The efficiency of electric motors is one of the benefits of electric vehicles resulting in lower cost per kilometer. Efficiency simply is the ratio of the energy delivered to the engine and the energy delivered by the engine to the wheels.
How is efficiency measured?
In fuel powered vehicles, the Internal Combustion Engines (ICE) uses a mixture of fuel and spark-driven air that produces the spark plug (in gasoline engines) and thus moves the piston that transfers its energy to the wheels. This combustion process can simply deliver 20% to 40% of the energy while the rest is converted into expulsion or exhaust material.
On the other hand, an Electric Vehicle (EV) has its motor powered by battery. The electricity passes to the motor creating electromagnetic field, which interacts to deliver power to the wheel. Such conversion of energy provides over 85% of efficiency.
Other elements that increase the efficiency of electric motors
With less mechanical parts and state of art technology of vehicle manufacturing, EVs depict the following advantages over fuel powered vehicles:
- EVs have lower operating and maintenance costs as electric motors don’t have moving parts that rub against each other alike fuel powered vehicles
- Low noise – An absolutely silent driving experience
- The per kilometer cost of commute is reduced by huge margin, taking into account the energy demand of each of these engines
As a bonus, some EVs have the feature of regenerative braking, i.e., some of the spent energy is provided back to the system during braking, thus increasing the mileage of vehicle per charge.
Electric vehicles accelerate faster than fuel powered vehicles, as a result, they feel lighter to drive. They reduce unnecessary burden of gear changing during driving. Unless you are an EV enthusiast you would be amazed to find the development in Electric Vehicles in past decade.
