Electric vehicles don't need oil changes, gaskets, cylinder head treatments, spark plugs, clogged valves, or gasoline.
Most of us grew up in large families and started driving on our own at the age of 16. We know what it's like to own a car, but we don't know much about electric vehicles. Simply put, electric vehicles have more in common with smartphones than conventional cars. You don't need to change oil, change gaskets, refinish cylinder heads, change spark plugs, clog valves, or change gasoline. And this is the most important thing.
The need to use gasoline in an internal combustion engine is simple. It's fuel. That's why you need a gas station. Not only do we not want to have a large gas tank under the house, but we also do not want to pump city gas directly into the house. This is not a good idea. On the other hand, electricity is readily available in every home, building and workplace. You cannot build a gas station in your garage, but you can install an electric vehicle charger.
Imagine that you have to walk around the city in search of a special charging point to charge your mobile phone. It would be an absolute nightmare.
It's hard to imagine, but think if your smartphone didn't have a charger. Imagine that you have to wander the streets in search of a special charging point to charge your mobile phone. It would be an absolute nightmare. The same applies to the public service of electric vehicles. Sure, it's great for when you need it or you're on the road, but it's not fun or ideal for every day use. The ability to charge at home makes it even better. Go home, plug it in, and forget about it until you need to use your car again. Everything is very simple.
Honestly, do you really enjoy driving to the gas station? Nobody does and it takes five minutes. Now imagine that you have to drive to the gas station every day for two hours. It sounds really bad, but that's exactly what we want to do with today's public charging networks. Even overloading a Tesla in about 40 minutes is not the best solution for daily driving.
Honestly, who really enjoys driving around gas stations?
Supervisors or fast pacers are just part of the success of the electric vehicle ecosystem. It's what 90% of automakers and would-be EV drivers focus on and effectively solves about 10% of charging problems. Building a public fast-charging network is important, but bringing chargers into people's homes is far more important.The problem is not only convenience, but also fun, and electric cars will never take off until this problem is completely solved.
