We all have opinions on whether electric cars can replace the emotion of internal combustion, Electric cars or internal combustion engine cars—which is better? Electric cars were in their heyday back in 1900, but a sudden rise in petrol engine cars, accompanied by battery technology inefficiencies killed electric cars by 1920.

However, with recent improvements in battery technology and power electronics, electric cars have made a strong comeback. We will compare these totally different technologies scientifically, and come to understand which is superior. Watch the video from Learn Engineering for more info:

Here we are using Tesla model S as electric car to compare with its petrol engine car counter part. Electricity is less expensive than gasoline and EVs are more efficient than gasoline vehicles.

Electric cars cost less compared to conventional gas vehicles each year. Electric cars have zero tailpipe emissions, we can look forward to cleaner air when there are more electric cars on the road. Electric cars have extremely high torque power, their pickup is very quick and smooth, leaving gas-powered vehicles eating dust.
