How does an Electric Car work ? | Tesla Model S

Published on May 30, 2017 5,758,280 views

Electric cars are making big waves in the automobile world. These noise-free, pollution-free and high-performance vehicles are expected to make their I.C. engine counterparts obsolete by 2025. This video will unveil the hidden technologies behind the Tesla Model S, which recently became the world’s fastest accelerating car. We will see how electric cars have achieved superior performance by analyzing the technology behind the induction motor, inverter, lithium ion battery power source, regenerative braking and above all, the synchronized vehicle mechanism, in a logical, step-by-step manner. The working and features of Tesla car is explained here with help of animation.

Please support us at so that we can add one more member to the team and will be able to release 2 educational videos/month.

Check out this excellent video on regenerative braking from Kyle Drivers.

  • Bill A
    Bill A 10 месяцев назад (изменено) At 0:05 "polution free"? Hmmm... probably not, because currently we're still generating electricity using lots of "dirty" methods in addition to clean methods. When the only power generation waste is only is water, then you can say "pollution free". Moreover, the manufacturing of lots of the electric car parts also generates dirty wastes. So currently "pollution free" is more like an illusion. One of the biggest advantages of electric cars is the regenerative breaking, where breaking is not wasted as heat in the break pads, but rather converted back into electricity. At 8:20 Now that is cool! ;)

  • Miles Jr
    Miles Jr 9 месяцев назад Ok ,, the motor acts as a generator under regenerative braking conditions and converts kinetic enenrgy in to electric and sends it to the battery. What type of electricity it creats ?? AC or DC ?? Does it send the energy directly to the battery or to the inverter first and to the battery afterwards?? Guys please help me if you know
  • Bill A
    Bill A 9 месяцев назад Honestly, the regenerative breaking system is one of the biggest assets of ECs (Electric Cars), which gives it a high energy preservation and efficiency. In my opinion this tech also works really well in hybrids, which gives them the best of both worlds. I said it before, and say it again, that until they develop an energy pack (aka battery, capacitor, or fusion) which gives the same or better range as ICE cars (Internal Combustion Engine) and deploy charging stations at every gas station, ECs are just a toy for now. ;)

And when you’re on the road, it’s easy to plug in along the way—at any public station or with the Tesla charging network. We currently have over 12,000 Superchargers worldwide, with six new locations opening every week.

    Money4Nothing Год назад (изменено) I love your videos, but there's no way IC engines are obsolete by 2025 lol. You're looking at 2045 before you are even close to that prediction. Look at the percentage of people that buy $80,000 vehicles right now. Until Tesla can cut that cost in half, IC cars will be ubiquitous. What do you think about ditching the induction motor in electric cars for SR motors? SR motors are much cheaper. And you will get much higher torque at lower speeds than induction motors.

  • Marmocet
    Marmocet 6 месяцев назад BEVs are quiet, there's no doubt about that, but most of the noise light vehicles of any kind emit, whether they're BEV, ICEVs or hybrids, comes from their tires, not their drivetrains. Also, there's nothing about BEVs that makes things like large screens and over the air updates exclusive to them. ICEVs and hybrids can just as easily incorporate these features too. Hybrids, and even certain ICEVs can deliver ranges of 600 or more miles between recharges/refueling, so in that respect, they're still by far superior to BEVs, especially when cost is taken in to consideration. I'm all in favor of clean transportation, especially because I do a lot of my travel by bicycle and I wind up having to inhale what comes out of people's tailpipes, but it's useful to have these little reality checks from time to time so we don't get too carried away with the hype.
  • Rick Kay
    Rick Kay 5 месяцев назад @Marmocet Exactly right. It is only a matter of time before battery technology makes them as cheap and long-range as the hybrids are. Once the charging tine is instant, ICE is done.
  • Marmocet
    Marmocet 5 месяцев назад @Rick Kay I suppose the question is, is there any indication that batteries that can be recharged in the same time that it takes to fill a tank of gas are actually on the horizon. At present, trying to recharge a battery that fast will destroy it pretty quickly.

  • Год назад Captain Morgan in 2013 after all incentives I paid $26,500 for my Nissan Leaf and I save $2200 a year by not buying Gas. At $26,500 minus your $15,000 that's $11,500. Which new car is $11,500 ? - $2200 a year multipled by 13 years = I paid nothing for my LEAF. Seems like buying an EV saves you money. You cannot save money by buying a Gas Burning car.

If I can save $2200 a year from not buying Gas or paying for Maintenance on a Gas burning Car then I'm going to switch too!!! With the extra money I save I can buy a 1965 Mustang Convertible to bring to car shows! The EV can be my daily driver and the Muscle Car can be for the weekends!!! Awesome.

    HeliosphanXtal Год назад +K1ngjulien_ dont get me wrong, I am all for EV's, but magnesium batteries have not been blocked by "giant companies", they just werent good enough due to low voltage and low energy density. Lithium Ion battery technology has made EV's break through, there is no conspiracy theory needed. Offcourse there are companies who would like to halt or slow down the EV evolution, but not in the way you suggest. Battery technology can simply make too much money these days for one to put it in a locker; the applications are abundant.

Not his. Right now there are 32 plug-in cars. By 2020 there will be 75 models. By 2040 80% of the cars on the road will be EV's - In 10 years Solid State Batteries will start to be used. Look it up. Same 94 year old inventor who worked on Lithium Ion announced this new technology 4 months ago. 20 year life span. 3X faster charge times than Lithium Ion. 3X less space required for same range.

  • solarstacks
    solarstacks Год назад Nice video. Maybe they could note it's a very efficient ac induction motor. Much better than dc. An electric car is 4x more efficient than a,gas car. They did a good job oN the Regen braking but could also mention it reduces dust and brake,wear. The batteries will also last 20 to 30 with good cooling which all plugin have except the LEAF. Also most plugins charge,at night Off Peak when there is excess in three GRID with low transmission use and low,transformer loads. Many utilities dump excess since they have no storage. That is why off peak power cost less in a time of day plan. Electric also comes more,and more,from solar pv, Wind and Geo thermal so it's cleaner every day.
  • dementiapatient
    dementiapatient Год назад solarstacks Everything you said was right, but I feel like you should know that the 2013-present leaf changed it's battery systems to be on par with other EVs to last much longer. Tesla of course has the best numbers so far though.
  • Sal Cameli
    Sal Cameli Год назад Sorry that is not true, They made the Cells more resistant to heat but the 2011 to 2017 LEAFs all have the same flaw. And that flaw is Air-Cooling - Every other EV Manufacturer has used some sort of liquid cooling/heating which is much better at prolonging the Battery's life. In my 2013 I've lost over 25% of my range in only 4 years. That is really not acceptable. But I really can't blame Nissan. When they were designing the LEAF the only other people making an EV was Tesla and they were not sharing notes. Now Everyone knows that Air cooling is not the way to go.
  • Alexandre Andrianov
    Alexandre Andrianov Год назад Slightly off base. Many technologies were suppressed in order to delay transition to EV. EV 1 was already a practical local commuter vehicle that could easily solve the issues of noice and local toxic pollution in cities but it was killed by GM just when they saw that the new generation batteries were coming (NiMH). They quickly sold the patents for large capacity batteries to big oil that delayed the transition to EV by at least a decade.

  • Nirbhay Thacker
    Nirbhay Thacker Год назад lars exe, you seem to debate logically , but you do not understand many things, sure batteries have less energy density, there is absolutely no doubt that your statement is correct, but these cars compensate for it by having much, much larger power output for the same weight in motors as compared to engines, so engine weight is down, then the transmission, gearbox, separate regenerative breaking systems, separate batteries for starting, separate alternators, for battery charging, rectifiers for the alternator all get junked. This compensates for the lower energy density. And tesla is not a "boring" car, the top model accelerates to 100 in 2.3 seconds, that's not boring, and yes CO2 is "food" for plants, but right now we are making much more of the food than plants can eat, plants like IC engines are extremely inefficient, and yes if we were allowing the number of plants to increase, then perhaps it wouldn't be a problem, but making more food and killing the consumers of it, while the food being poisonous to us is madness.

The oil companies lose because they did nothing to innovate with the industry and mass market turned away from them. So they are left with barrels of oil they can't get rid of. But in the intern, a battery producer for these EVs will be the next corporate giant. Just ask companies like Phillip Morris. Remember all they tried to do to keep people buying cigarettes?
