Even though electric vehicles have now been around for a while, many people still aren’t that familiar with them. And while in many ways they are similar to gas-powered cars, in other ways they are very different. Let’s go over some of the Maserati parts that differ.

Engine

Perhaps the most important part of any car that runs on gas and oil is the engine. But, because you don’t need either of these fluids in an electric vehicle, this means you don’t need an engine. Instead, they run with motors and batteries.

Transmission

A six- or eight-speed transmission is common in most cars. But, due to the configuration of an electric car, they don’t need different speeds. All that is required is a single-speed transmission.
