical) cars – These cars run through chemical energy stored inside the packed rechargeable batteries. BEV cars use motor controllers or electrical controllers instead the internal combustion engines (ICE). These cars do not contain any internal combustion engine, fuel tank or fuel cell as they derive all the energy from packed batteries.
PHEV (plug-in electrical) cars – Battery of these cars can be charged by plugging these cars to the electrical power sources. Like BEVs, these cars also do not emit any polluting gaseous material. They form electrical grid through their generators and these cars can plug-in to these generators for charging. These cars are widely used for commercial purpose as passengers love to travel through these cars.
HEV (hybrid electrical) cars – They have a combination of internal combustion system (ICE) and electrical propulsion system (EPS). These cars use efficiency improving technologies like regenerative brakes which convert the kinetic energy to electrical energy. These cars emit gaseous material but in less amount than other gasoline fuels. These cars reduce emissions by shutting down the electrical engine at ideal and restart at use.
