In many of the greatest metropolis on Earth, the mobility of traditional vehicles has been limited because of the pollution they generate. To regulate traffic and pollution levels, town councils and other public administration organisms have limited the negative impact of these vehicles by marking their license plates depending on the year they were produced and their power source. This initiative has empowered other means of transportation: bicycles, scooters and other kinds of electric vehicles.
More and more often, we find brands specialized on electric vehicles, and it is very common that those that are still producing tradicional models begin to include the electric vehicles in their spectrum. Although sustainable mobility is more and more appreciated by the users, variables like the vehicle’s autonomy and the ‘refuel’ cost often generate doubts in possible buyers. This situations prevents this specific market from growing steadily. This article will discuss the main obstacles blocking the way that the electric car is following to settle as a competitive option before tradicional vehicles working with petrol.
Those who have firmly decided to renounce to the use of any vehicle depending of fossil fuel will be able to appreciate the economic difference between electricity and all the traditional sources of power. We will also present various methods to charge electric vehicles at home and at other specific points, so the user does not have any problem when the time to charge the car comes.
If we dream with a green mean of transportation that can be used for any journey, the most commendable would be the electric vehicle. Moreover, you can always find a way to charge your car with electricity that has been generated through renewable methods.
To cover 100 kilometers with an electric car has an estimate cost of 2 euros. However, we would have to take into account the kind of battery, the tanks’ capacity, the electricity rate and the time it’s charging (in proportion, the longer you charge it, the cheaper it is). This means that the cost is as variable as it is for traditional vehicles.
As we have mention before, there are many ways to ‘refuel’ your electric vehicle. The most common ones are the ‘electrolineras’ (geographical locations specifically design to charge them) or doing it at home. This solutions will evolve as times goes by; however, there are already many modern ways to be effective at our own property. This systems are specially easy to install at single-family homes, because the process does not affect the rest of the community. On the other hand, if you wish to install a service point within your community, you can set it at the garage and have it ready for others who decide to purchase an electric vehicle. All these factors can be consulted at your car dealership, where you will be informed about all the details related to the vehicle’s source of power.
