How Electric Cars Work Will Blow Your Mind - Charging ahead

Electric cars are simple, but very effective. We explain how they work

All electric vehicles come with some form of battery pack, often made of lithium-ion stacks. These store electricity obtained from the grid by charging. Much like charging a mobile phone, an electric vehicle is plugged into the grid, through either a home or a public charging unit, to boost its electricity level.

It might sound different, but the way you drive an EV is very familiar.
