There are a lot of questions in the minds of people who want to buy an electric car right now, such as car charging, battery price and car price. Samir Udeshi, who lives in Mumbai, wants to buy an electric car. His office is at BKC in Mumbai so he has to drive about 50-60 Km every day. Rising petrol prices no longer suit them so they want to buy an electric car but they think car charging will be a big problem for them so they are thinking what to do before buying an electric car? Samir says that every 200 – 250 Km. The car has to be charged. Sometimes when going to Lonavla or Mahabaleshwar Long Drive, there is a danger that if you need to charge, you will find charging points or stations on the road or not.
Questions like Sameer are happening to anyone today but the expert gives a direct and clear answer, “There are two types of charging available for car batteries, AC and DC. Direct charging allows fast charging and the battery is fully charged in an hour. The battery is fully charged in 8 hours with AC charging. The respective car company installs a charging system at home, which requires a point of 15 amperes. The prevalence of DC charging is also increasing. In addition, the electric car has a signal about how much battery it has. Just as you can see how much petrol or diesel is still in the tank in a petrol or diesel car, in the same way the battery in an electric car can be seen constantly on the display.
How much does charging cost? That question comes to us first! In fact, the cost of electricity to charge a battery is barely one rupee per kilometer. In comparison, CNG costs Rs 3, diesel Rs 5 and petrol Rs 7 more. In addition, most cars have a battery life of more than one and a half lakh Km. So many Km. It will cost a total of Rs 1.65 lakh to charge. If the same distance had been covered in petrol or diesel vehicles, it would have cost more than Rs 11 lakh. Naturally, this car will be cheaper in the long run and will also help reduce pollution.
There is a belief that electric cars and scooters are more expensive than petrol and diesel vehicles. Really the situation is somewhat different! It is definitely more expensive when buying an electric car for the first time but since then its maintenance cost is lower as compared to petrol and diesel and CNG vehicles. Not only that, in terms of average, the cost of an electric car is lower. Auto experts say that the maintenance cost of an electric car is less than one-fourth that of a conventional car. Many customers can’t afford electric vehicles because they are expensive, but nowadays everything from cellphones is available in installments. Now the question arises that we can get an expensive electric car even if we pay more, but are charging ww points and charging stations available in our country? According to a report by the Indian Energy Storage Alliance, the prevalence of charging stations in our country is increasing. The next 1-2 years will see you in every city and small town across the country. The central government, state government and private companies are also working hard for it. According to experts, those who are worried about charging points should study the early days of cars, at which time petrol pumps were not available as they are today. It developed slowly and systematically.
There is also an argument that even today we cannot fill petrol in the car ourselves, we have to go to the petrol pump. Whether the vehicle is running on petrol or CNG, but the point of charging electric vehicles will be in our homes and housing societies, wouldn’t it be easier !? In addition, charging points will be available at public places like car parking, shopping malls. More charging points will be available in the near future than there are petrol pumps in the country at present.
The only question in the electric car right now is a little confusing, and that is the battery life of the car! When electric cars have to be replaced with batteries after a few years, people think that petrol cars are the best.
Experts say that currently the flower charge vehicle is 250 Km. If running, it is 200 Km after some years. Will run and gradually the battery will get old so the mileage will decrease. On the other hand, a new battery is expensive and costs Rs. More than 6 lakh. However, the Tata company has given an 8-year guarantee on the battery of their car.
Now comes the world economy. One of the major economies in the world is dependent on crude oil. At such a time, if electric vehicles are adopted everywhere, a new world will be seen. The future of the countries which are already adopting various ways to generate electricity is bright. Renewable energy will be the gold of the future. One of the factors behind rising inflation today is the rising prices of petrol and diesel. Transportation plays a big role when it comes to the rise in prices of everyday consumer goods. Reducing the cost of transportation from electric vehicles will not have a direct impact on inflation. Periodically it will help boost the economy. Sources for electricity are also set to grow in the future. Several alternatives are emerging to generate electricity. Solar and wind energy are set to prove to be the biggest sources of the future.
