  • Ruby Hsu
    If you're comparing an electric car and a gas car with the same horsepower rating, the electric car is able to use a lot more of its horsepower, too. That's because EVs have fewer moving parts, so they're able to run more efficiently.15 Jan 2019
  • How many volts is a Tesla motor?

    Battery - High Voltage
    TypeLiquid-cooled lithium ion (Li-ion)
    Nominal Voltage360 V DC
    Temperature RangeDo not expose Model Y to ambient temperatures above 60° C or below -30° C for more than 24 hours at a time.
  • Why are electric cars single-speed?

    Internal combustion engines need a bunch of gears because they have a narrow RPM window within which they can operate efficiently. For electric motors, that window is much wider, so a single-speed works for both low-end acceleration and highway driving.5 Sept 2019
  • Do electric cars have horse power?

    Yes, electric vehicles do have horsepower. But it's not necessarily that simple. Some carmakers prefer to measure their EV's output in kilowatts. Nissan, for example, says its Leaf puts out 80 KW, while the Prius hybrid is described as having 60 hp.27 Jan 2022
  • Why should gas cars be banned?

    By banning gasoline-powered vehicles, California will lower the rates of emission of toxic pollutants within our environment, drastically. The downside would be that electric cars are still more expensive than the traditional gasoline car and they would have to travel in shorter distances.16 Oct 2020
  • Are EV cars heavier?

    Despite them being so fast and monsters on the track, they are significantly heavier than traditional cars with internal combustion engines. Electric cars are heavier because of the added batteries, reinforced framework and suspension, and the metal armor around the battery to protect it.
