The demand for electric cars is increasing as air pollution increases. Many people believe electric cars will be the future. Most people don’t understand that electric cars are now the future. Electric cars are being launched rapidly, and one reason is rising CO2 emissions. This new type of mobility is bringing many misconceptions with it. Here are some common myths about electric cars.
1) Myth: A fast-charging electric car is not possible
Truth: Charging an electric car takes less time, thanks to newer batteries and other technological advances. The power of the charging point and the battery capacity are critical factors in charging an electric car. Tata Nexon EV sets at 0% from SOC (state-of-charge) within eight hours of any 15 Ampere point. This is roughly when it takes to sleep or work a typical office shift from 8 AM to 5 PM. Tata NexonEV is a fast-charging electric car that can charge up to 80% within an hour.
2) Myth: Electric cars run out of battery quickly
Truth: Many people believe that an electric car will run out and leave you stranded on the side of the road. This is incorrect as technology has advanced that your electric car can run for 300+ km on a single charge. This is enough to get you to work every day. Your car will warn you if your charge is low. Tata Motors Zconnect app gives you a list of fast charging stations near you and then directs you to the charging station.
3) Myth: Electric vehicles and lithium batteries are dangerous
Truth: E-mobility is excellent for our environment. However, there are many questions about its safety. Although there are many concerns about lithium-ion batteries setting themselves ablaze upon impact, they are just as safe as diesel- or gasoline-powered engines. The Nexon EV’s stable lithium-ion battery technology is designed to work under extreme ambient temperatures. This battery is IP67 certified and is shockproof, waterproof, dustproof, and all-weather.
4) Myth: Electric cars are slow
Truth is that electric vehicles are not slow, at least in this day and age. Many models are faster than their diesel or petrol counterparts. Electric vehicles are extremely fast because they have an electric motor that generates maximum torque with the push of a pedal. A Tata Nexon electric vehicle generates electricity by pushing down on the accelerator. According to internal test data, this causes your car to go from being stationary to 100 km/h in 9.9 seconds. That’s Tata Ziptron technology at its best!
5) Myth: An efficient charging infrastructure is essential for the widespread adoption of electric vehicles
Truth: Most owners prefer to charge their cars at home during the day or at work when they are not using them. However, if you travel, it will be necessary to charge your vehicle in public. With a growing number of startups and existing power distribution companies investing in it, public EV charging infrastructure in the country is on the rise.
You can use Google Maps to find the nearest EV charging station. Or, you can download the Tata Motors ZConnect App that will give you a list of all the fast-charging stations in the country. It even guides you to the closest charging station so that we can do the navigation!
An influx of electric vehicles is now happening in the automobile industry. Summits worldwide have seen governments pledge to transition to electric mobility fully. It’s high time that we embrace electric vehicles as the future.
