EVOLUTION ELECTRIC STATION - Solutions for E-Mobility
An electric car is an automobile that uses an electric motor as its primary propulsion source. Electric vehicles (EV) use electricity which is stored in rechargeable batteries.
The term electric vehicle (EV) is commonly used to indicate three main types of automotive transmissions.
These are battery electric vehicles (BEV), hybrid electric vehicles (MHEV) and plug-in electric vehicles (PHEV).
A BEV is a "real" electric vehicle in that the only source of propulsion is electricity.
Battery electric vehicles store electricity on board with high capacity batteries.
This battery power supply is used to operate all the on-board electronic components and electric motors of the main drive. BEVs are powered by electricity from an external source, an electrical outlet or charging stations for special electric vehicles.
A hybrid-electric MHEV vehicle is equipped with a two-part drive system, a conventional fuel engine and an electric drive. MHEVs contain all the components of both the internal combustion engine (ICE) and electric vehicles.
In practice, the only help it gives is to help the traditional engine when it is under torque, in ignition or during release to brake the machine, saving on the brakes and recharging the battery Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) are similar to MHEVs, except that the energy used to propel the vehicle is electricity and not fuel. These vehicles have greater electric traction and battery storage capacity than MHEVs and are also equipped with a smaller internal combustion engine. They are designed to engage the fuel engine when battery electricity is low or to replace the electric transmission when more power is needed. Since PHEVs can be recharged from an electrical outlet, they can be powered entirely with electricity.
