With increasing awareness about the sustainability and social development, more drivers are switching to EVs. However, there is a misunderstanding about the range of electrical vehicle battery capacity called ‘range anxiety’. The fact is the a typical American drives 25 to 35 miles per day, which accounts for only one third of an EV with 100 mile range.
The following schedule illustrates simply how easy and practical it is to drive an electric vehicle.
Morning: unplug and hit the road
Noon: drive a few miles to lunch
Late in the afternoon: leave for home and plug in and forget about the car. The car would shut down charging system automatically once fully charged. Besides, since this one day, the drive consumes no more than 30% of the battery capacity (100 miles EV range), it only needs around 1 hour or so to get back to the full 100 range capacity and does not necessarily to be fully-charged every time.
Even for the trips exceeding 100 miles, you would not stuck in the situation of running out of juice. It is getting easier to find EV chargers around business charging stations or restaurants. And most of them are free to use!
