Often when people envision charging an electric car, they still imagine it being like a petrol, where you stand by your car holding the nozzle of the gas pump into the fuel cap, except you do it for LONGER!? Nope. You don’t have to put any effort into charging your electric car unless your adamant on getting free electricity every time and driving 13 miles to a Tesco or deliberately looking for an employer with electric vehicle chargers. You just plug it in when you do time lengthy activities – which EVERYONE does. Whether its while you sleep, while you’re working, shopping, etc. everyone has the time to charge their electric vehicle unless you're in a big rush! Obviously this does make a difference for those who transport heavier goods for longer miles but that’s why we don’t hear about electric lorries very much and even then, frequent stops on very long journeys are essential.
Another concern that people have is the way the car actually works. People almost believe that an electric car is like a robot that you have little control over. They only have two foot pedals – brake and power. The clutch isn’t required on EV’s which as a result, prevents stalling (yippee!). The steering and driving dynamics, however, act similarly to any gas car - but better in our opinion.
There is a reason why people who use electric cars tend to never go back to gas. They’re made to make your life easier and certainly make you feel safer and more comfortable driving. Ignoring all the environmental and economic benefits of these extraordinary cars and vans, you’re left with vehicles that have been heavily researched, intricately designed and produced to be better than any gas vehicle.
