ELECTRIC MOBILITY

everything you need to know

EV technology explained

EV (Electric Vehicle) technology is characterized by cars that don’t use fossil fuel and can be charged in any appropriate electrical outlet.

Because they don't have a combustion engine, electric cars have fewer wearing parts and require less maintenance. The experience of driving a 100% electric car can be surprisingly fun, thanks to its instantaneous availability of maximum torque and impressive acceleration. Driving a 100% electric Hyundai model is a conscious and sustainable choice: it only has pros!

EV Technology

How do electric cars work?

Electric cars have an extremely developed technology. The electric motor is progressive, so it doesn't need a gearbox or a clutch. Batteries determine the power that the engine can use and the autonomy of an electric car, which does not produce any kind of emission.

Like charging a mobile phone, the energy needed to charge electric cars comes from the electricity grid. The type of socket, the type of charging cable and the charging power used define the charging speed.

With exceptional performance, without any vibrations and practically no noise, the electric technology provides a comfort that allows you to enjoy your driving to the fullest.

FAQs
about electric cars

Will an electric car suit my lifestyle?

If you have a short commute and mostly do quick trips, and have short daily commutes in a day, then yes, an EV will probably suit your lifestyle. A consistent daily routine will make it easier to return to you house at night, plug it and and have your EV fresh and recharged for the next day.

Is an EV more expensive to own than a regular car?

Despite being more expensive at first, EV’s benefit from tax breaks and financial incentives and, as the years progress, have lower operating costs (fuel and maintenance), making them cheaper than gas-powered cars in their lifetime.

Can the life of EV batteries be drastically reduced due to constant use?

While it's true that many EVs use lithium-ion batteries, which are also used in laptops and cell phones, auto manufacturers engineer vehicle batteries to significantly outlast your phone. This is done in part by reducing the operating range of the battery, never allowing it to get fully charged or completely empty (even if the display that the driver sees says otherwise). It should also ease your concern to know that every new EV comes with a battery warranty and most manufacturers will replace an EV's battery pack if its capacity degrades past a certain threshold.

Are EVs as safe to drive as other vehicles?

EVs have to adhere to the same safety regulations as conventional vehicles. If you’re concerned about driving through water, know that the wadding depth (the amount of water a car can drive through) of an EV is normally around the same as for its petrol or diesel equivalent and does not present any higher risks.
