What is an ecar


There are three main type of electric vehicles:

  • Pure-electric vehicles – uses energy stored in rechargeable battery packs to drive the vehicle.
  • Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles – combines internal combustion engine or other propulsion source that can be run on conventional or alternative fuel with an electric motor that uses energy stored in the battery.
  • Extended-range electric vehicles – uses an internal combustion engine to power an electric generator that charges the battery system in a linear process – the engine powers a generator, which in turn charges the battery.
