What kind of battery will you use to power your electric vehicle?
The answer depends on how you plan to use it.
As the EPA has noted, the most common battery in an electric vehicle is a lithium-ion battery.
That’s the battery used in your car’s electric motor.
But the best choice for the average car owner is the NiMH (nickel-metal hydride) battery, which can store a lot more energy than a lithium battery and requires less energy to produce the same amount of power.
A lithium-polymer battery is the most efficient choice, but that requires a larger battery pack.
So, for your average driver, the choice between NiMH and LiPo battery will depend on what you’re using the car for.
