Some people have strange ideas about electric cars. because they were kind enough to share. we collected so many we made a list of the Top 9.
Because of the myths spread by people who do not care enough about the truth, many are unaware of the benefits of EVs. Myths are being spread on the dark corners of the internet and under bright lights by people working for re-election. One example is Scott Morrison: Scott Morrison EVs end a weekend electric car legend.
But some myths contain only the essence of madness. If those affected once got into the back of an electric car wheel, they were heading straight for Crazytown at an astonishing speed.
Electric cars are not perfect but they are much better than some you would not believe. In spite of all the mythical knowledge, the days of ordinary cars are numbered. This is because the smoke from their exhaust is toxic.
top 9 EV myths :
- You pay a huge EV premium.
- The output from the battery design exceeds the reduction resulting from the use of EV.
- Batteries are rapidly declining and become obsolete within a few years.
- Electric cars do not have or have a low commercial value.
- We cannot reuse batteries.
- Switching to EVs wastes resources by creating standard cars for disposal.
- Caring for old petrol or diesel car is greener than driving an EV.
- Charging electric vehicles is time-consuming.
- EVs do not have enough distance – AKA “broad concern”.
Myth # 1. You have to pay a higher premium for EVs :
Electric cars are not cheap. The cheapest electric car is estimated at $45,000. So, if you want to buy a new car for less than $ 30,000, you will have to pay 50% to 265% more to go electrically.
The MG ZS EV is a nozzle charger with a real-world distance (hopefully) of over 200 km. It will get you back about $ 45,000 on the road. But the charge disappears when EVs are compared to standard cars of the same value. This test is based on personal preferences and driving habits so there is room for disagreement, but we look at the Tesla Model 3 – now available for about $ 62,000 – better than any other petrol or diesel car with the same price because they offer better performance and quiet ride than the same price competition.
Because people spend about $ 41,000 on a new car, a portion that spends more than this usually does not pay the minimum for an EV. An electric car can save more than $ 2,000 a year if it is driven in the middle of the year. Even if a premium has to be paid, an electric car is still worth it.
This equates to the cost of travel between the passenger car and EVs when rated for the 2018/19 financial year average of 12,600 km and a fuel cost of $ 1.50 per liter. It varies by region and charging habits, but homes with a sunny roof will usually save more than $ 2,000 a year.
Fortunately, the current situation where less expensive electric cars are not available will not continue. Manufacturers can offer you the same price as standard cheap cars. For example, the Wuling Hongguang Mini EV, More than 400,000 units have been sold in China. It seats four people, has a top speed of 100 km / h, and sells for about $ 7,000 after receiving little or no subsidy. Its actual earth width is only 140 km, but a version with a width of more than 300 km is active. That should be more than 200 km wide in real life.
Myth # 2. EVs emit more CO2 than petrol and diesel vehicles :
The idea that driving electric cars results in the emission of greenhouse gases equal to or greater than that of conventional cars is a crazy one. There is no trace of truth in this myth. The best thing that skeptics of the EV would want to see from an electric grid that is heavily dependent on older coal-fired power stations could be worse than a single-sized fuel-efficient hybrid or a very small standard car. Even this will not continue as the grids become cleaner.
It is not difficult to determine the approximate output of the EV charged on Australia’s most polluted grid. Including losses, the electric car needs to be charged at about 0.15 kilowatt-hours per kilometer.
An ordinary passenger car burns 0.11 liters of fuel per kilometer. Includes emissions from refining, refining, and transport3 – petrol emits about 2.6 kg of CO2 per liter burned. This amounts to an average of 286 grams of CO2 per kilometer.
So even if it is charged on the most polluted Australian grid, a standard electric car will only lead to 52% CO2 emissions of a typical Australian petrol passenger car. When a car is charged at 50% from rooftop solar4 it drops to only 26% of the output of a standard car and is less than any hybrid car on the market.
If we use a grid emissions rate in Australia it is about 690 grams of CO2 per kilowatt-hour5 to 104 grams. This is more than 90 grams per kilometer, which is probably the best fuel-efficient hybrid I can drive in the real world, but the EV will need to be charged only 15% of solar panels for better performance.
Considering the number of additional solar panels that people install on roofs in preparation for EVs, a typical electric car will have no problem hitting even the best hybrid in gas production per kilometer. Also, because we expect coal-fired power stations to be shut down at a faster rate, we are confident that a conventional electric car purchased today and powered by a central pollution grid will emit less per kilometer of air during its lifetime than the current one. hybrid available.
Myth # 3. Output From Battery Production Exceeds Any Benefits:
we have shown EVs that emit more greenhouse gases than conventional kilometer-driven cars. But there is another myth that the production of EV battery packs produces more emissions than driving saves. While battery pack production is very consuming, it does not come close to the benefits of the outpouring of electric vehicles.
The latest estimate puts emissions from the production of EV battery packs equivalent to 75 kg of CO2 per kilowatt-hour. This is very bad. If true, it means producing the results of 50-kilowatt-hour battery emissions of 3.75 tons of CO2.
But a fully charged EV on the Australian grid, on average, will cost less than 182 grams per kilometer than a standard car. This means that it will only have to be driven 20,000 miles (20,600 km) to pay off its battery charge. With an average Australian car driving 12,600 miles a year, that is 20 months. If an electric car were instead charged 50% from the solar roof, it would have to be driven about 16,000 miles – about 15 months of normal driving.
Myth # 4. Electric cars have no trading value :
One myth says that EVs are cheap or none at all. There is truth in this. Electric cars will continue to improve, which will reduce the trading value of the EV you buy today. But it is a silly myth because if electric cars continue to evolve, it will further reduce the commercial value of the internal combustion engine. This myth may have arisen for the following reasons:
The first modern electric cars, the mass-produced cars that first appeared 11 years ago used to be very expensive for what they were getting so they were mostly bought by lovers. This means they have found low prices in the second-hand market, many of whom are people who can be very enthusiastic.
Many of the first electric cars were limited, and some, like the original Nissan Leafs, had problems with battery damage.
Many countries had EV funding, but in places like the US, funding was received after the purchase of the car. This makes it seem like electric cars are taking a bigger impact on their trading prices than they used to be.
EVs were developing rapidly, which meant people were more likely to wait to buy a new model than to buy a second one.
But these problems usually do not work out. While new EV models will continue to evolve and lower models will emerge, and this will damage today’s EV trading prices, internal combustion engines will be even more vulnerable. This is because electric cars – for most people – are a much better product.
Once the EVs have been shown to break down slightly because electric motors are lighter, have lower operating costs, and their batteries can last longer, the need for second-generation EVs may be much stronger than conventional cars.
Petrol and diesel vehicles are also dangerous proposals from an environmental management perspective. Although oil prices may fall as EVs continue to increase, global warming does not necessarily make us less anxious. This means that ordinary motorists may end up paying for their carbon emissions. If it costs $ 80 to remove a ton of CO2 from the atmosphere and use it for a long time, a very low rate, that will add about 21 cents to a liter of gasoline.
Tesla 3 model: This electric car sells for 3% below the new price, so obviously, at least one person thinks it saves the price.
Myth # 5. EV Batteries Can Not Be Reused :
One myth says that EV batteries cannot be recycled. But they can and will be there because there are important things inside. The main material is stainless steel and, by weight, iron is the most recycled metal in the world. It also contains copper, which is much needed by my re-business partners, Pigdog and Spider, who accept it instead of money in their business transactions.
Some elements such as lithium, cobalt, and manganese require special equipment to recover but can be recycled by grinders such as mixed iron dust that is sent to maintain performance. Alternatively, battery packs can be returned to their manufacturer for direct recycling.
The current cost per kg of metal battery is:
- Steel equipment: $ 1.07
- Copper Material: $ 5.90
- Cobalt, refined: $ 112
- Nickel, refined: $ 28
- Manganese 8, refined: $ 2.80
- Lithium as carbonate (16.7% lithium by weight): $ 205
- Lithium has quadrupled its value by 2020 and is at an all-time high. This is expected to result in shortages for other types of domestic batteries in Australia over the next few months and may affect the supply of EVs. Thankfully, it will also increase the focus on reuse. Inflation will not last, but the development of recycling will continue.
While technically possible to reuse everything in a battery pocket, it does not save on other things like carbon – very cheap. Some people will be upset that not everything is recycled, but it does not make sense if money can do much good elsewhere, such as solar power and wind generation.
Myth # 6. EVs Waste Resources By Creating Old Vehicles To Be Disposable :
One strange myth is that EVs require that petrol and diesel vehicles be discarded as well as a waste of resources. I would agree if normal working cars were destroyed, but this does not happen.
If you decide to buy a new electric car than a normal teenager, your decision will result in the creation of a single EV that would otherwise be possible with a single car under an internal combustion engine. Buying a new electric car does not cause the new car to be pulled over for disposal. It removes them, so they never exist in the first place and never use resources.
This myth may be fed by the Cash for Clunkers program in the US. This was a subsidy for car builders wrapped in a dead man’s skin environment as a cover-up. The program ended 11 years ago and resulted in the sale of very few EVs, as there were not many available in 2009.
If you trade your six-year-old car for an electric car, the car yard will not ship it to a damaged location. They will sell it for as much money as possible.
If the demand for standard vehicles decreases to the extent that it is considered roadworthy and ends up being discarded, that is not a waste of resources. That releases resources, such as metal, that are trapped inside a car that no longer works due to technology, making EVs clearly superior in terms of quality, operating costs, and reliability.
Myth # 7. Caring for an Older Car is Naturally Better Than Buying an EV :
Related to the old myth the strange idea of keeping an old car is better in the environment than buying an EV. This comes with two main flavors:
The extra CO2 emissions from making EVs are much higher it is better to keep your old car running. Significant reductions in pollution can be achieved by spending money elsewhere, such as solar power.
The first point makes no sense. As I have previously pointed out with the third number of myths, it does not take long for the EV to include other extracts from its production due to the emissions of carbon from each driven motor – which would be zero if charged with pure power.
Any standard comparable car will emit more air per kilometer, and this extra emission will occur until something better is changed, such as an electric car. There is no profit in keeping a normal car running unless you take advantage of your bank balance by not paying for a new car.
It is nonsense because if a normal car is still ready to be on the road when it is replaced, it will be sold – in most cases – it will be sold and used rather than discarded. But even guess, there is a failure to be present when purchasing an EV. The issuance of standard single-vehicle vehicles is greater after three years than the production and driving of the EV.
The second version of this myth is true. There are options that offer far more environmental benefits per price than buying an electric car. For example, purchasing a large solar system will reduce the amount of gas emissions that you spend more on EVs.
If you do this, you will not have a new car, so you will be making a sacrifice. You may have a normal car that you can keep working on, but in the end, it will wear out and need to be replaced. Since there may be a lot of second-hand electric cars on the market at the time this happens, the sensible thing to do is to replace them.
So please spend a lot of money on solar energy and some of the best ways to help the environment before you spend money on EV, but if you are going to spend a lot of money on a car, please make sure that gas – or at least fuel-efficient mix, if that fits your driving habits and budget.
Myth # 8. EV Charging Takes Time :
One myth that has never seemed to fade is that EVs take time to charge. When enlarged, these often appear to be on the move for hundreds of miles or more to a remote rural town.
Myth # 9. Most electric cars have a longer distance than fairy tales:
Most EVs can use powerful DC chargers that I have seen add up to 12 miles per minute. With the right car and the right charger, apparently, now it can cover a distance of 100 km in 5 minutes.
Less power is left in the battery pocket, charging faster. This means that charging to less than full capacity can save time. People need to take a break from driving every now and then – or at least they should.
Most people do not travel to remote rural areas. So People who drive long distances in rural areas are smart enough not to buy the wrong electric car to do the job.
True to long journeys, even fast-moving EVs take much longer to “burn” than a petrol or diesel car. What makes this a myth is an undisclosed fact that most electric car owners spend less time “spraying” than those with regular cars. This is because normal daily charging takes very little time.
When a typical EV owner arrives home, he spends less than 30 seconds connecting his car and the next day spends less than 30 seconds pulling it out. They may spend less than 5 minutes on this regular week while visiting the station
