EV Glossary of Terms
If you’re new to the world of electric vehicles it’s exciting but sometimes daunting, to learn the terminology and rules. It might feel like there’s too much to remember.
For example, you might not know how long it takes to charge an electric car. The answer varies – it can take as little as 30 minutes or more than 12 hours. It all depends on the size of the car battery and the speed of the charge point.
And then there’s all the new jargon to get used to, which can be confusing. You might think the meaning of ICE is to avoid driving on a freezing road. It’s actually the car acronym for an internal combustion engine. While that’s what traditional cars are known as, you might have never needed to know until you bought an EV – electric vehicle.
There’s lots more EV lingo to learn. And even if you’re not a first-time user, it’s a good idea to brush up on your knowledge from time to time.
