‘I do not believe in a fate that will fall on us no matter what we do. I do believe in a fate that will fall on us if we do nothing.’
With the reality of climate crisis becoming harder to ignore by the day, nations and individuals are growing conscious of their place in the world, as well as their effect on it. Between reducing the carbon footprint on the individual level to banning the usage of plastic on the regulatory level, people are finding ways they can alleviate and, in time, reverse the damage to the environment.
The decision to switch to vehicles powered by clean energy comprises one such step towards a sustainability-led future. Much has been said and written about the environmental benefits of EVs, as well as their lower operating and maintenance costs, among other factors. This article will focus on the advantages that go beyond their sustainability- and cost-related considerations.
- EVs are the vehicles of the future!
Going by the present trajectory of automobile innovation, EVs comprise its logical conclusion. The trend that validates this prediction involves the growing push away from fossil fuel-driven vehicles. With technological advancements making the shift towards non-conventional, sustainable energy sources more feasible and cost-efficient, the automobile industry is increasingly embracing innovative power generation options. Consequently, as electricity-run vehicles become the norm, those powered by internal combustion engines (ICE) are falling behind the curve.
- A truly connected car
The rise of AI and IoT-based technologies has the world advancing towards realizing the concept of connected, smart societies. The futuristic vision, which is rapidly translating into tangible reality, involves a range of cutting-edge automobile features and operations.
In an EV, this means that you can control critical aspects – such as geofencing your vehicle, checking its location, and gauging its charging status to finding nearby charging points to remotely activating the AC system to pre-cool or pre-heat the car, etc. – by using your smartphone! Moreover, EVs from leading global manufacturers come with in-built OTA capabilities, meaning that your car is always connected and operates on the most up-to-date information.
- Better legroom and storage
All EVs, be it two-wheelers or four-wheelers, are gearless. This means a more spacious and comfortable cabin, more legroom, and bigger storage space. The absence of the gear lever also means that the rear section of the cabin will have a flat floor, thereby providing a better riding experience for the passenger sitting in the middle. The absence of a conventional internal combustion engine also leaves more space under the front hood, resulting in more storage options.
- Generates the sound of silence
No mechanical engine means no noise! The electric motor functions without making any sound, allowing the driver and the passengers to have a noiseless driving experience. You can also read a book without any disturbance or enjoy the music unadulterated by any whirring or rumbling associated with ICE vehicles.
- A super-smooth driving experience
The electric motor is not only noiseless but also acts with a great degree of grace and subtlety when it comes to torque. This provides an unbeatable and seamless driving experience that cannot be matched by conventional vehicles.
