Wrong Assumptions About Electric Cars

 Minimal Mileage - How far do you travel for routine activities such as to the office? The average person travels 40-60 km a day to leave and go home from work. Well, even the most wasteful electric car is able to travel twice the distance above. The Hyundai Ioniq you see in this place can travel up to 270 km. Nissan Leaf can run up to 240 km, with a single charge of the battery.

Wrong Assumptions About Electric Cars
Wrong Assumptions About Electric Cars


The assumption of a lackluster EV aka no power is possible because it is often associated with golf cart cars. Don't be confused. Road electric cars have qualified performance according to their designation. A spectacular example, the highest version of Tesla's Model S even broke records as the fastest mass car. Acceleration of 0-100 km / h is achieved in 2.5 seconds.


This is the most frequent question, in addition to mileage. No need to worry is the shortest answer. More fully, the manufacturer has prepared a qualified safety device in the car. According to NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration), the electric cars they tested were able to provide a good assessment for passenger protection. Battery? It's the same. Safe from collisions. They also asserted that the occurrence of fires due to collisions in electric cars, can be compared to the cars of fuel users.

Hard to Take Care of

On the other hand, electric cars are very easy and frugal to maintain. The much smaller number of components of a conventional machine allows for significant cut-off component maintenance and replacement costs. For example, you do not need to change the oil and filter, spark plugs, timing belts, air filters, gasoline filters, and so on.

Difficulty Refilling Batteries

No need to worry. In addition to battery charging infrastructure being seriously developed by the government and private sector, most electric cars will be recharged more often in homes or office parking lots. Currently SPKLU (Public Electric Vehicle Charging Station) infrastructure is available in various cities in Java, Sumatra and Sulawesi. Digital applications to help find SPKLU are already there and easy to use.

Not very environmentally friendly

The ev converts 70 percent of the chemical energy to drive the wheels. Compare that to conventional vehicles that only change 20 percent of the chemical energy contained in fuel. Plus, electric cars don't produce emissions directly through exhaust. Because there is no burning result that must be removed.
