Auto manufacturers like Nissan,Chevrolet, Tesla and Renault, are already making headlines worldwide with their high-performance electric cars like Nissan Leaf, Renault Zoe and Chevrolet Bolt.
Some car manufacturing companies produce cars that run completely on electricity, whereas some manufacture hybrid cars, which run on both gas and electricity.
How Do Electric Cars Function?
Rechargeable batteries are installed inside the electric cars and power is derived from these batteries. Not only do these cars run on batteries, but all their features including the wipers and lights function using the same power. As these batteries are the source of all the power, their gradual wear and tear is natural. However, this steady deterioration is not covered by car insurance in UAE. This is why it is better to be ready for all circumstances if you plan to buy an electric car.
The batteries are similar to those that are used in a gasoline engine. The only difference is that there are more batteries in electric cars to power the engine.
