Electric and hybrid vehicles are now the present, not the future. This straightforward and highly illustrated full colour textbook is endorsed by the Institute of the Motor Industry and introduces the subject for further education and undergraduate students as well as technicians.

This new edition includes a new section on diagnostics and completely updated case studies. It covers the different types of electric vehicle, costs and emissions, and the charging infrastructure, before moving on to explain how hybrid and electric vehicles work.

A chapter on electrical technology introduces learners to subjects such as batteries, control systems and charging which are then covered in more detail within their own chapters. The book also covers the maintenance and repair procedures of these vehicles, including fault finding, servicing, repair and first-responder information. Clear diagrams, photos and flow charts outline the charging infrastructure, how EV technology works, and how to repair and maintain hybrid and electric vehicles.

Optional IMI online eLearning materials enable students to study the subject further and test their knowledge. It is particularly suitable for students studying towards IMI Level 2 Award in Hybrid Electric Vehicle Operation and Maintenance, IMI Level 3 Award in Hybrid Electric Vehicle Repair and Replacement, IMI Accreditation, C&G and other EV/Hybrid courses.

WHY ELECTRIC?

TRAIN-THE-TRAINER WORKSHOP

Electric Vehicle Training for the Future of Automotive Technology

As Electric Vehicles continue to grow in terms of market share, it is important for students and young people to understand the basic principles that go into EVs and automotive technology.

From the basics of electricity, Ohm's Law, DC Circuits, fundamental Electrical Safety, Relays, etc., it's becoming paramount to a student's success in the automotive, STEM, and manufacturing fields to be comfortable and familiar with electric concepts and technologies.

Technologies continue to evolve and grow at an exponential speed, and systems - especially in the automotive industry - will continue to adopt newer and more advanced technologies; therefore, we must prepare students now with a solid foundation.

BYO

Much like previous generations built transistor radios, or computers, or similar, our Electric Vehicle kits for building street-legal EVs is pushing student interaction, understanding, and interest like never before!

No amount of visual aids, textbook reading, or demonstrations can do quite for a student's knowledge and retention what building an Electric Vehicle from the ground-up does.
