Questions and answers on electric vehicle

We leave no doubt about electric mobility, below are some questions we often receive and to which we have answered

Does an electric car use more energy than a traditional car?

False! To travel the same distance an electric vehicle requires almost 3 times less primary energy than a traditional heat engine vehicle.
This is mainly due to the production process that is upstream of the final energy used by the machine; process that has an efficiency of 18-19% for petrol against 52% of the electric.

Anyway, does an electric vehicle pollute?

An electric car pollutes 70% less than a gasoline car and about 50% less than a methane one and is the only technology that allows the total elimination of exhaust emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx) and dust thin (PM) while driving.

To benefit from this is people’s health, especially in the cities, with a consequent reduction in medical and health costs. Significant advantages are also recorded thanks to the reduction of noise pollution.

E-mobility can take advantage of PV?

Of course. A 1kWp photovoltaic system produces so much energy to run an electric car about 10,000 km (in the case of an annual production (Milan) of 1,200 kWh / kWp and an average distance of an electric car of 8 km / kWh).

Is it still early to buy an electric car?

Very often we consider the electric car as a technology that is far away today, but in reality there are already 4.8 million vehicles in circulation in the world, in countries such as China, the United States, Norway, Japan, the United Kingdom and Germany.

The electric car offers many advantages, including: sustainability, adequate autonomy for average daily transfers, increasingly accessible prices and are now present in many models.

Did you know that?

» 92% of the time a car is parked.
» On average, the daily distance is about 35 km.
» You can intelligently manage the charging of an electric car from the photovoltaic system.
