Electric Car Parts
The electric vehicle is a good alternative
to the gasoline powered cars of today as they are quiet to run
and, since no gasoline is burned, do not produce any wasteful
exhaust. An electric car may have a number of electric car
parts and these are not the same as many of those used in
gasoline driven vehicles. Therefore, there is less maintenance
cost as this means that there is no need for constant tuning up
and fuel changing as is the case with gasoline cars.
The only thing that is required is the
battery and its maintenance is minimal. Electric car parts
are changing the way the car moves and operate. More and more
people are wanting less of mechanical controls and more of
electric car parts. Nowadays, you can even do your own electric
car conversion using some of the electric car conversion
kits available on the market.
What are electric car parts like? What are
the characteristics of electric car parts?
Most of the electric car parts are either
solid-state or electrical and there are no moving parts and the
average maintenance costs of electric cars is about 30 percent
lower than their fuel driven counterparts. However, an
electric vehicle battery
does not provide high energy content per unit of weight and
this means that there is a greater load on the electric car batteries
to perform up to expectations, and need quite some time to
fully recharge and be serviceable once again.
What is an alternative source of energy for
An alternative source of energy for electric
cars has been developed and involves placing metal strips
within the roadbed and all electrical energy gets provided from
a central source through the strips of metal.
Other electric car parts
Besides the electric vehicle batteries
and the metal strip used for generating energy, there are other
electric car parts that need to be considered and one such one
is the electric car starter part. Other electric car parts
include the wiring, connectors, switches, fuses and holders,
and the relays.
Another interesting electric car part is the
electrically operated rear view mirror that costs just about
$120 and can be controlled from within the vehicle itself. Add
to that is the power steering and power windows that do away
with mechanical operations, replacing them with electricity.
The electric clock is a normal part of the dashboard as too are
the other controls. The electric fuel pump is exactly what the
car owner needs to get the vehicle going again in case of
breakdowns. It mounts on the fuel tank and comes with the
complete electrical connections and also costs around $120.
The main reason for using an electrically
operated vehicle is the efficient manner in which the car can
be controlled and its capability of providing power efficiently
as well as being mechanically simple. The power steering unit
is another example of the electric car part that has become a
standard feature of modern day vehicles – be they electrically
operated or gasoline driven. There is considerable ease of
maneuverability and greater control over the steering of the
