Electric Vehicles are a better long-term solution

Zero emissions: Electric vehicles have a real environmental impact. Reduced carbon footprint, reduced running costs, and tax incentives make them an attractive option for personal purposes, city fleets, university parking & mail departments, campus maintenance, indoor construction sites, and the last-mile delivery industry. An MIT interactive online tool estimates that, on average, a light duty electric vehicle will produce 189 grams of carbon dioxide for every mile driven over its lifetime. By contrast, a new, similar, gasoline-fueled vehicle is estimated to produce 385 grams per mile.

Save on escalating fuel costs: According to the US Department of Energy, charging an electric car costs about half as much as fueling a gasoline-powered car. Sometimes charging may be offered as a free benefit (included in public parking costs). Home charging may take advantage of overnight reduced utility rates. See how much you can save in our Fuel Savings Calculator.

Reduced maintenance: To keep an electric car running costs less when compared to conventional automobiles, as stated by Forbes. When compared to combustion units, some vehicles run on the latest Lithium-ion batteries that balance themselves for a longer lifecycle.

Lithium-ion battery benefits highlights

Debunking the price myth for electric vehicles

Upfront costs:  In comparison, electric vehicles may cost 10-25% more than combustion vehicles.  However, commercial and technical solutions continue to arrive and it is expected that in the near future this difference will vanish. According to a PwC study, EVs will reach their TCO (Total cost of ownership)  parity for the first three years of ownership by 2025.

Note: Fuel and electricity prices. The high-capacity and material cost of Lithium-ion batteries are often why the initial price tag is higher for EVs. However, higher upfront costs are covered by fuel savings within 2-3 years. A Lithium-ion battery has an approximate lifecycle of 6-10 years, so there is plenty of time over the vehicles life cycle to offset the higher upfront cost.

Maintenance: In the long run, maintenance and downtime associated with combustion vehicles will contribute to the electric vehicle popularity and overcome the apparent initial price benefits from gas vehicles. An EV has a fraction of the wearable components used in an ICU gas engine.
