Carmakers promote electric car production
Electricity will be the future of the automotive industry. More and more countries are becoming more involved in the development of electric transport. According to a study by Boston Consulting Group, the number of electric and hybrid cars in circulation will increase by 2030. It will virtually dominate that of gasoline and diesel cars.
As previously announced, there is a growing number of offers for electric and hybrid cars, even internationally. Manufacturers are competing in the manufacture of more efficient vehicles with a large economy. Several models of powerful vehicles with an attractive design will appear on the market over the next ten years.
For example, Renault plans to offer 8 new electric cars by 2022. The German company BMW will produce 25 100% electric models by 2025.
Soon, Beijing plans to ban the manufacture and marketing of gasoline and diesel vehicles. In 2019, Chinese automakers will also be forced to fill a quota on the number of hybrid or electric cars produced. Here is some news that will electrocute the professionals in foreign car manufacturing who are planning to conquer the Chinese market.
Using an electric vehicle with low emission of CO2 reduces air pollution
Electric cars currently on the market can not be considered clean vehicle because any vehicle has an impact on the environment, both when its life cycle.
But researches show that driving an electric car itself is far more environmentally friendly than a conventional car. Indeed, in terms of global warming, the study shows that electric cars contribute to reducing it by 10 to 24% compared to conventional cars.
Level carbon balance, the electric car with zero-emission of Carbon dioxide undeniably has good results. An electric vehicle emits from 2 to 3 times less greenhouse gas than equivalent thermal vehicles.
In the end, for an average life cycle estimated at 150,000 km, the electric car emits around 9 tonnes of CO2, compared with 22 tonnes for a diesel vehicle and around 27 tonnes for a gas-powered car.
The electric vehicle is economical by using fuel cell
An electric vehicle does not cost more than a thermal vehicle. Taking into account insurance, fuel, financing, maintenance and depreciation costs, electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids are actually more economical than fossil fuel vehicles despite an initial purchase cost higher.
The electric car has long had a prohibitive purchase cost, especially because of the price of its battery pack. Good news, it finally democratizes under the impetus of car manufacturers! More affordable models are emerging, some of which offer you the option of renting the battery rather than buying it. Added to this is a reduction of 30 to 40% in the cost of maintenance compared to a thermal vehicle, whose combustion engine includes hundreds of moving parts, against a single rotor for the electric motor. Finally, the price of electricity remains well below 3€ per 100 kilometres, an ultra-competitive rate compared to the cost of gasoline and diesel.
