The Benefits. Find out more about the benefits of driving electric Electric vehicles have lower maintenance and fuel costs. Recent research shows that the average Australian driver stands to save $20,000 over a ten year period if they switch to an electric car. The same study shows that the maintenance costs of electric vehicles are about half of that of petrol-powered vehicles. Electric vehicles (EVs) are a great tool in the world’s fight to beat global warming. That’s because electric cars generate fewer emissions overall. Research has also found that petrol-based cars convert only 17% of the energy into vehicle movement. This is relatively low compared to the 59-62% of electric vehicles.

Electric & Hybrid Explained.

Find out how different types of electric and hybrid vehicles work

You may have heard about different versions of hybrid or electric vehicles, but they are not the same thing. Here is what you need to know about each model.

How To Charge. Find out how to charge your electric or hybrid vehicle You can either charge your car at home, work, or at a public charging point.
Each method requires a different type of charger and offers varying charging speeds.
Charging at home overnight is convenient because you will wake up to a fully charged car. In addition, you can use a three-prong 220 V charger that typically comes with the vehicle. This means that you won’t need to install any new charging equipment since your house’s standard wall outlet can do the job. Another common solution is to use a dedicated household charger. You will need to hire a trained electrician to install the EV charging wall box in an ideal location, such as the driveway or garage. This method uses a 230V outlet and is faster than using the three-prong 220 V charger. Public charging stations have also become popular because they increase the useful daily range of EVs. You can find these charging stations at public places, such as government offices, airports, hotels, shopping centres, and highway corridors. Most public charging stations use DC fast and ultra-fast charging stations to charge an electric vehicle’s battery directly. The chargers convert AC to DC power before it enters the car battery, bypassing the car’s converter. This increases the output to between 50 kW and 250 kW of power. As a result, your EV’s battery can charge up to 80 per cent of its capacity in around 30-60 minutes.
