Electric battery vehicles, or BEVs, use electricity stored in a battery pack to drive an electric motor and switch wheels on. When exhausted, the power provided either from a wall socket or from a dedicated charging unit using grid electricity. Since they do not run on petrol or diesel and are powered entirely by electricity, electric battery cars and trucks are known as “all-electric” vehicle.
