Electric cars have succeeded in eliminating or mitigating two major obstacles over the past few years to the rapid adoption of the electric motor: reduced autonomy between two loads and charging time. As you've noticed that the latest phone models "hold" more than their predecessors, so the electric cars have greater autonomy. The new models of electric cars are equipped with lithium-polymer batteries, similar to those in mobile phones. These vehicles display hundreds of kilometers of autonomy and can be charged to special, high power outlets in cities and along main national roads in less than an hour.
Once you realize that you will not stay in traffic, with the battery drained of energy after a short road, say home from office, it's time to talk about the other advantages of the electric motor. The first would be to eliminate oil consumption and oil filters. This means that at least once a year you will say "step" to the paid service visit. You will do the same with the brake pads. For energy recovery models that turn braking into electric power, the brake pads are much less used and so much less changed. Moreover, because the electric motor does not have so many moving parts, it wears out much harder, which is a reason to go down to service. All these elements make electrical machines more reliable than those with internal combustion. Over time, you will experience fewer service hours and fewer expenditures on consumables. In other words, the total cost of using electric cars decreases (compared to the use of internal combustion engines) as you use them more intensely! There is a minimal run after which the use of an electric motor becomes more economical than the one with internal propulsion, but it differs from class to class. We will return to a future material with calculations and examples.
To these advantages are added subsidies and tax exemptions. For example, the subsidy for a full electric car amounts to 45,000 lei. Last year the number of electric cars reached 710, an increase of three times the level in 2017. The number of plug-in hybrid models (where the "only" 20,000 lei) sold in 2018 was 570, increased by 2.5 times compared to 2017, and the hybrid models reached the 5,200 units sold, up 70% from 2017! With the use of organic cars, the network of loading points in Romania is growing rapidly. This is how it has evolved in recent years:
