"Are you joining the revolution?"
Electric vehicles run purely on electric, meaning they produce ZERO CO2 emissions. In terms of running cost, they are one of the cheapest. With some vehicles allowing 300+ miles on a single full charge, the electric vehicle is fast becoming a popular choice on today's UK roads.
The electric car is powered by one or more electric motors acquires its energy solely from rechargeable batteries. Unlike internal combustion engines such as petrol or diesel, electric cars are very quiet, they have no exhaust emissions and many electric cars come with a feature to emit the sound of a traditional car. Partly viewed as a safety feature to notify pedestrians that there is a motor vehicle approaching!
Bit of background and history of the electric vehicle
Did you know?.. The first electric car was produced all the way back in November 1881. Gustave Trouvé attended the Exposition Internationale d'Électricité de Paris with his big reveal! Then, in 1884, Thomas Parker of Wolverhampton built an electric car that was practical and a production car also. Thomas used his very own high capacity rechargeable batteries which he designed himself!
However, none of these examples was regarded as a "real" electric car! The first official electric car was designed by German inventor Andras Flocken in 1988 when he built the "Flocken Elektrowagen!"
Modern Electric Cars
A renaissance in electric car manufacturing began around 2008 due to the advances in the batteries used, and also the pressure the world became under over global warming and the need to improve the urban air quality whilst reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
The Toyota Prius, along with the Nissan Leaf became the first household names of the Electric Car, however, Tesla was soon to become the number one desire, if opting for an Electric Car!
In July 2019 Motor Trend magazine awarded the Tesla S with the "ultimate car of the year" award. In 2020, the Tesla 3 overtook the Nissan Lead in the "all-time best selling Electric Car" position too, with over half a million cars delivered - staggering!
In other areas of the Motor World, GM made a bold statement in November 2020. Claiming they plan to spend more on electric car development over the next 5 years than it spends on the traditional petrol and diesel engines.
The Electric Car Revolution is well and truly here!
