An electric car is an automobile that is propelled by one or more electric motors, using electrical energy stored in batteries or another energy storage device. Electric motors give electric cars instant torque, creating strong and smooth acceleration.
The first electric cars appeared in the 1880s. Electric cars were popular in the late 19th century and early 20th century, until advances in internal combustion engines and mass production of cheaper gasoline vehicles led to a decline in the use of electric drive vehicles. The energy crises of the 1970s and 1980s brought a short-lived interest in electric cars; although, those cars did not reach the mass marketing stage, as is the case in the 21st century. Since 2008, a renaissance in electric vehicle manufacturing has occurred due...

Singapore's Land Transport Authority recently hit the city state's first Model S owner with a fine of S$15,000 (£7,500) for excessive emissions and ranked the all-electric saloon in the dirtiest, highest-polluting category of vehicles than can be... Reported by Channel News Asia and picked up by US magazine Road & Track , Tesla fan Joe Nguyen had spent months trying to legally import a Model S bought in Hong Kong into Singapore, expecting to receive a government grant worth around £7,500 once... The car is the first Tesla in the country and so is the first to be tested by the transport authority, who concluded that it consumes as much as 444 watt-hours per kilometre driven – the equivalent of a petrol car producing 222g/km CO2, putting it... The argument is over upstream emissions, which argues that electric cars are only as clean as the electricity grids they run off,.
Buying a Tesla will get you green kudos in plenty of places but not Singapore, where the carbon emissions surcharge slapped on a Tesla has caught the attention of the auto-maker's founder Elon Musk. Joe Nguyen imported a used Tesla Model S P85 from Hong Kong in July 2015, hoping to have the first Tesla vehicle to hit Singapore's roads. VICOM, a private vehicle inspection provider that tested the Tesla for Singapore's transport authority, found that Nguyen's 2014 Model S had an equivalent CO2 emission of 222g per kilometer. The emissions were calculated using a "grid emissions factor" that puts a value on the emissions created by energy use - in the Tesla's case, when it converts electricity into power.
