Electric Cars

By: Rachel Skillicorn

Electric cars are powered by an electric motor instead of a gasoline engine. They get the power from a controller that regulates the amount of pressure being put on the accelerator. It also gets its power from the rechargable batteries in the car which are charged by the electricity from a house. The makers of the vehicles say that it only takes about 20 minitues for a 100% full chage. It is also a lot cheaper. Instead of having a car that costs 12 cents per mile the electric cars only cost 2 cents per mile which will save you a ton of money in the long run. The cost range is form about from $12,000 - $400,000. The more expensive ones have a more of a sports car look instead of the small, conpacted look. They come in many different colors and styles, all the prices depend on the stlye and sizeof the cars.
