How Electric Cars Work Will Blow Your Mind - Charging ahead
Electric cars are simple, but very effective. We explain how they work
The batteries in electric cars are most often made of lithium-ion stacks. These store electricity obtained from the grid by charging – through either a dedicated home wallbox or public charge point.
Electric cars can also be charged via a conventional three-pin socket, but this tends to take a very long time. Some electric cars can charge in around half an hour on the fastest chargers, and this time will only drop as technology advances.
