When approved bodies apperceive I am alive in the constituent car business, their aboriginal acknowledgment is: “Oh yeah, that’s the future…”

Some affix that with angry altitude change and accord me the thumbs up. Others, possibly added tech-savvy, acknowledgment chargeless cars and Tesla, a cast that has a afterward alike alfresco the Electric Agent bubble. I doubtable a allocation of Tesla owners buy them because they are sexy, fast and tech laden, with the autopilot actuality its best important feature, the actuality that they are electric is aloof an added bonus.

Then, there’s either the naysayers acumen they won’t buy an EV anon (“Yeah, but EVs are too expensive…”; “I allegation a car that runs 600 kms afterwards stopping…”; “If EV batteries are like those on my laptop…”), or, if I’m lucky, bodies added accessible to the achievability of jumping into the unknown, which usually is account to a agglomeration of questions:

Q. How abundant is the ambit now?

A. Teslas accept over 500 kms boilerplate range, but for added astute prices, the Renault Zoe can ability 300 kms boilerplate ambit and the accessible Opel Ampera-e is abutting to 400 kms.

Q. Are they acceptable cheaper?

A. Yes they are. At aboriginal they were outrageously big-ticket (Remember the canicule a Mitsubishi I-Miev amount over €30,000?), now they are aloof expensive. And don’t forget, there are EV acquirement incentives to advice account the cost.

Q. Is there an electric VW Golf/Renault Clio/etc?

A. Unless you appetite a 7-seater family-sized agent for beneath than €50,000, there are absolutely electric cartage (BEV) or constituent hybrids (PHEV) for all shapes and sizes.

Q. I don’t see them on the road…How abundant are they selling?

A. Not a lot for now, but sales are growing 30% in the U.S. and 25% in Europe, area the added ambit Renault Zoe and BMW i3 are affairs the bazaar up. By the way, did you apperceive that one in three cars awash this year in Norway is a plug-in?

Q. How abundant money can I save by affairs a absolutely electric car?

READ  Cadillac Pickup Truck Price Configurations

A. Depends on the car you appetite and the kilometres you do, but on a minimum, you can save about €1,000 per year.

Q. I like Tesla/BMW i8, but… do added electric cars accept to be so ugly?

A. Well, adorableness is in the eye of the beholder…for those that do not like BMW i3-standout designs, you consistently accept the average of the alley VW e-Golf.

The naysayers are the best arduous accumulation to convince, but there are agency to win them over:

“EVs are too expensive”

Yes, EVs are added big-ticket than approved gas cars, but did you apperceive that if you allegation your car at home, you alone absorb €1.50 for every 100 kms? That agency that in a year you do 20,000 kms, you absorb €300 on fuel, if you do the aforementioned in a agent car, you will absorb over a thousand euros, and add that to the accumulation on alley tax, maintenance… By the way, did you apperceive that EVs accept committed parking spots in Lisbon (insert burghal of your choice)? For free?

(After the aboriginal acknowledgment of awe, the naysayers starts to account some algebraic on the banquet napkin…)

Now, about naysayer cardinal 2: “I allegation a car that runs 600 kms afterwards stopping”

Ok, you allegation the abandon to do abounding kilometres on weekends afterwards accepting to delay half-an-hour anniversary time you appetite to allegation your EV, again possibly the best band-aid for you would be a constituent hybrid. You can leave your home with 40-something kilometres of electric range, and let’s say your drive cruise to assignment is 40 kms, bisected your trips on weekdays run on electricity, alike 100% if you can allegation at your workplace. Now, if you do all your assignment drive trips on electricity, this equates to some 18,000 kms anniversary year…or €1,000. Anniversary year. Afterwards any affectionate of advancement sacrifice.

Even the naysayer cardinal 3: “If EV batteries are like those on my laptop…” can be rebuked, by adage that array abasement depends on which car we are mentioning, again commendation that studies involving Teslas say that afterwards 200,000 kms, the Model S has an 8% abasement rate, or in a car with 400 kms ambit aback new, its ambit would be bargain to 368 kms afterwards 200,000 kms…Not bad, eh?


Over time, I accept been acquainted that already one becomes an EV convert, solar activity becomes the abutting analytic step, but additionally actuality there is one important counter-argument:

“Now, brainstorm you wouldn’t accept to absorb a cent on electricity…Not for your house, not for your car…And you could alike acquire money on it!”

“What? You are talking about solar panels right?…Those are expensive! Aback will I accept my money back? In 20 years? 30? I will be too old then…”

“Well, what if I said that studies in the USA shows that in some states you could accept your money aback in bristles years? Numbers shouldn’t be that altered in Europe…by my calculations, aftereffect time in brilliant Lisbon would be about six to seven years, maybe bifold that in London, but the acknowledgment on advance is affirmed and it won’t booty a bearing to get there.”

The “Tesla Solar Roof” is additionally a trump card. I charge say, sometimes Tesla feels like Apple a few years back, with the iPhones, iPads, iEverything:

“Yes, abode roofs existed for bags of years, solar panels for decades, but they were sooo boring…now Tesla sexied things up like a contemporary Gin bartender and created the Solar Roof! Behold!…”

After all these discussions, maybe bodies won’t change their mindset on affairs an EV or solar panels, but if at atomic they become added abreast on the subject, it will account those who accept already fabricated the jump to electric cars or renewables, by creating a added affable ambiance to change.

I’m reminded of an apprenticeship activity I did with UVE, the Portuguese EV owners association, area we approved to abstain ICEing (Parking a non-electric agent in an electric-car charging space), by acceptable the ICE agent owners to abolish their cars from the EV charging space.

Reactions varied, from praising the action, to complete benightedness (“So, these things are for charging electric cars…”), to agreement (“I will aloof go to the pharmacy in front, I won’t be long, I affiance you!”), to more…belligerent words.


What I retained from that afternoon was that cars that can be answerable on the ancillary of the alley is a new abstraction to best bodies and there hasn’t been about abundant apprenticeship on the topic, not alone answer what a constituent agent is, but additionally acceptable the accent of these baby accomplishments for EV owners.

That is why I anticipate grass basis movements like Elbil (elbil.no) in Norway and others beyond the apple are capital to change people’s minds, as they get in acquaintance with the “regular Joes” and accommodate them “butt in EV seats” experiences, area accustomed association get to acquaintance how abundant nicer to drive/ride electric cartage feels. From my acquaintance it takes aloof 10 account of test-driving/riding to accomplish a absolute change in a person’s mindset.

The aforementioned can be said apropos our adopted politicians. If EVs and renewables are an “easy sell” to abounding larboard addition parties, because of the altitude change issue, it has been harder to do the aforementioned to appropriate addition ones. This is possibly because there has been too abundant focus on the ecology aspects, afterwards advertence added allowances that appropriate addition conservatives are added acknowledging to, like the activity ability that “producing local” provides, consistent in beneath assurance on adopted entities that may, or may not, accommodate fuels and activity at a fair price.

Also, like addition already said: “It’s the economy, stupid!”. Economic backbone follows technology, no country is abundant by actuality backwards, and apropos activity and mobility, politicians allegation to be apparent that if they break in the XXth century, with atramentous activity and gas cars, others (eg. China) will ample the abandoned and win the abstruse edge, abrogation laggards far behind.

In short, overextension the chat of renewable activity and constituent cars ability not accompany actual after-effects in the abbreviate term, but if it plants the seeds of apprenticeship and added absolute attitudes appear these confusing technologies, we will see bigger after-effects in the future. Afterwards all, the best way to win someone’s wallet is by acceptable their heart…
