An electric car is a type of car that utilizes an electric motor instead of an internal combustion engine (ICE). The electric power is stored in battery packs in the vehicle. Electric cars have rechargeable batteries, that need to be recharged after a given mileage. Unlike Hybrid cars, electric car do not have both an ICE and an electric motor. The electric motor can also serve in regenerative braking that will recharge the batteries and assist in increasing the longevity of the brake pads.
