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.

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