A Non-Engineer's Guide to Electric Vehicles
SupplierBusiness, August 2010, Pages: 16
Although many of the terms dealing with EVs are already used by the auto industry for systems present in ICEs, they are typically only used by engineers and designers who create the vehicles and rarely by the end users who buy and operate them. As a result, there is a whole new set of terms that will need to become familiar to the average buyer and even more so to the average enthusiast, who will need to have a more intimate understanding of these terms as vehicle electrification gains speed.
The Non-Engineer's Guide to Electric Vehicles provides a layman's guide to the most opaque terms and concepts when looking at the development of Electric Vehicles. This knowledge will provide a base for those looking at business as well as looking at why the term 'Electric Vehicle' is so maligned and ways of combating this skepticism amongst the general public.
