How does an Electric Car work ? | Tesla Model S

Published on May 30, 2017 5,421,550 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.

  • Miles Jr
    Miles Jr 8 месяцев назад A single gasoline engine can provide all wheel drive , so can a diesel. But I wonder if a single electric motor can provide all wheel drive too. Unlike Tesla cause they use 2 electric motors to get AWD. Please reply if you have any info.
  • Bill A
    Bill A 8 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 7 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 7 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. ;)

    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.
  • Learn Engineering

  • brinbrin62 62200
    brinbrin62 62200 7 месяцев назад Indeed, and the demand for electricity would increase tremendously if a fraction of the cars were replaced by or converted to EV. Replacing oil burning by coal burning is not an option. Even if you're a climate change denier, please consider the pollution, as coal burning is not clean AT ALL. So we may have to resort to nuclear power plants, as solar and wind would never be sufficient to match the demand. and do not forget there is a whole industry to dismantle, and a new one to rebuild nearly from scratch. Gas stations. Repair stations. Factories. Installing power lines to supply homes. Etc, etc. but I imagine cities without the noise and the smell of oil engines... Silence and fresh air. No more oil stains on the puddles.

  • Dash
    Dash 6 месяцев назад Solar and wind technologies are advancing efficiency outputs every year. The real issue is with battery storage and transportation of power/energy. Having a whole industry to dismantle will take time but it has to start eventually. Hopefully we continue the expansion of our EV infrastructure as it is one of the main issues holding drivers back from switching over (and charge time and range). If we get more adoption of infrastructure, the car industry will follow with more focus on EV consequently making the market more competitive and cost effective, and in turn - more EV owners. A lot of issues to solve, but no point in beating a dead horse (the dead horse being non renewable resources) more than we need to if we know the direction need to go.
