How come an EV still requires a 12V lead acid battery? Does an EV has an alternator to charge it or is it charged by the regenerative system? There isn't a lot of information about it online.


Too much to think about...

which is why carbon tax was introduced. this will be a tax on the upstream of power generation.

when it comes to milking money from the population the govt is more creative and resourceful that you would even think.
