What You Need to Know About Electric City Vehicles

About Electric City Vehicles

If you’re committed to combating climate change, an EV could be the right choice. Not only do you not have to buy gas, but an EV can save money over the long term on routine maintenance. You can also get a rebate to help offset the cost of an electric car or truck.

In a dedicated electric model, the drivetrain has only 17 moving parts compared to hundreds in a typical internal combustion engine (ICE) car or truck. This allows designers to add more passenger and cargo volume to models that offer similar driving range as ICE counterparts.

As the EV market grows, manufacturers are releasing a wide range of sizes and shapes of cars to meet different consumer needs. Smaller battery electric vehicles tend to have lower range numbers than larger EVs, and many offer features like quick acceleration that make them more fun to drive.

Larger EVs are also more expensive than smaller models, which can have implications for affordability in global markets and for sustainability as the batteries require more critical minerals to produce. However, the growth of EVs in general is pushing OEMs to focus on producing more models and to bring them to a wider range of consumers in all regions.

Among the big players, Tesla and Ford are taking somewhat different approaches to selling EVs. Ford’s approach, which lets dealers “opt in” to EV sales at a later date, may be seen as more flexible by some dealers that are reluctant today, but it also gives the company more control over standards and practices from store to store than it would have had under traditional franchise agreements.
