ELECTRIC VEHICLES: COMPONENTS AND WORKING PRINCIPLE
April 21, 2019 Mechanical Engineering FAHADH V HASSAN

All-electric vehicles (EVs) have an electric motor instead of an internal combustion engine. The vehicle uses a large traction battery pack to power the electric motor and must be plugged into a charging station or wall outlet to charge. Because it runs on electricity, the vehicle emits no exhaust from
