An electric car is an automobile that is propelled by one or more electric motors, using electrical energy stored in batteries or another energy storage device. Electric cars are becoming more and more popular around the world. With the prices of fuels reaching record high and pollution becoming a global focus issue, Electric cars seem to be the way forward for the planet.

The major benefits of an electric car are:

They are simpler to start as compared to fuel powered cars because you never really "start" the car. Once the batteries are charged, just turn the switch and the car is on!

Electric cars will ensure that you will no longer need to get regular servicing done .You may need to change the battery pack at some intervals, but overall electric cars are low maintenance as compared to regular vehicles. Reliable electric motors last longer than petrol or diesel engine and ensure that you will not need to look under the hood of your car at regular intervals.

Although currently electric cars cost a lot more than regular cars, on a per kilometer basis they are cheaper to operate. Once mass manufacturing of these vehicles starts, then the prices of these cars will automatically drop.

Electric cars are cleaner than fuel powered vehicles. They also use energy more efficiently than normal cars. Fuel powered cars waste about 2/3 of their fuel in excess heat.

On the other hand electric cars use almost all of their energy to move. Less energy used means less pollution Electric cars help promote an awareness of conservation of resources and an attitude of gratitude for the resources we have. Since the transport sector uses much of the Earth’s supply of petrol, electric cars have the advantage of helping to conserve existing petroleum reserves. This will help lower costs for consumers and ease shocks from the increasing oil prices and reduce our dependence on foreign oil. Another benefit of having an electric car is the fact that the government has lower taxes on the sale of such cars. Also since most people commute to work in cars, they could help themselves by using the automatic models and reduce their stress while driving in bumper to bumper traffic.

Electric cars are an economical solution to combat rising fuel costs. They are clean fuel vehicles which are good for the environment. You can get tax benefits from the government for driving a clean fueled vehicle, and they save you money on rising fuel costs. They are not slow, and make perfect sense when you are looking to buy a new car. In urban India, charging an electric car should not be a hassle and this has ensures that slowly and steadily electric cars have built up a small but growing following. While most of these cars need to charge for atleast 12 hours to be fully ready, advances in battery technology have ensured that the distance travelled in one charge has gone up. So buying an electric car is a good option if you are looking to help the environment and don’t want to compromise on your travel needs. Your wallet will smile as the savings in fuel charges will swell.
