Do the batteries of electric cars have be completely drained before recharge them?

No. Lead-acid batteries used in electric cars withstand deep discharge (which is why they are called deep cycle batteries), but too deep discharge is good for their longevity. It is best to charge the vehicle batteries at every opportunity, and not only when they are completely drained.

How often should we check the fluids in the batteries?

The harsher the use of the vehicle, and the higher the ambient temperatures, the more often the level of liquids in the batteries should be checked. A preventive weekly check with simultaneous tightening of all the poles in the batteries can prevent several breakdowns, but the mandatory check should be carried out at least once a month. Also, in cases where electric vehicles move in places with steep slopes (e.g. loading ramps or underground garages), the level of liquids requires more regular checking, since due to a high inclination, liquid may be poured from the degassing holes into the plugs.

Should electric cars be stored charged?

For the longest possible longevity of the batteries, electric cars should be stored with the batteries charged, while every 6-8 weeks they should be connected for a couple of hours to the charger so that the batteries "wake up".

What is better, an electric car 36v or 48v?

In a small two- or four-seater vehicle, a modern 36 V drive circuit is perfectly satisfactory, offering performance, range and reliability. Only in larger applications (e.g. electric tram of 20 passengers) or in vehicles-platforms that carry large loads, a drive circuit at 48V is really needed.

What top speed do electric cars have?

Each different model of an electric car has its own top speed, adjusted according to the requirements of the specific application, e.g. a truck has a shorter gear ratio and for safety reasons is limited to 12.5 km / h. In contrast, a two-seater golf car that is set up for a large flat stadium without many uphills, has a top speed of 20-21km / h. With their different options, manufacturers give the best possible result per specific use in terms of safety, practicality, and autonomy.

How many autonomy does electric car have?

The range depends directly on the load but also on the slope of the road. Thus, if a vehicle has a theoretical range of 40 kilometers, this may mean that on a perfectly smooth and flat road, with one passenger, with new batteries, properly inflated tires and temperatures in the range of 20-25 degrees Celsius, it can achieve an even greater autonomy, up to 45 or 50 kilometers. If, however, we load the same vehicle with four large passengers and drive it on a route with steep inclines, it is not excluded that the practical autonomy will fall even below 30 kilometers.
