Electric Vehicles (EVs) seem to be all the buzz these days, but we don’t doubt for a second that they’re here to stay. 

As technology advances, more and more research is going into battery power and electric motors. We also see that the number of electric cars on the road increases every year. Despite this growth, there's still a lot of confusion about what precisely an electric vehicle is and why people should switch to them instead of conventional fuel-powered vehicles.

Well, let’s find out!

What is an Electric Vehicle (EV)?

An electric vehicle, or EV, is a vehicle that uses one or more electric motors for propulsion.

Electric vehicles come in many different forms, from cars to scooters to buses. They use various battery technologies and have a wide range of costs. So now we know what an electric vehicle is; let's take a look at some of the most impressive features of an electric car.

A Quieter, Smoother Experience ⁠

Compared to standard fuel-powered vehicle, electric vehicles are significantly quieter and smoother to drive because it doesn't have a gearbox, clutch, and exhaust pipe. With no gears to change, driving becomes a breeze.

You get more space, they get more space, everyone gets more space

An electric vehicle lacks an internal combustion engine because it is powered by electric motors instead. It also means more space overall. Because of this, most EVs feature spacious seats and luggage compartments. 

Additionally, advances in design and technology have reduced several vehicle components such as catalytic converter, radiator, gearbox, and fuel injectors, providing additional space for passengers. 

It’s NOT getting hot in here

Have you ever noticed a sudden increase in the reading on your car's temperature meter while driving? 

It's a common problem that every Malaysian experiences at least once in their lifetime. Now you can say "sayonara" to this, as EVs use thermal systems to ensure that the motor, power electronics, electric motor, and other components operate at their optimal temperatures. 

Advanced AI Park Assist

We know. Parking can be a nightmare, so the idea of a car that does it for you is a dream come true for many drivers. 

However, is it possible to have this kind of technology? Yes, it's called "park assist," and it's one of the most distinctive features of EVs. It features cutting-edge AI technology, and it's almost as if you had valet handling it all for you. 

Combining rear-facing and 360-degree camera systems with sensors, EVs can help you park your car like a champ.

Safer to drive  

EVs are subjected to the same safety procedure tests as other cars that run on gas or diesel. Because of their lower centre of gravity, EVs are far more stable on the road in the event of a collision, making them far safer to drive. 

Also, EVs are designed in a way that in the event of an accident, the airbags deploy immediately and the battery's power supply is cut. As a result, you and your fellow passengers will be spared serious harm.
