According to the U.S. Department of Energy Alternative Fuels Data Center, electric vehicles (EVs) charge their batteries by drawing electricity directly from the grid and other off-board electrical power sources. EVs provide instant torque, resulting in a fun, fast and quiet driver experience. They cost less to operate and can have significant emissions benefits over conventional vehicles.
