The United Kingdom had already said that the objective is to ban the sale of gasoline and diesel cars in 2040. That is, to make all new vehicles sold to be electric cars. Well, Boris Johnson, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, anticipated that date to 2035. The objective is to make the United Kingdom a country with zero emissions on the roads.
Electric cars are the future, of that there is no doubt
At the beginning, there were still questions regarding the implementation of electric cars in our daily lives. However, with the latest technological advances and the bets of the manufacturers in this sector, it seems that the path is already traced.
If you are one of those who still look at 2035 as a distant date, do the simple exercise of reversing 15 years. That is, 2035 is at the same distance as 2005. And if I remember correctly, Euro 2004 is still fresh in our memory.
Electric cars are the future, however, they are still far from ideal transport. This is because the charging wait time is still long (even in the fastest ones) and its autonomy continues to fall short.
You can’t have the best of both worlds, at least for now. However, the UK believes that technological advances will be made in 15 years to address all of these problems.
Main advantages of an electric car
- The environment thanks you with less carbon emissions
- Quieter driving
- Good starting power in most cases
Potential disadvantages of an electric car
- Few charging locations
- Charging time
- Little autonomy (in most cases)
- Silent driving can be a disadvantage
- Battery change (may take 3 to 10 years)
- Generally higher price
Their prices will drop soon
Finally, the price of electric cars must fall considerably. With the technological development and the availability of equipment on a large scale, the prices of electric cars will become affordable to all soon.
