How Battery Electric Works

 

Powertrain
BEVs use an electric motor, powered by the large capacity battery. Throughout your entire drive - starting off, accelerating, cruising, braking or at rest - the electric motor is used to power the vehicle. When braking, the battery is recharged.

Fuel Source
Battery Electric Vehicles must be plugged in to an AC (Alternating Current) or ultra-rapid DC (Direct Current)1 charger to recharge.

Benefits
BEVs have improved acceleration, zero vehicle carbon emissions, and are quieter because they do not have a combustion engine.
