What's the difference between a low-speed electric vehicles and an electric car

Low-speed electric vehicles are not as fast or technologically advanced as electric vehicles, and they are even more polluting to the environment.

1. Power battery

The maximum speed of low-speed electric vehicles is generally 70km/h, and most of them use lead batteries as power. The service cycle of lead batteries is about 2-3 years, and the replacement cycle is relatively short, which makes it impossible to meet relevant technical requirements. Moreover, the waste lead batteries have high recycling and utilization costs, and lead, sulfur and other pollutants are generated.


2. The license plate

Electric vehicles must be legally licensed and insured before they can be driven on the road.Low-speed electric vehicles cannot apply for a license because they do not meet the relevant requirements of electric vehicles, and the driver does not need a driving license.Low-speed electric cars are not allowed to enter the motorway as stipulated.


3. Security risks

There are major safety risks. For example, low-speed electric vehicles have no battery management system at all. Therefore, the battery is not overcharged or overdischarged during the use of the vehicle.Due to lack of professional training, drivers do not understand the traffic laws and are prone to accidents.


4. Charging mode

The charging mode of battery is different. Electric vehicles use external charging interface for charging. There are two charging modes: quick charging and slow charging.The batteries of low-speed electric cars can be charged directly with the household power supply, or taken out separately and charged independently without charging piles.
