More environmentally sustainable because they do not emit gases directly into the atmosphere, low maintenance and operating costs and quieter driving. These are the main advantages of electric cars, which are starting to gain more and more fans.
What is the range of an electric car?
This is one of the points that makes many people hesitate to opt for an electric car. And the truth is, this is a question for which there are different answers. It depends on the car model, the type of battery you have, the driving style and even the type of route. The range of new electric car models is around 300 kilometers on a single charge. Very similar to combustion vehicles, which also end up having to stop to refuel on a journey of this distance. Above all, it is important to consider the use of the vehicle. If it is short distances, such as home-work-home, which is around 40-80 kilometers per day, even fewer self-driving electric cars are suitable. But if range is a crucial factor, opting for a hybrid or plug-in hybrid vehicle may be a good solution.
How long does it take to charge an electric vehicle?
It depends, because there are different types of charging stations:
• Normal charging station (3.7 kWh): between 6 and 8 hours of charge to reach 100% battery capacity.
• Semi-rapid charging station (22 kWh): approximately 1 hour to obtain 80% of the battery capacity. However, this time also depends on the characteristics of the charger integrated in the vehicle.
• Fast charging station: between 20 and 30 minutes to reach 80% of the battery capacity.
Charging stations are present throughout the country: on public roads and in private places with public access, such as car parks, highways and shopping centers.
