e-vehicles will form an integral part of your fleet in the future and you need to know how to more about this technology.
- Fuel savings: driving an electric car can save the average driver $1,500-$2,000 per year on fuel.
- Reduced maintenance: no transmission, clutch, oil and coolant changes, mufflers or exhaust systems
- Longer vehicle life: due to the simpler drivetrain: some e-vehicles have 8 years/160,000 km warranties
- Government incentives reduce upfront costs of electric cars and charging stations.
Zero tailpipe emissions. For companies seeking to reduce their overall greenhouse gas emissions, e-vehicles make a significant contribution
No compromise in comfort or performance
Full amenities: e-vehicles are luxurious as their internal-combustion equivalents, with heated steering wheels, heated seats, on-board GPS systems, Bluetooth connections, air conditioning, heating and sound systems.
Speed and power: e-vehicles can maintain highway speeds upwards of 150 km/h. And electric motors deliver full torque from first RPM, for faster acceleration than internal-combustion vehicles.
Quiet: e-vehicles make almost no noise at any speed.
From utility to luxury vehicles
From under $30,000 (before incentives) to over $100,000, electric cars are in all classes, from subcompact to SUV to refined luxury vehicles. Electric pickup trucks, light delivery vehicles and semi-trucks are in development.
