The battery-powered models are emission-free, have lower operating costs, allow free parking and offer an especially smooth ride.
Electric cars are the most recent addition to the automotive world, because the modern battery-powered vehicle arrived in Europe in 2011. But, despite their youth, they have entered the market strongly and are gradually consolidating. Although their beginnings were somewhat hesitant, due to their higher prices and limited autonomy, in just a decade they have managed to triple their range, reduce their cost and thus clear most of the doubts they generated, convincing more and more drivers.
The absence of emissions in circulation is its biggest argument, but not the only one. And it is that they also present lower operating costs than combustion cars.
Its biggest differentiating argument. Electric cars do not produce emissions during operation and are therefore environmentally friendly vehicles. They do not expel anything into the atmosphere, neither CO2 nor nitrogen oxides, and in fact they lack even an exhaust pipe. These characteristics postulate them as the ideal models for daily circulation in the city and its surroundings, which is where the greatest amount of pollution is usually concentrated.
Lower costs of use
Electric vehicles are somewhat more expensive than combustion vehicles, although the price differential is getting smaller and smaller and it also tends to be offset by the lower cost of travel. And as their mechanics are simpler, they tend to break down less and have less intensive and more affordable maintenance.
Autonomy on the rise
Range was one of the main negative points of the first zero-emission vehicles, but research with batteries has managed to improve their energy density and, therefore, the range they provide. The first electric car of the modern era (2011) offered just 160 kilometers of range, but today it is already close to 600.
The electrical mechanics deliver all their power and torque from almost idle, and this aspect is appreciated when leaving from a standstill, as at a traffic light, for example, because battery-powered models respond earlier than combustion models and start the march with greater vigor. . At the same power, a battery vehicle accelerates better than a combustion one. But its immediacy of response has other associated advantages, because it allows you to join a highway or overtake with great ease, without having to worry about which gear you are taking or whether the engine is at an optimum rev point, as in the case of the combustion cars: step on the gas pedal, and voila.
An ever-expanding recharging network
Not so long ago this was a point that was among the buts of electric cars, but a network in continuous and rapid expansion has made it a point in favor and their number continues to grow.
