What are the Pros and Cons of Electric Cars?

2 minutesread



Electric car battery technology is rapidly improving, with increases in range and reductions in charging times announced on an almost monthly basis. This suggests that a newly launched auto is probably going to be significantly more capable than one that went on sale, say, 18 months ago.

Electric cars cost a touch more to shop for than equivalent conventionally powered cars, but running costs are very likely to be considered but for a petroleum or diesel car, or maybe a hybrid. This can be partly due to electricity costs significantly but petrol or diesel, at the instant a minimum of. If you charge your car overnight, for instance, it could cost you as little as $7 for a full charge instead of the $65-105, or more, that you’ll dole out for a full tank of petrol or diesel.

The fact that electric cars haven’t any tailpipe emissions makes them exempt from road tax. They even have free access to some congestion charge zones and sit within the lowest Benefit-in-Kind (BiK) company-car income bracket, which is making electric cars increasingly popular as company cars. A Government grant of up to $6K is additionally available to assist with the acquisition of vehicles emitting but 50g/km of CO2 and able to drive for a minimum of 70 miles with zero emissions.



Despite the lower running costs and also the Government grant for each new electric vehicle purchase, electric cars are still costlier to shop for than the equivalent petrol, diesel, or hybrid car. This is often because automobile technology continues to be relatively new, and there are high costs involved in development and production, particularly of batteries. However, over time, technology and cars are likely to become significantly cheaper.

Another downside is what’s called ‘range anxiety’ – drivers’ fear of running out of power before they’ve reached a recharging point. Most mainstream electric cars have a maximum range of between 100-200 miles, so if you utilize your automobile just for short, local journeys, you won’t have anything to fret about, especially if you plug your car in whenever you’re reception.
