There's Things That Need To Be Addresses ...
Electrical machines flourish in popularity, especially now when Tesla has made its model 3 very affordable machine. Manufacturers, such as Nissan, Hyundai, and Kia, double doubling availability available electric vehicles that look good, have a decent range and can sit a whole family.
Over the past 10 years, the Tech electric car jumped from the point of view of the battery density, range and overall accessibility. Nevertheless, today in 2021 electric cars face several main problems that are not that gasoline and diesel cars.
Anyone can throw the Tesla with their last model S or X of cars and say that "electric cars become like gas cars. Some can get 400 miles of assortment and charge up to 200 miles in 15 minutes. This is an exception, not a rule, most electric vehicles do not go almost so far and charge much longer.
Let's break the main problems that it is worth noting so far.
Winter Range VS Summer Range
The great thing about gases and diesel cars (except for refueling in minutes) the ability to control the very same range from full to empty, regardless of temperature outside.
One of the main problems with all rechargeable electric cars is a noticeable reduction in the range, even during calm and reproduction. Strange me?
As the owner of the Chevrolet EV bolt, I know how to drive a car to get the maximum range. The car is designed for 238 miles of the range on the full battery, but it was not long after I realized that I realized that the number would not be achieved if I carefully did not led to the car and in rather warm conditions.
As for, why electric cars work poorly in cold weather, I will cover a separate post, but the main removal is here - this is a sharp cut in the range when the weather lives below freezing. If you wanted to know how much, how about up to 40% lower than you start.
Since rechargeable technologies reach, I firmly believe that this problem will figure out and will not be on someone's thoughts.
At the very least, at least, people approached me and asked: "How much time needs you to rose ... I mean charging, 10, 15 minutes?" ... I told them, it actually takes so little for me 50 minutes to get 80% or up to 45 hours in my house 110-volt power supply.
Their enthusiasm usually dies, and they sorry for my situation, thinking why I'm going with this.
The reality of the substance is yes, everything will become better with time, and the charging time will be reduced by a significant reserve in the near future.
Charging the electric vehicles currently can represent the problem for people who cannot adapt to the lifestyle of life with EV. This is definitely a slower pace of life. Charging most EVS using 220 volts will give you a complete charge in just 3-4 hours anywhere from 10 to 22 hours (depending on the size of the battery).
Chargers electric vehicles using 440-volt systems during road trips add considerable travel time. For example, a trip from Washington DC to Little Rock, Arkansas may take 17 hours in an ordinary car. Add about 8-12 charging stops into a mix, and the trip can easily take 7-10 hours longer. Tesla is currently becoming closer to the speed of "regular car refill", as everything can get. Porsche also has an insanely high charge rate (compared to all the rest in the market), allowing you to charge up to 50 miles in just 5 minutes.
While charging speed is slow, be optimistic. They will improve!
COST TO PURCHASE.
Looking at the current market cheap, reliable vehicles, you will find endless deliveries of Honda, Toyota, Hyundai and many others in less than 10,000 dollars. One of the greatest advantages of gas for gas is their huge offer of them.
It is easy to preach the amount of money that can be saved, drove the electric car until they check the price of the new Hyundai Kona EV or Nissan, and some have second thoughts. Of course, without government incentives and tax discounts, prices for electric cars are on bare minimal, 25-30 thousand dollars Grand New. Not quite accessible, is it?
Electrical machines came a long way when it comes to the price. On the market you can snatch several 75-100 miles of EV assortment in less than 10 thousand dollars (excellent for local driving). Nevertheless, if you want the real 200+ miles of the range, the fact that you can take a serious journey, expect to pay anywhere from 25 to 30 thousand dollars. Like China, the United States has many electric cars, many of which you can find next to it.
If you do not know the market in a few short years, most ECU will cost about half of the fact that they are now. Chevrolet Bolt EV and Nissan Leafs are excellent examples of this.
Finding Charge Stations.
You must give Tesla Credit for the most reliable charger on Earth (at the moment). One of the most common questions about electric vehicles is: where is the charging stations?
The truth is told, at the moment, if you do not live in the metropolitan city, you will find charging stations every 40-80 miles. Some cities have several quick chargers, but at the moment network, such as Electrifify America, are holding a strong retention in the United States and Canada to have a strong competitive charging network that any electric vehicle can be used. We say that the network is not without his problems. I know first-hand.
Electrifify America has 24/7 customer service, it's great. However, if you arrive at the charging station as Electrifier America, and it does not want to initiate a charging session ... You may be in trouble. In many places, that at EA station is the only fast charger in the vicinity. A dealer or two or two stations 220 volts on a dealer or public park, otherwise you may be insured or you will have to expand the trip for several hours (not to mention additional headaches).
The search for charging stations becomes better, especially with an effortful applications, such as plugin. With proper planning, you can drive around the United States in the Non-Tesla car. There is a high probability that you will encounter some charger that gives you a problem. So that your experience is as smooth as possible, carry a level 2 charger, which you can easily connect to the NEMA 14-50 (or in the same way).
Difficulty Finding a Technician
If you ever took the car into the mechanics, you know that dealers are charged much more than their own owners. In some cases, dealers will not provide maximum services and still charge you more. If you do not have a high-quality car, an independent store can save you a ton of money.
Repair of an electric vehicle outside the main headlights, brakes, tires and steering components require specialized knowledge about the factory. Since there are very few stores in electric vehicles that can work on electric vehicles, your options are limited to the trains to the dealer.
Electrical machines reduce maintenance, but after the element of the high dollar is bad, you better have a guarantee to prepare for the coverage of the tab.
THERE ARE LIMITED OPTIONS
When it comes to have options at the moment, currently not so much with electric vehicles, because there is from traditionally based on gas. Want an electric minivan if you live in the United States, the closest thing you can buy is Chrysler Pacifica Phev, and this car is not even completely electrical (plugged hybrid). If you are traveling to Europe, you can buy Nissan E-NV200 and Mercedes EQV. Transition to an SUV with several options options. The gold standard for an SUV is a Tesla X and Audi E-Tron model. If you want something more compact, you can choose between the Tesla Y model, Ford Mustang Mach-E, Volvo XC40, Hyundai Kona EV, Kia Niro EV and Jaguar I-Pace.
There are many hatchback and sedans, but when it comes to trucks ... at the moment there are no available. Some promising vehicles arriving in the next few years are electric, Rivian R1T F-150, Rivian R1T and Hummer EV.
The lack of choice can be negative at the moment, but I can argue, by 2025, perhaps will be 5 times the possibilities available from manufacturers with which you are already familiar.
Since the Ford F-150 is the most popular truck in the US, imagine how popular electric F-150 is popular.
Dangerous for Diy Technicians
You are an electrician if now ... you can make your life in danger, working on your own machine. These electric cars are not jokes, orange wires throughout electrical and hybrid vehicles carry a very high voltage.
Work on the electric car beyond just such things like tires, brakes, light bulbs and car radio can be a risky thing. The great thing about electric cars Currently you can check your car's health (and batteries) using a simple Bluetooth OBD2 adapter. Such applications, such as Pro torque, can give you access to car battery and show you at a very basic level, as it rises, what other errors appear and much more.
Is it all doom and gloom?
With all what was mentioned above, let me share with you, a forecast that I see based on the newslet.
The industry develops very quickly, similar to how the last century gave us so much from the point of view of abundant technology, the ability to become rich and with such additional possibilities that did not exist before.
Electrical Cars Ten years ago were limited to Nissan Leaf 24kwh, Tesla Roadster 1.0 and Mitsubishi Imisev.
Today in 2021 we have many more electric vehicles and hybrid plugins to choose which are very user-friendly. It was just one decades, as everyone really soared, you must give a loan where we have come so far.
Without a doubt, in the next few years it looks very optimistic with the electric and plugins of hybrid cars - this is the future. You heard it before, not yes?
All from Tesla Roadster 2.0, Tesla Cybertruck, Pickup Ford F-150, and much more in the store for everyone. Charging infrastructure comes better every year, and some current electric vehicles can charge up to 80% in less than 30 minutes (Tesla and Porsche still take victory).
Did you know that Volvo promised to make all your cars 100% electric for 2030? Yes, some manufacturers are serious about this growing change. Be customized, there is news about electric vehicles every day.
