Electric Vehicle Charging Stations (EVCS)
in Raleigh, NC
The electric vehicle market is evolving rapidly, with models available in a range of vehicle types, from compact cars and sedans to SUVs and pickup trucks. Manufacturers regularly release new models with ever increasing ranges, and the potential to cut vehicle maintenance costs by 50%. Seize the moment and become part of the revolutionary wave of technological advancements that will reshape the world as we know it.
Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs)
Battery electric vehicles (BEVs) — also referred to as “all-electric vehicles” — run on electricity only and are recharged from an external power source. They are propelled by one or more electric motors powered by rechargeable battery packs.
Almost all BEVs can travel at least 100 miles on a charge, and many new vehicles coming on the market offer an all-electric range of 200-300 miles or more.
Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs)
Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) also use batteries to power an electric motor and can be recharged from an external power source, but they incorporate a smaller internal combustion engine that can recharge the battery (or in some models, directly power the wheels) to allow for longer driving ranges.
PHEVs can usually drive moderate distances in “EV mode” using only the battery, typically from 20 to 50 miles in current models. This significantly reduces their gasoline use and emissions under typical driving conditions, since most trips are short.
PHEVs use 14 to 47 percent less fuel than conventional vehicles if their batteries are fully charged. When electricity is unavailable, PHEVs can run on gasoline alone.
