Lesson recommendation: On the Road

Electric cars, also known as electric vehicles (EVs), are automobiles that are propelled by one or more electric motors, using energy stored in rechargeable batteries. These vehicles have gained popularity as a sustainable alternative to traditional internal combustion engine vehicles, due to their efficiency, lower operating costs, and minimal environmental impact. Electric cars produce zero tailpipe emissions, contributing to a reduction in air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. Advances in battery technology, charging infrastructure, and government incentives have made EVs more accessible and practical for everyday use. The transition to electric mobility is seen as a critical step in addressing climate change and promoting clean energy solutions.
