Electric vehicles (EVs) are vehicles powered by one or more electric motors, using energy stored in rechargeable batteries or fuel cells. Unlike traditional internal combustion engine vehicles that rely on gasoline or diesel, electric vehicles run entirely or partially on electricity, resulting in reduced greenhouse gas emissions and dependence on fossil fuels.

Types of electric vehicles include:

  1. Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs): These vehicles are powered solely by electricity stored in rechargeable batteries. They produce zero tailpipe emissions and must be plugged into an external power source to recharge.

  2. Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs): PHEVs combine an electric motor with an internal combustion engine and a battery. They can be charged by plugging into an external power source and also have the option to run on gasoline or diesel when the battery is depleted.

  3. Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs): HEVs use both an internal combustion engine and an electric motor to propel the vehicle. Unlike PHEVs, they cannot be plugged in to recharge the battery; instead, the battery is charged through regenerative braking and the internal combustion engine.

  4. Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEVs): FCEVs use hydrogen fuel cells to generate electricity, which powers the electric motor. They emit only water vapor as a byproduct and have longer ranges compared to battery electric vehicles.

A career in electric vehicles is quite promising and spans various domains:

  1. Engineering: There's a high demand for engineers specializing in electric vehicle technology, including battery technology, electric motor design, power electronics, and vehicle integration. Roles may include electrical engineers, mechanical engineers, battery engineers, and systems engineers.

  2. Research and Development: With ongoing advancements in electric vehicle technology, there are ample opportunities for researchers and scientists to contribute to the development of more efficient batteries, improved electric drivetrains, and enhanced charging infrastructure.

  3. Manufacturing and Production: As the production of electric vehicles ramps up, there's a need for skilled professionals in manufacturing plants, including production managers, quality control engineers, assembly line workers, and logistics specialists.

  4. Supply Chain Management: Managing the supply chain for electric vehicle components, such as batteries, motors, and electronic components, requires expertise in procurement, logistics, and inventory management.

  5. Sales and Marketing: As the market for electric vehicles grows, there's a need for sales professionals, marketing managers, and customer service representatives with knowledge of electric vehicle technology and the ability to educate and attract consumers.

  6. Infrastructure Development: The expansion of electric vehicle infrastructure, including charging stations and grid integration, creates opportunities for professionals in urban planning, civil engineering, and energy management.

  7. Policy and Regulation: Governments around the world are implementing policies and regulations to promote electric vehicle adoption. Careers in this area include policymakers, environmental analysts, and sustainability consultants.

  8. Maintenance and Service: Electric vehicles require specialized maintenance and repair services, creating opportunities for automotive technicians, electricians, and service advisors with training in electric vehicle technology.

The electric vehicle industry offers a wide range of career opportunities across various sectors, from engineering and manufacturing to sales, marketing, and policy development. As the transition to electric mobility accelerates, the demand for skilled professionals in this field is expected to continue growing.

Course rating


Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on Reed Courses, many of which can be completed online.

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body's logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
