Put simply, an electric car or vehicle is one that uses an electric rather than an internal combustion (petrol/diesel) engine. They’re distinct from the more common hybrid car in that their engine is fully electric – most electric cars now use lithium-ion batteries for their balance of power, stability and cost-efficiency – rather than a combination of the two.
The main pros of electric cars relate to the environment.
While they’re zero exhaust emission, there are some emissions – albeit significantly less than those of a conventional vehicle – inevitably produced for the electricity involved in charging. What’s more the electric car’s on-board efficiency of around 80% compares extremely well with that of 15-20% for a diesel or petrol car.
3.- La ITV se pasa a precio de gasolina y no hace falta hacer la prueba de gases. Las revisiones son algo más económicas sin las sustituciones de aceites, líquidos y filtros en gran medida.
4.- El aparcamiento en zona azul es totalmente gratuito.
5.- Con los vehículos de movilidad eléctrica se puede circular por la mayor parte de las zonas limitadas al tráfico rodado por motivos de contaminación.
6.- Por motivos de prestaciones y características generales de los potenciales compradores, los seguros son algo más económicos.
7.- Menor nivel de ruido, vibraciones casi imperceptibles y casi no emiten calor.
8.- Menor posibilidad de averías mecánicas así como menor desgaste general de los neumáticos y componentes del sistema de frenado (dependiendo del conductor).
9.- Eficiencia energética entorno al 90% frente al 38% de un motor diésel medio.
10.- Par máximo desde 0 rpm y potencia constante.
Absolutely. Recent crash tests and battery risk analyses have shown that electric cars are at least as safe as their non-electric counterparts.
There are various ways in which you can charge an electric car:
1. At home via the standard household electrical outlet into which you’d plug your television or vacuum cleaner
2. At a 3KW public charge spot
3. Trading your old battery in for a new one at a battery exchange.
Charging time can range from 6-12 hours for a full battery while the cost can be as little as €1-2 (depending, in both instances, on the power supply).
Prices can obviously vary enormously – from the cheap to the wildly expensive. Here at Gaursa Motors we’re pleased to say we offer a few of the best value fully electric options on the market in Spain, from the Renault Fluence ZE to the Nissan Leaf.
As for how much they cost to run: they’re a lot cheaper than their petrol or diesel counterparts with a fully charged battery costing somewhere in the region of 1-2€ with an all-electric range of 185km.
