What to check when buying an electric VEHICLE?
If you are considering buying an electric car, the three points below are intended as a summary to help make things clearer.
- Electric motors are more energy-efficient than petrol or diesel engines, and they also minimize wasted energy by turning the vehicle off when it remains stationary and by charging the battery when braking.
- The electric driving range is a term used to describe the distance a vehicle can travel under electric propulsion alone. The electric range of a car depends on the specific make and model of vehicle.
With most manufacturers pushing for development into this area, drivers of electric cars can now benefit from increased driving distances.
For example, a Tesla Model X 75D can provide a driving range of between 237 and 295 miles depending on which model version is selected.
- Batteries are the main talking point for buyers of EVs as these need to be constantly charged. There are a few ways of charging your vehicle; you can use an ordinary home charger (120 V), an upgraded home charger (240 V) or charge it one of the various points in public areas like parking lots.
The home charging electric vehicle point is easily mounted to a wall. It either includes a connecting charging cable or a socket where a portable charging cable is plugged in. This is a charging option preferred by EV owners because it is faster and includes built-in safety features.There are Government incentives for installing home charging points and these values vary from country to country. Once these charging points are installed you only pay for the electricity to use to charge the vehicle. These home charging points are normally installed by professionals.
For longer distance roads trips, you can also use the fast charging units available at many petrol stations, shopping centres and parking lots. These are increasingly becoming more available making it even more convenient to charge the electric car on the go. The cost of using electric charging points will always be more cost-effective than filling up a regular petrol or diesel engine vehicle.
The time it can take to charge a battery can be anything from as little as 30 minutes to up to 12 hours but this depends on the speed of the charging point being used and the size of the EV battery that is present. A typical guide is that 100 miles range can be achieved with a 40-minute charge using a 50kW rapid charger.
As a guide, the average charging time from empty to full with a 7kW charging point will take about 8 hours for a 60kw battery.
Electric Vehicles and Hybrid Cars For Sale
Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) such as the Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid have both an electric motor and conventional petrol or diesel engine. Compared to a battery electric vehicle, this extends the total driving range but lowers the all-electric range. Owners of a plug-in hybrid vehicle will have the possibility to drive on electric drive power only if required to do so as the car can be charged with a standard electrical power outlet.
