What's the lifespan of an Electric Car Battery?

How long does it take to charge an EV?


BYD Electric cars can recharge in about 3 hours if charged through the Wall mounted Charger and up to 10 hrs at 220V Charger. Charging rates can differ based on the ambient temperature, the state of the battery (e.g. empty or half full) and the maximum charging rate of the vehicle.




How fast can it go?


Electric vehicles uses electricity in batteries instead of physical fuel. Getting electrons from a battery to an electric motor is much faster than getting fuel from a gas tank to a piston. Electrons travel much faster along a wire than fuel does along a fuel line, and the electrons basically go straight to the place where they are needed, while the fuel goes through a fuel pump, then to a fuel injector, then is sprayed into a piston, and then is ignited, turning into force which drives the piston to finally create torque.
