ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

Are electric cars better for the environment?

According to official research, electric cars are better for the environment than combustion-engine vehicles, like those that run on petrol and diesel. That’s because they give off zero CO² exhaust emissions and air pollutants when driving.

No exhaust fumes helps reduce the carbon footprint of every journey when driving an electric car. This also means that you will be exempt from congestion charges, when travelling in low emission zones in major cities.

ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

Do electric cars use oil?

Electric cars don’t use conventional engines, so don’t need any oil. Instead, they use electric motors that are powered by batteries, which can be recharged at a designated electric vehicle charging station.

Along with not requiring oil and oil filter changes, electric vehicles don’t need new spark plugs or fuel filters, which further helps the environment by reducing waste.

information

Do electric cars have transmissions?

Electric vehicles contain an automatic gearbox, but not in the conventional sense, as it is a single-speed transmission. In an electric car, the transmission takes power from the motor and transfers it to the wheels, driving and rotating them.

This power, known as torque, is immediately available and eliminates the need for the car to warm up or idle. This significantly reduces emissions.
