How Electric Cars Work Will Blow Your Mind - They're great to drive

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

One point many owners make is that electric vehicles are often more enjoyable and peaceful to drive thanks to the lack of engine noise. Perfect for a serene commute while listening to music or the radio, electric cars have the ability to bring luxury-car levels of refinement to everyday buyers. 

They can be exciting too, however – some of our favourites balance comfort with punchy performance and a chassis that deals well with the added weight of those bulky batteries. If you are a keen driver, there's much to like about even some of the cheapest electric cars.
