Nobody Killed The Electric Car


Visitors: 135

Contrary to all the publicity, no one actually killed the electric car.

It is alive and well and set to make the biggest comeback of all time when it invades the roads of the world over the coming years and displaces the dinosaurs that petrol and diesel powered cars have become.

The first stages of this revival of the clean, quiet and friendly automobiles is underway now with the joint agreement between Nissan, Renault and the Israel government to electrify the mode of transport throughout the whole of the country.

Denmark has also wisely chosen to embrace the move towards electric powered cars.

The infrastructure will be in place for anyone who chooses to travel by electricity, rather than fossil fuel power, to enjoy the convenience of having ‘top-up’ stations for recharging their vehicles wherever they decide to travel through the country.

This was one of the biggest hurdles that manufacturers of electric vehicles had to contend with. They simply didn't have the range of petrol and diesel powered vehicles and this stopped many people considering them as an alternative means of transport.

With the development of batteries that has taken place in the last couple of years, vehicles that use electric motors can cover longer distances before requiring a recharge.

Added to the ability to drive further on the one charge, the latest batteries also allow for a shorter charging time where a charge of at least 70% can be expected in the time that it would normally take to fill the gas tank with fuel in a combustion engine vehicle.

Most of the hurdles that were once present have since been removed.

You can save gas and drastically reduce your running expenses.

How would you like to keep more of that hard earned cash that you are currently pumping into the atmosphere with the inefficient vehicles that the automobile manufacturers are selling to you?
