What is an electric vehicle?
An electric vehicle uses an electric motor instead of an internal combustion engine. The motor is powered by a large battery pack rather than conventional fuel types such as petrol or diesel. Therefore, the motor must be charged in a public charging station or by a wall outlet at home. What are the benefits to driving an electric car rather than a conventional fuelled car?
Cheaper – There are much lower running costs to driving an electric car. The electricity required to charge the battery works out at roughly one third the cost per kilometre, compared to buying fuel for a comparable vehicle. Of course this benefit differs per vehicle and base energy prices do change. There are also tax benefits for organisations who choose electric vehicles for their fleet.
Maintenance – The cost of maintaining an electric car is also cheaper, mainly because there are less moving parts. There are less fuel components such as pumps, pipework and tanks and no expensive exhaust systems, starter motors, fuel injection systems or radiators. You will need a replacement battery at some point, but generally speaking there is less wear and tear on parts and hence less to go wrong with an electric car.
Environment – There are no vehicle fumes from the exhaust and hence no pollution from CO2 emissions. You are also using a renewable energy to charge the vehicle and you even have the option of using solar power where available, rather than charging off the grid. The interior and bodywork of electric vehicles tends to utilise recycled materials also, and these lighter materials contribute to better power efficiency on the road.
Safety – Because electric vehicles don’t carry fuel there is less risk of fire or explosion, and the battery tends to be located in the floor of the car. This allows a lower weight distribution, which means electric cars drive very smoothly round corners and the handling generally is superior.
Perhaps the most significant benefit to driving an electric vehicle is that technology is improving all the time, with such cars becoming faster and more powerful, but also smoother to drive, more economical, quieter and a more enjoyable drive in general.
Now is a great time to make the switch to electric vehicles with Pink Car Leasing. Let us find the right deal for you and we’re confident once you go electric, you will never look back.
