The First EV Was Built in 1884

London innovator, Thomas Park, was in charge of the city’s overhead tramways electrification. He designed and built the electric vehicle to reduce low-efficient and environmentally friendly cars with his EC because they were fueled by high-capacity rechargeable batteries.

EVs Include Cars, Transit Buses, Trucks, & More!

Electric vehicles don’t just come in sedan and SUV body styles. You can spot electric buses, FedEx, and heavy-duty zero-emissions trucks throughout the Overland Park area. Trucks offer excellent economic savings as they’re cheaper to fuel and operate than diesel trucks.

Charge Your Vehicle at Home, Work, or the Store

Many shoppers worry about buying plug-in hybrids because they don’t think there are enough charging stations. Not only are there more charging stations popping up in your area, but you can turn your garage into an at-home charging station. You can charge your vehicle at work, your grocery store, the mall, or any other major establishment. Having an EV doesn’t limit you to just charging your vehicle at home.

There are Five Categories of Electric Vehicles

Most people know battery EVs, plug-in hybrids, and traditional hybrid vehicles, but there are five categories of electric vehicles!

  1. Battery EVs run entirely on electric motors and batteries. They a recharged from a power grid, and their mileage range is 100-200 per charge.
  2. Plug-In Hybrids use rechargeable batteries, electric motors, and internal combustion engines. Their mileage range on the electric mode is 30-40 miles per charge.
  3. Hybrid EVs that use small electric batteries and internal combustion engines. Their batteries are charged by engines or through regenerative braking.
  4. Extended-Range EVs that use rechargeable batteries and internal combustion engines. Their batteries are charged by engines or power grids.
  5. Neighborhood EVs use batteries that are recharged from a 120-volt grid. They can reach a maximum speed of 30 mph.
