One of the reasons why electric cars are gaining popularity is their enormous torque. Even the torque of electric cars outperforms the torque of turbo-engined cars though. Why is electric car torque so abundant, huh?
Different powertrain construction
The powertrain construction of electric cars is different from conventional cars that use an internal combustion engine (ICE). Electric cars do not use the usual acceleration transmission, so they are referred to as single-speed transmissions.
The electric motor is directly connected to the drive wheels via the drive shaft. So that the power from the engine can be directly channeled to the wheels. The result, very spontaneous acceleration!
Electric vehicles have instant power output
Electric vehicles have instant power output, so that the power obtained by the drive wheels is equivalent to the power generated by the inverter from the battery. In addition, the rotation of the electric motor that can reach tens of thousands of rpm can produce large torque instantly.
In contrast to conventional cars that use a transmission system, because the distribution of power is divided and there is a loss of power.
Voltage will decrease at high speed
The voltage on the electric vehicles will decrease at high speed. This is due to the gradual loss of power at high revs. But with the weakening of the rotation like this electric car can still be driven. Due to the unique nature of the torque is what causes a different driving sensation.
