Electric cars are becoming increasingly popular because they do not emit carbon dioxide or other air pollutants. Why should you invest in such a vehicle? In this article, we discuss the advantages of electric cars.
Vehicles of the future
Electric cars, as the name suggests, are powered by electricity. Such a vehicle has one or more electric motors, powered by batteries and can be recharged at home or at designated locations (e.g. parking lots, gas stations).
There are also hybrid cars, which have both an electric motor and an internal combustion engine. You can also meet battery (or plug-in) hybrids that can be recharged like an electric car
Reliable technology that saves money
To drive 100 km in an electric car costs on average 8 PLN (the cost of electricity needed to cover this distance). However, to drive 100 kilometers in a car with a diesel engine, you have to reckon with the cost of 50 PLN. The price for fuel will be even higher (60 PLN or more) in the case of a gasoline vehicle.
People with the possibility of home charging of an electric vehicle, who use it mainly for small daily trips, can enjoy unlimited access to energy for their car. Connecting it to a power source will only take a dozen or so seconds!
It is also worth mentioning that in an electric vehicle, the number of parts subject to regular replacement is limited. With fewer moving parts, the electric motor can run hundreds of thousands of kilometers without failure. Moreover, such a vehicle manages the battery more efficiently, and its overall reliability is incomparable to fuel-based models. With these advantages, electric car users can save a lot of money
For music lovers, the quiet operation of an electric car translates into greater enjoyment of your favorite music. However, this is only a detail in the context of the overall driving comfort, which is provided by the perfect silence in the cabin. It is conducive to discussions and also provides a comfortable driving environment that is much less tiring than a journey in a classic car. The absence of a conventional gearbox eliminates the need to pay attention to engine speed when changing gears. This can be confusing at first, but it is another advantage associated with using an electric car.
In general, the environmental impact of electric vehicles is much lower than that of classic cars. However, this depends on the raw material supply chain, the manufacturing of the vehicle components, the source of electricity for charging, the use of the vehicle, and its recycling at the end of its useful life.
However, it is safe to say that an electric car does not emit chemical pollutants or CO2 when driven
