If you read what I wrote, it is indeed in cities that the EV is justified and on small vehicles.The EV, in the city, would be a good solution for the pollution, and noise pollution, that you forget.
Indeed, it is even the automobile itself which is not worth its justification in medium and large cities where public transport cannot justify it.But, that goes against the grain.
Except that at low speeds, 50/60, recovery should be minimal if economical driving limits it as much as possible.Concerning the regenerative brake, for a very long time, before the EV, I let off the accelerator to enter the city between 50 and 60, and in EV, just like that, you recover energy, you don't just save it , as in VT.
On a course, by anticipating all the decelerations, so as not to touch the brake, you recover a lot.
So a minimal saving (for the moment only) not justifying the additional purchase cost without taking into account the premiums which maintain an artificial market and which will disappear and the cost of the electric KW is increasing. And it will also be necessary to take into account the significant taxes on fuel which will have to be carried over to the replacement EV.
It's true, but I have a few years as a professional in the automotive field in BE and where the EV changes nothing to the rest of the vehicle which must be reinforced to support the additional permanent loads of EVs.You can see that you are talking about the EV, without knowing it.
The answer was provided in this video where the cost increases from simple to double for 100.000 km according to the figures indicated. All you had to do was check this one out.As I said, I would like to hear that you eat a little more tires, it's not at all impossible, but the question is how much.
1%, 10%, 20%?
Far from being isolated? Only sufficient global statistics can provide an answer.My kona has 204 hp, it's rear-wheel drive, and the rear tires have over 80 km.
Our cases in VE are very far from being isolated cases.
Alright ! So follow your reasoning to the end, not only according to the current situation, but soon extended to the entire earth, which for the moment is seriously lacking, given the low number of EVs.What are the conditions?
80% of French people never exceed 300 km, and I no longer have in mind those who only do 100 km max.
I had already published the figures, with their official source, not "they say that"!, or I think that...
These arguments are not mine, but those of the author of this video who cites professional organizations with reference value.Comfort with a small EV will be the same as with a small VT.
All these arguments that you give do not hold water, because you have "old" ideas about EVs.
Wear replaced by that of the recuperators requested as replacement such as an alternator.Tires, you are probably right, it is possible, but I come back to quantification.
And I wonder, if that doesn't cancel out, with the fact that you practically don't brake, and therefore less wear of pads, discs, which will last 500 km
Overall, it doesn't seem like this is actually the case!The cost of fuel per km, even with an expensive EV, remains lower than that of a VT.
Virtually no maintenance.
Nothing special about that. With a thermal vehicle of more than 200.000 km and currently at more than 260.000 km I have not had any particular costs and on a diesel of one of my grandchildren with more than 300.000 km the only costs were a change of alternator. It's not about the vehicle but the way it's driven.I remind you that I did, (it's not good), my first service of the kona, at more than 70 km, because it had been the victim of a refusal of priority, otherwise it was at 000 , which I would have done, to see!
Only if we ONLY take into account that of the use of an EV, not its overall pollution from the source (materials, transformation, transport, recycling, etc.) to its end of life.In addition, whatever people say, it is better than a VT in terms of pollution, even if it is not neutral, it is not necessarily the solution, but it is not a stopgap!
It is not, for the moment, a question of recycling but of production volume on a global scale and the increasingly frequent thefts clearly show the direction of the market where this copper is worth “gold”Battery recycling is taking place, little by little, as for copper, it has been recycled very well, for a very long time.
That's just a choice for pleasure, which has nothing to do with industrialization itself.In short, I like driving the EV!
