    What is an electric vehicle?

    Unlike internal combustion engines, the necessary movement energy in electric cars is provided by the battery on the vehicle, not from gasoline and similar petroleum products. This energy is transferred to the electric motor and the wheels are rotated. The batteries in electric cars are charged from the electrical network via devices such as Volti Charge Systems.

    What are the advantages of an electric vehicle?

    Charging electric cars’ batteries is cheaper and more environmentally friendly than filling the fuel tanks of vehicles with internal combustion engines. The “Well-to-Wheel” (how efficient it is to produce and then deliver the energy) for electric vehicles is significantly lower than that of vehicles with internal combustion engines.  Electric motors are also quieter while running. Therefore, electric vehicles also help to prevent noise pollution.

    How do I charge my electric vehicle?

    Electric vehicles are charged while stationary. While Volti HOME provides private charging for people at home or at work, Volti STATION allows you to charge your vehicle in public areas for a fee.

    When there is no Volti HOME or Volti STATION around, Volti GO allows you to charge your vehicle from any suitable electrical outlet.
