All About electric cars

As we become more environmentally conscious, eco-friendly vehicles have emerged as an attractive alternative to regular fuel vehicles. These not only let users enjoy high fuel efficiency but also allow them to leave a smaller carbon footprint. Global electric vehicle sales figures for Quarter 1 2016 highlight that plug-in sales in 2016 totaled to 180,500 units till date. This is approximately an increase of 42% as compared to the same period of time in 2015.

The above figures, it should be noted, are with regard to all-electrics (EVs), plug-in hybrids (PHEVs), and also light-commercial electric vehicles.

Advantages of Electric Vehicles

  • Reducing Carbon Footprint

    The environmental impact of an electric car is zero which means you're reducing your carbon footprint
  • Cost Saving

    Being green, efficient and clean does not mean that the 'mileage' of Evs is compromised.
  • Clean Environment

    Electric cars put curb on noise pollution. Electric vehicles do not have a tail pipe, they give off no emissions.

Advantages of using an EV
Advantages of using an EV
Electric vehicles today have become more than just a growing trend or something that is fashionable to be seen in. In the face of growing pollution concerns from traditional power sources, they have been called the future and in the next 10-15 years the ratio of electric to ICE could switch sides very easily. Every major automaker now has a focussed EV programme and we can expect to see them across the price range very soon. When the time comes you too should switch to electric vehicles, and here are some advantages of doing the same.
  1. You are conserving the environment
    While the batteries, that are an integral part of an EV, can debatably be thought of as polluting, emission free usage means you are giving nature a chance to combat the ill effects of what has taken place so far. In a busy and crowded city road your electric car is a clean green zone among the other groups of heat shimmers.
  2. Savings on costs
    While the battery powering the EV may cost a lot, it is an investment that comes to fore only after 5 years or more. What you save instead is the cost of filling up the car with fossil fuels. Sure, you would have to pay for the electricity at home but even that with renewable sources is still more cost effective. Moreover, the maintenance cost of EVs is more than 60% lesser than that of IC engine cars, purely because less moving parts mean lesser chances of parts getting damaged.
  3. Savings on time
    Long queues at petrol pumps and with the recent demonetisation, frequent troubles to find cash, these aren’t things that EVs let you worry about. With easy home charge options you wouldn’t have to struggle with fuel, cash or time shortage. In more developed countries the public infrastructure for charging has also matured to become wide spread and dependable.
  4. Reduce noise pollution
    Yes, sure we all love our loud cars as they make our special places warm and excited. But to have to take this on a daily basis on crowded roads and that too with people literally leaning on their horns, no way! Silence is peace of mind and that is something an electric car can give you in spades thanks to its quiet nature.
  5. Looks
    In the nascent stage of car building everything looked quirky or was long and beautiful. That is where EVs are today as you have a wide range like the eccentric Mahindra e2o or the practical e2oPlus, going right up to the Maserati inspired Tesla range of cars. If looks are in your books then EVs are the thing to go for as they do stand out against the run-of the mill cars.
