Electric cars – What are the advantages?
Cleaner environment, renewable energy, reduced noise pollution, lower running costs – in plain language: Better for our planet.
One of the biggest advantages of driving EVs is the impact on our environment. Pure EVs have no tailpipe, so they don’t emit any exhaust gases, which reduces local air pollution particularly in congested cities.
In addition EVs have more responsive acceleration and regenerative braking when easing off the accelerator. They tend to have a low center of gravity, which improves handling, comfort and safety,
On average, an electric car costs less than 1,3 Euro to drive 100 miles vs 11.05 for a petrol car. There’s also cheaper service and maintenance plus low or no vehicle tax.
In over a year, just one electric car on the roads can save an average 1.5 million grams of CO2. That’s the equivalent of four return flights from London to Barcelona.
