Premium OEM and Aftermarket Parts Seller Continues Article Series

With the recent popularity forming around electric-powered vehicles, Torque King 4x4 has begun to focus on how these new vehicles compare to traditional internal combustion engines (ICE). The company boasts an impressive track record of supplying 4x4 owners with specialized aftermarket and OEM truck parts for more than 40 years. Dan Guarino, Torque King's owner and primary writer, has continued his comprehensive series of informational articles which discuss every aspect of electric vehicles - from a mechanic's to a driver's point of view. 

In this third article, Torque King explores the use of onboard power sources used in electric-powered vehicles, specifically batteries and fuel cells. With decades of experience under his belt, Dan has conducted thorough research on the development of power sources and how they have been put into use in vehicle manufacturing, including:

  • Recharge Capabilities
  • Load & Endurance Capabilities
  • Limitations 
  • New Developments

This article takes a deeper look into the problems currently facing battery electric vehicles (BEVs). The two primary sources manufacturers can use are batteries and fuel cells, each of which is met with its own distinct issues in the current manufacturing market. Dan outlines how batteries are the most commonly used power sources used today but face issues regarding climate, distance capabilities, heat production and hazardous waste production. Fuel cells, the other power sources, are currently facing problems with development. With this comprehensive overview, automotive enthusiasts have a professional resource that can help them decide if they can handle the issues that arise from switching from a traditional ICE to a BEV.
