What is an electric vehicle?

Plug-in electric vehicle is the technical term to describe all vehicles with a battery that can be charged or plugged-in to an electrical outlet. But the more common term is EV.

3 types of electric vehicles

HYBRID
A hybrid electric vehicle uses a small battery to recoup braking energy for reuse during acceleration.

PLUGIN HYBRID ELECTRIC VEHICLE
A plug-in hybrid electric vehicle has a much larger battery that can be recharged from a wall outlet or charging station. Examples are the Chevrolet Volt and Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid.

BATTERY ELECTRIC VEHICLE
A battery electric vehicle is fueled by electricity, replacing gasoline, diesel and other types of combustible fuels. It’s a vehicle that plugs into a power source to recharge its battery. Examples are the Nissan LEAF and Mitsubishi i-MiEV.

Benefits of owning an electric vehicle

  • A plug-in car uses little or no gasoline, reducing or eliminating tailpipe emissions and greenhouse gases.
  • When electricity is your fuel, you save about 75 per cent on fuel costs.
  • Because they have fewer moving parts, EVs often require less maintenance.
  • Unlike gas-powered vehicles, an EV can accelerate quickly with very little sound.
  • EVs replace imported oil with reliable and more affordable electricity.

Tesla EV Charging Stations

Tesla high power charging

Tesla Mobile Connector

PLUG IN. Where there's an outlet, you can charge. The type of outlet or charging station will determine how fast you can charge. One end of the Mobile Connector plugs into the Charge Port and the other end plugs into an outlet. Two outlet adapters are included: one for a standard household outlet and a second adapter for a 240 volt outlet. Many additional adapters are available for purchase. Tesla recommends charging from a 240 volt outlet rather than a 110 volt outlet. A 240 volt outlet provides a lot more power than a standard outlet and will charge your car faster.

High Power Charging

A Wall Connector is installed on a 240 volt circuit and can be supplied with up to twice the amperage as an outlet. At maximum amperage it supplies two times more power than the Single Charger can process. This is where Dual Chargers come into play, doubling the charging capacity to 20 kW to match the output of the Wall Connector.
