HOW DOES AN ELECTRIC MOTOR WORK COMPARED TO A COMBUSTION ENGINE?
An electric motor converts electrical current into kinetic energy and it does so much more efficiently than a vehicle with an internal combustion engine. Compared to the combustion engine, the motor of an electric vehicle has a much simpler design—and is also lighter. Inside it, changing magnetic fields are converted into movement. To be more precise, permanently integrated stators, or in other words magnets, constantly change their poles due to the energy from the battery. The rotor sitting in the middle or in the stator, another magnet, is thus alternately attracted and repelled. This causes it to rotate and finally sets the wheels in motion.
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF E-MOBILITY?
E-mobility allows you to travel locally with zero emissions. Electric vehicles are also more economical than vehicles with conventional combustion engines—and require less maintenance. And thanks to the direct, powerful drive, they are not only great fun to drive, you will experience a completely new dimension of driving.
WHY ARE ELECTRIC VEHICLES MORE ECONOMICAL IN THE LONG-TERM?
Lower fuel and electricity costs, tax breaks and purchase bonuses: it pays to switch to electric mobility. For example, the maintenance and repair costs for electric vehicles are significantly lower than for combustion engines. This is because fully electric vehicles have fewer moving parts in the drive train and engine and that ensures less wear and tear.
