How does an Electric Car work ? | Tesla Model S

  • Published on May 30, 2017
  • Electric cars are making big waves in the automobile world. These noise-free, pollution-free and high-performance vehicles are expected to make their I.C. engine counterparts obsolete by 2025. This video will unveil the hidden technologies behind the Tesla Model S, which recently became the world’s fastest accelerating car. We will see how electric cars have achieved superior performance by analyzing the technology behind the induction motor, inverter, lithium ion battery power source, regenerative braking and above all, the synchronized vehicle mechanism, in a logical, step-by-step manner. The working and features of Tesla car is explained here with help of animation.
    Please support us at so that we can add one more member to the team and will be able to release 2 educational videos/month.

    The fastest production car is 918 spyder not Tesla S and it’s not pollution free at all if we look at how batteries are being made and how electric power is being generated locally. It’s hard to actually measure the pollution.

    To learn engineering,
    Why would we support a channel that makes false and misleading statements. Saying electric cars are emission free is like saying guns don't cause deaths.
    Sure one day the electric grid could be made up of purely solar/hydro/wind etc. but it currently is not.....just like firearms could be used safely for target practice.
    Also keep in mind even if a grid is currently only 20% fossil fuel powered, as demand on the grid goes up the percent of fossil fuel used to meet the demands will go up as this is where the reserve powers are almost exclusively generated.
    In addition something you will never hear mentioned by these guys and Elon is the amount of additional greenhouse gas produced in the manufacture of the plug in electric cars....recent studies have shown that an internal combustion engine car can be driven for over 3 yrs before its contributions to greenhouse gases exceeds those additional gases produced in the building of a Tesla.
    Am I saying that a plug in electric is not a good idea? No, not at all I am just stating that we need to be looking a whole lot harder at fixing the grid before we try to convert a large portion of our fleet to plug in battery.

    • fyun89

      Actually increasing amount of renewable energy source is being used to meet those demands. But as of current, you're right on that it still uses fossil fuel. At least here in California, a lot of energy is from renewable source, so it makes sense here.

    First of all, thank you for sharing the video.They're evolving at this time, and they're going to continue to evolve after The environment was slowly destroyed while mankind was making time and convenience with the development of internal combustion engines.
    So electric cars are our duty to return to the beautiful, livable natural environment that our ancestors inherited earlier. 먼저 영상을 공유해주심에 감사드립니다.전기자동차는 이 시간도 진화중이고 앞으로도 계속 연구를 거쳐 진화하겠죠. 인류가 내연기관 개발로 편의와 시간을 버는 사이 환경은 서서히 파괴되었습니다.
    따라서 전기자동차는 앞서 우리 선조들이 물려주신 아름답고 살기 좋은 자연환경으로 되돌리는 우리들이 해야 할 의무입니다.

      As long as the batteries are not physically touching the bump, no (and may get damaged if the upward/downward force is so great that internals can move around, but unlikely). It would break/wear out the suspension faster which is the same for gasoline cars.

    "Pollution free" well technically they do because they run on electric and most of the power plants to use it uses coal to make electric so that's not true and that is my only complaint with electric but besides that I like them

      Renewable =/= pollution-free. Biomass is renewable and produces a ton of pollution. Nuclear is not renewable, yet produces negligible pollution. We need to be careful and more precise with the language we use to talk about energy.

  • Mohammad Tohidi
    Mohammad Tohidi 13 days ago

    High-performance batteries can help a lot in increasing the duration of the use of the car, and premium charging stations can help charge electric cars much faster. In other words, increasing the electric current and voltage for the Charge Stations can reduce the time of getting your electric vehicle charged. And this can really help especially if there was an emergency. Adding ‘fans’ and shafts on the underside of the car can help the car from overheating in dry, moist, or really hot weather conditions. I’m not sure if my statements can help, but I am just trying to give some small advice to be a tiny bit more innovative.

      They were. There were vintage motor operated cars. However, engine technology grew increasingly and fuel efficiency plus mileage grew. The biggest roadblock to electric vehicles wasn't the motor, it was long range batteries. Tesla had to work with cutting edge technology to combine inverter efficiency and battery cooling plus safety to even get a 300 mile range. Further going in to the future, the goal will be to reduce charging time.

    Awesome animations and very good executive summary. Couple of comments. I'd be surprised if Tesla uses a strictly sinusoidal driving waveform. I would guess they are using Space Vector Modulation, but I'd like to know for sure. Anyone? Also, I don't agree that an open diff is a great idea. Applying braking/power reduction as a means of traction control wastes power. I would swap that thing out for a Quaife ATB (Auto Torque Biasing) diff that will put all that power to the road.

    Democratic Party and Tom, I love all 3 of you including Trump. However, I am a financially struggling citizen who has benefited from the robust economy that was implemented within 2 months after Trump's inauguration. All the Democrat candidates I have seen are going to kill it or have no ideas to sustain it. So until that happens please allow Trump to complete the task. After all, we all need the taxes from a booming economy for all economic classes to offer people alternatives.

    (or) Could you suggest some software to create animations and to edit videos which should supported by linux operaring system and from open source.

    I can't afford windows licensed software and I don't want to use the cracked version which is illegal.

    Q: Where does the power come from to charge the car? A: Fossil fueled power plants that will need to be increased in size and numbers in order to charge millions of cars. Electric cars only shift the problem from the road to the countryside...unless we build nuclear power plants, which nobody wants within a hundred miles of their home. Another challenge...lithium.

    I was given patent rights from answering passwords to patent rights of my past-lives including Leonardo Divinci and Nicola Tesla, the answers given by Nicola Tesla bouncing the answers from a star unto me in front of men carry many suitcases, which got me patent rights to the electric motor. I first got experience with Formula 1 engineering Push-Rod suspension and putting brakes in front of brake discs to act as a water cap, as cars sweat from going too fast. before engineering Tesla Model S my first car I engineered I did research getting advice from People that knew luxury and from car critics car companies were avoiding, I first had to invent the Tesla Battery, while engineering the Tesla Model S I was thinking Domes and Triangles for structural strength...which worked because they told me your car broke the hydraulics from the structure pressure press safety, engineering the center of gravity to be low to the tires, for better stability and manuveurability which is all Tesla Models, and Transport Truck.

      Likely because it would be an all wheel drive car. And really the only difference between a motor and a genator is how much energy the engine puts out vs how much it recieves.
      Though I do not understand why they don't have generators in the front like something seperate from motors. Theres a lot of empty space wasted that can make that car travel further and I am pretty sure it wouldn't reduce the crumple zone by much.

    A battery pack replacement cost 1,000. And a new induction motor would cost 20,000$ and up when it is time for a replacement. But they can not be rebuilt. And have to be replaced much more often than any regular service vehicle. It seems like a electric service vehicle is much more of a money pit than it's diesel or gas competitors.
