Despite the fact that the various manufacturers are advancing by leaps in the field of vehicles propelled solely by an electrical system, we Intuit that for most people the benefits offered by even not enough. In addition, the radical change in a vehicle’s internal combustion engine to a fully electric car is very large, so customers have some fear to opt for a tourism 100% electric.
We know that electric cars have many advantages over internal combustion engine cars, but also many disadvantages. The main disadvantages of this type of green cars are recharge of the battery and the place to charge it. Autonomy in itself is not a too big problem, at least to our way of seeing. The Opel Ampera-e, according to the German mark and approval protocols, can travel 150 km with a quick 30-minute recharge.
Opel says the distance traveled daily by most media of the conductors is 60km. It would not surprise me that they were even less, but the fact is that most of us prefer buying a versatile car that is worth so much to make the purchase or go to work, as on vacation or any journey hundreds of kilometres for the reason that is.
Opel Ampera-e will arrive in dealerships next spring and total autonomy, according to the approvals, is 500 km. Under normal running conditions, with several people in the cockpit, the loaded trunk and activated air conditioning and radio, that autonomy probably stays below 400 km. On a vacation trip this is find a fast charging (not being quite common nowadays), stop a while and continue the March.
On a vacation trip may not be a very big problem, because we can anticipate it and plan and adapt our route. But,and it is a journey of urgency? To what I want to get is that it is understandable that people have some fear, now, to these vehicles. If we acquire an electric vehicle practically we are obliged to have a car engine at home; and is that the ease of find a gas station every few kilometers and fill the deposit in 5 minutes gives many points to them cars of propulsion traditional.
This article not has been drafted by criticizing to the Opel Ampera- e, or much less. We only want to see the reality of the moment. The future is electric vehicles, although we don’t know how soon really be profitable for most people. Brands are getting batteries (never better said) on this issue, and that does not take too many years to offer products that truly meet the needs of motorists.
