In a gasoline engine, all of the parts must work together for it to run smoothly. In an electric vehicle (EV), there are a host of technologies that must complement each other to make electrification a practical choice.
Even if you know how a gasoline engine works, EVs bring a whole new set of components, and a different language to describe them.
