FAQ About Cars
What is an electric car?
Extract from www.bmw.co.za
A purely electric car (BEV, Battery Electric Vehicle) drives exclusively with electricity. It therefore has no combustion engine to power the vehicle. The electricity is stored in a battery. Its capacity determines the range of the e-car, in other words the distance that can be covered with one battery charge.
Many drivers worry about the range – in most cases such worries are unfounded. After all, most BEVs today have a range of more than 250 kilometres.
Purely electric cars are ideal for users who can charge electric cars at work or at home. At the same time, the extension of the public charging infrastructure is being pursued intensively. New charging stations are therefore appearing all the time in urban areas and along highways. This also includes a large number of high-power charging stations for ultra-fast charging while travelling. In the future, long-distance journeys will become easier and easier as a result.
