Depending on the charging station used and the capacity of the electric car battery, the charging time can vary from 10 hours to half an hour. In the future, it may be just a few minutes!
The consumption of electric cars depends on the model and the manufacturer. Most of the electric vehicles can get a total driving range between 80 and 100 kilometres out of 10 kWh.
There are currently more than 20 million vehicles in the world running on natural gas. This gas, which is called CNG, is the same as the gas used to heat our houses.
Installing a charging station for electric vehicles at home has several advantages. However, it should take technical constraints into account.
Old diesel vehicles are banned in Brussels since 2018 and the ban will gradually be extended to other worst polluting vehicles.
Electric cars are often presented as “non-polluting” or “zero emission” vehicles. But they are not necessarily less polluting than conventional vehicles!
A tonne of carbon dioxide is a return trip between Paris and New York by plane. In terms of volume, this represents a cube the size of a three-storey building, or 8.20 metres in edge length.
Based on data, you can easily calculate how much it costs to recharge the battery on your electric bike. Here’s an explanation.
Despite its advantages, the use of hydrogen in cars involves technical challenges and raises questions about efficiency, range, and safety. What's more, very few service stations offer hydrogen.
There are three main groups of electric vehicles: fully electric, standard hybrids and rechargeable hybrids.
