How do you start an electric vehicle (EV)? – Motor Biscuit | CarTailz

Electric vehicles (EVs) and gas-powered vehicles are similar in many ways. They look the same, can get you from point A to B, contain the same features and amenities, and usually have the same problems. In fact, the powertrain, which is the biggest thing separating the two in an electric vehicle, replaces an internal combustion engine with a battery pack. This begs the question, if your EV battery dies, could you bypass it like a conventional car?

Batteries age over time and need to be replaced. However, in some cases, car batteries will discharge before this happens and will not be able to start your car engine. You can leave the car running too long or leave the lights on overnight. So when you return to your vehicle and try to start it, the battery will run out of charge.
