About EV Tech
The hybrid electric vehicle was the first EV to enter the market for contemporary vehicles. Due to their higher fuel efficiency, HEVs like the Toyota Prius and Lexus CT-200-H are well-liked. In addition to an electric motor and a small battery to store electricity, these vehicles also feature an internal combustion engine. The electric motor is also powered by the vehicle’s battery, even though an HEV only uses gasoline as fuel. Regenerative braking is primarily responsible for recapturing energy that is used to power the battery. An HEV is more fuel-efficient than a typical ICE vehicle due in part to the utilization of collected energy.
Impact of EV Vehicles
Similar to how internal combustion engines replaced horse-drawn carriages, the transition from fossil fuel-powered vehicles to electric vehicles (EVs) will have a significant impact on personal transportation. Sales of light vehicles decreased by 20% globally in 2020 to roughly 70 million, but they will increase in 2021 due to Covid-19. Additionally, the percentage of battery-powered vehicles will increase significantly.
Travel patterns will change as a result of this adjustment. The internal architecture of vehicles must be completely redesigned for electric power, transforming it into a mobile computer. A variety of innovative electronic devices enable connectivity and generate data, opening up new business prospects, improving mobility services, and eventually enabling fully autonomous.
