It’s no understatement to say that electric vehicle (EV) technology represents the transportation mode of the future. Don’t believe us?
Consider These Facts About the EV Market
Industry experts predict that most, if not all, new EVs will carry a lower sticker price than comparable vehicles powered with an internal combustion engine (ICE) by 2024. Electric vehicles won’t just be cheaper to buy, though, but also less expensive to own and maintain. This, according to experts, will drive EV sales to a point that they make up over half of all vehicles sold by 2040.
Besides Price and Maintenance, What’s the Big Deal about Electric Vehicles?
Besides the price advantage EVs will gain in coming years and their overall lower maintenance requirements, these vehicles have three other significant advantages over their ICE-powered counterparts:
Electric Vehicles Make Less Noise
Gasoline engines are large, complicated and noisy. They also require numerous auxiliary components to supplement and support their operation, creating additional noise and maintenance needs.
EVs, on the other hand, are powered by extremely quiet, comparatively small electric motors that require far fewer auxiliary components. In fact, EVs are so quiet that the federal government has passed a rule requiring them to emit artificial noise at speeds of up to 18.6 m.p.h. so pedestrians and cyclists can hear them.
EVs are Quicker, More Responsive
When a driver presses an EV accelerator, the vehicle reacts more quickly compared to an ICE-powered vehicle. Forward movement is generally more immediate and pronounced, making these vehicles more satisfying to drive.
Electric Vehicles can be ‘Fueled’ at Home
Imagine rarely, if ever, needing to stop at a gas station during the course of a normal day. Imagine leaving home each morning always assured of enough “fuel” to take you through an entire day of normal driving without stopping. Even if you did run low on fuel at an inconvenient time, imagine being able to drive straight home anyway and “gas up” there. Such fueling flexibility will never happen with ICE vehicles. Many electric vehicle owners, on the other hand, already enjoy home fueling convenience.
