EV advice: Start small, grow slowly!

8/2/19, 5:00 PM -

Thinking of EVs initially brings to mind a saloon car, a sports car or a minivan for the entire family. But that would be putting the cart before the horse.

EVs become standard in transportation - sooner or later.

In order to get comfortable with electric vehicles, you should start small: with electric gardening tools, wheel chairs (for the elderly), electric golf carts, pedelecs and e-scooters. The electricity for the batteries comes from a solar generator on the roof.

If it has to be a car, then you should start with small all-electric car. You can use it to go shopping, visit family and friends in the area and for your daily commute. The latter especially pays of, if your employer installs a number of charging stations for his employees, ideally with solar carports on the company parking lot.

Save money!

That way, it will also save money. Exchanging the family saloon for an electric model does is not worth it at the moment. The range (on a full charge) of EVs is still too small, but that will change very soon.

As a matter of fact: About 80 percent of the individual traffic in Central Europe only involve short distances up to 50 or 60 kilometres. This is ideal for electric cars, and not a problem even in winter. (HS)
