An electric motor uses electrical energy to produce mechanical energy. Electric cars have a rich and deep history dating back to the origin of the automobile. Electric Cars are typically battery powered, and are somewhat related to hybrid vehicles in that hybrid vehicles use a gas engine to recharge the batteries while electric vehicles are recharged by plugging into a power source.

Some popular vehicles that are powered by electricity:
The Tesla
The Toyota RAV4 EV
Chevrolet Volt
