EVs - Lower Your Emissions. Not your Standards
The misconception about electric vehicles is that they are limited in range and features.
That because they need to charge for a certain amount of time, they require owners to sacrifice time and flexibility.
But here’s the thing… there is no sacrifice.
It’s a shift in the way we think about cars and driving.
Until recently, the only way we knew how to operate and continue using a vehicle was by refuelling it. We monitor the gas consumption, and when it’s running low, we take it to a designated gas station to fill up the tank. This is how we have learned to operate a car. This has been our norm.
Now, comes the electric vehicle. We can install a charger in our home garage and plug in our car every night. Each morning, we can start our day with a fully charged vehicle. Also, charging stations are now coming to us. They are installed in populated areas such as shopping malls, grocery stores, and coffee shops.
And this is just the beginning.
Imagine that as the infrastructure advances in our cities, charging stations will become even more accessible. Imagine plugging in your car every day at work, at the doctor’s office or at the gym. Imagine letting your six-year-old daughter plug in your car the next time you drive her to her piano lessons. It’s clean, easy, and safe, so why not.
Driving long distances is not a limitation on EVs. Fast charging stations are available across major highways, and there will be more available going forward. Electric vehicle battery technology is continuously advancing to allow longer range and efficiency.
Today, charging stations are being installed in more places than you may know. Airports have charging stations, and some are free. Parks and tourist areas offer charging stations. Downtown parking lots have designated spots with chargers.
And more often now, condo buildings will have charging stations.
It’s only a matter of time, and it’s up to us to be open to this change. The more we can accept this transition, the sooner we will make the shift from fuel to electricity, and the sooner we will notice the upgrade in our way of driving and living.
The idea is to lower our emissions….Not our standards.
