Although electric transport has come a long way, we have certainly not reached the final stage. The number of manufacturers of electric cars is still increasing and electric cars can be found in almost every price range. Batteries are getting stronger over time and it doesn’t stop there. This article discusses the developments surrounding electric transport.
The battery is the beating heart of the four-wheeler. It is therefore logical that so many manufacturers are constantly working on the development of this energy storage device. The battery largely determines how far the car can be driven. The so-called action radius is currently an average of 350 to 400 kilometres. That is more than enough for ‘normal’ use.
There are even manufacturers, such as Mercedes, who have indicated that they are working on a battery that will last for 900 to 1000 kilometres. That would be serious competition for diesel engines.
In order to be able to drive electrically, a good EV charging infrastructure is necessary. Fortunately, investments are not only being made in the cars, but also in an extensive and adequate charging network. By making smart use of EV Charging data, energy suppliers can install charging stations at the right places in public spaces. Fast charging points can now be found all over Europe and this number will only increase.
Nowadays it is possible to ‘smartly’ charge an electric car at home. This is also called smart charging. This means that the amount of electricity a house or office building needs is continuously measured. All energy that is not used and therefore remains, is passed on to the charging stations for car charging.
Whereas the supply of electric transport used to be very limited, the opposite is now a reality. Almost all the major car makers are introducing electric models to the market. Even the hybrid engine is still gaining popularity.
So it is no longer just Tesla. So nowadays there is something for just about everyone. This applies to both the appearance of the car and the price range.
