Electric Car was past and future too for sure, because it is not to save petrol price or to only care about environment. It is that change for betterment which drives the humanity. We want all new mobile with new functionality even we are not utilizing all functions at full extents.
Let’s talk about today. If one want to buy electric car today, he must be a unique person in choice. But one may have one or more of objective and motive from below. You want electric car because
it running cost is low
it saves the environment
I love new technology
If your answer is ‘1’ or ‘2’ you are taking wrong decision at this stage, but is your answer is ‘3’, you must go for it.
When engineer develops new technology they are committed to lots of new features & benefits for safety, comfort and economy.
Now let’s compare the case with mobile phone in brief. It will give few idea about future of EVs. Because mobile is also portable device which work on battery like EVs.
Mobile comes in market with limited features and small display even not colored. So it required very small battery in term of energy.
After when technology introduced larger screen and so many features challenges of everyday charging mobile comes across. Because no one were used to put there mobile to charger every single day. Initially it was resisted by most.
But we know the fact, now a days we used to care our mobile like our baby and keeping all time with putting on charge timely.
So, point is that, currently we are not used to charge the vehicle at home or at charging station. But if one can image, we all are going to be habitual for charging vehicles at home and charging station.
Government also knows about initial requirement of charging station before anything and so promoting and planning accordingly.
So one is buying electric car today, they will definitely remain ahead in experience of new technology. Few benefits to electric car over petrol/diesel are as follow.
Electric Propulsion is very simple and most reliable. So maintenance will be very very less. Recall your last train travel, as most trains runs on electric motors now a days and we never heard about motor fails in between station. So if possible for such a large power, reliability and capability of motor is not an issue at all.
It eliminate requirement of gears, oil and differential which improves ground clearance ans overall stability too. Search for ABB electric car in formula race this year.
Most important is silent and vibration-less performance.
App based diagnostic support.
Shape adaptability and simplicity of electric propulsion system will results in endless shapes and models of EVs.
That’s it. Comment your view.
