  1. How Electric Cars Work Stores its energy in batteries Accelerator controls number of volts delivered to motor Controller takes power from battery and delivers it to the motor

  2. How do Electric Cars work? Recharging Battery charger transfers electricity provided by electric utility into the vehicle battery to recharge it Full charge takes 3-8 hours Range Typically an electric car can go about 100 kms before recharging The 2008 Tesla Roadster can go 370.1 kms on one charge

  3. 1904 Baker Electric Stanhope Horsepower – 1.75 Top Speed – 22 kph Range – 64 kms $1600 NOT RECHARGABLE

  4. 1975 Sebring-Vanguard CitiCar Horsepower – 3.5 Top Speed – 70 kph Range – 80 km Full charge in 6 hours $3500

  5. 1998 Saturn EV1 Horsepower – 137 Top Speed – 128 kph (regulated) Range – 120 to 209kms Weight – 3084 lbs Full charge in 6 hours $33,995 ($349 per month lease)

  6. ZENN (MADE IN QUEBEC) Not street legal in Canada, but made here? Very popular in the USA Cost Starting at $9999.99 (US)

  7. Advantages Cost Electricity: 0.2-0.6 cents/km (Under a $1 to fill) Gas: average 8.0 cents/km Electricity is widely available Considered zero-emission vehicles (No tail pipe emissions) Batteries are recyclable Tax credit of up to $3400 Less Parts/Systems = Less maintenance

  8. Disadvantages Cost of batteries & Car Limited range Require charging stations Battery takes hours to get an 80% charge Some batteries are not easily recyclable/ disposable.
