If given a chance, would you choose an electric car (EV)? This question could be quite confusing, especially to those who don’t know anything about that kind of car. For those who need inf, let us further discuss electric cars, particularly the reasons why they are becoming popular.
So, what is an electric car?
An electric car is a vehicle that uses an electric motor for propulsion rather than the use of a combustion engine that uses gaoline or diesel. Electric cars need to be recharged when their batteries are low, which can range from 50 to 250 miles.
You can recharge them at home two ways, either with a 240V charging stations or just plug them into the 120V wall circuit. Recharge times vary based on the two charging mehtods and also the EV’s onboard charger can affect the charging speed.
But, electric vehicles also have some features that a typical car has. One of these is the use of component speakers. You only need to learn how to install component speaker in electric vehicles and once done you can enjoy great music as well. The only difference of this car to others is the use of an electric motor and other electric controllers.
Why are electric cars popular?
There are many reasons behind the popularity of electric vehicles. First, they don’t emit any carbon dioxide or any of the pollutants that come from burning fossil fuels, so they are in favor with environmentally-friendly consumers.
Though electricity is primarily generated by burning fossil fuels, which releases carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, the use of EVs avoiods tailpipe CO2. Indeed, on a lifecycle carbon basis, electric cars are better options for the environment.
Also, most electric cars would use regenerative braking or the process wherein significant portion of the energy used once a car accelerates is captured as the car breaks. This helps increase the overall efficiency of an EV.
Electric cars are safe since they meet the same standards as ICE-powered cars. They have standard safety features and they are also relatively heavy. There is the fact that the heavier cars tend to see lesser injuries happen to the passengers than the lighter cars if there is a crash.
In addition, electric cars also have multiple safety layers built in to mitigate any possibility of getting a shock from the high-voltage batteries in the car. The battery pack is the floating system because it is kept electrically separate from the chassis of the car. And some of the other components might not only function once they detect even a very slight fault in the electricity going to the chassis.
With these safety features, you wouldn’t doubt the popularity of these electric cars compared to the standard cars we have in our society today.
