An introductory note
The world soon is going to move away from the vehicles on the basis of the ICE or Internal Combustion Engine. And electric is the future. With some of the leading vehicle manufacturers leading the way on the things that are possible with the electric vehicles, more and more companies are following the suit.
Now it has been assumed that fully autonomous driving is going to have a large effect on our way of living as the vehicle itself did. Therefore, it is worthy of getting “wow” reactions and it also starts to lay the groundwork for the things that are coming next.
The change is evident
Although there are some challenges, which are restricting the implementation of these electric vehicles, the makers are trying to combat those challenges.
In the first world countries, the energy department along with other agencies is trying to develop the recharging and battery technology.
The USA government is even offering financial support to the leading vehicle manufacturers to manufacture or develop commercial electric vehicles. It is thought that this type of investment will spur the economies of scale while reducing the cost of units and also by making the new technologies viable.
Benefits that the electric vehicles will offer:
Electronic vehicles actually come with a range of benefits, which might not be obvious immediately. Let’s have a look at those:
- Driving these vehicles is insanely fun as these can produce the highest torque at zero RPMs. This means that these vehicles can snap to life just at the touch of the accelerator.
- Electric vehicles come with the direct driving feature and therefore there is no requirement of complex gearbox or transmission. Here power is used quietly and smoothly and the acceleration also feels completely effortless.
- Operating the electric cars is really simple. Besides, there is nothing to crack, rust, break or blow out. Apart from that, there is no filter, no oil to change, no fluids, no clutch and no crazy mechanical systems.
- Apart from being an important mode of transportation, the electric vehicles also work as the energy sources, which can directly be plugged into the grid. This will help to address the challenge of “demand response”.
A concluding note
Apart from the benefits mentioned above, the electronic vehicles will also have a dramatic impact on different areas of our life like the vehicle industry in general, the climate conditions in different cities and in the distribution of energy across the globe.
