An electric vehicle (EV), also referred to as an electric drive vehicle, uses one or more electric motors for propulsion. Electric motors: converts electrical energy into mechanical energy. Most electric motors operate through interacting magnetic fields and current-carrying conductors to generate force, although a few use electrostatic forces
