EVs are becoming increasingly popular as people become more aware of the environmental benefits of driving electric. However, there is a lot of misinformation about EVs out there, which can make it difficult to be confident you are making the right decision.

Types of EVs

There are two main types of EVs, battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs).

BEVs are powered solely by electricity stored in batteries. They have no tailpipe emissions, making them zero-emissions vehicles. BEVs can travel between 100 and 300 miles on a single charge, depending on the model.

PHEVs have both an electric motor and a petrol/diesel engine. The electric motor can power the vehicle for a limited distance, after which the engine kicks in. PHEVs can travel between 20 and 50 miles on a single charge.

The benefits of owning an EV

There are many benefits to owning an EV, including:

  • Lower running costs. The cost of electricity is much lower than the cost of petrol or diesel (even today!), so running an EV can save you a significant amount of money on fuel costs.
  • Less maintenance. EVs have fewer moving parts than fossil fuel-powered vehicles, so they require less maintenance. This can save you money on repairs and service costs.
  • Environmental benefits. Most EVs produce zero tailpipe emissions, which can help to improve air quality and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Common misconceptions about EVs

One of the biggest challenges facing the EV industry is the amount of misinformation that is out there. Some of the most common misconceptions about EVs include:

  • EVs are expensive. While EVs are more expensive than petrol-powered vehicles upfront, the lower running costs can offset the higher purchase price over time.
  • EVs have a limited range. The range of EVs has improved significantly in recent years, and many models now have a range of over 200 miles. Some top models have a range of more than 350 miles.
  • EVs are not convenient. There are now many public charging stations available, and many people are able to install a charge point at home. What’s more convenient than filling up while you sleep?

If you are looking for a vehicle that is good for the environment and your wallet, an EV is a great option.
