A peek at sustainable, zero-CO2 emission electric cars
Electrical cars are the vehicles of the future. Compared to a conventional car, an electrical vehicle (EV) is built for long-term savings and protection for the environment.
An electric car runs on battery, which means that you don’t need to spend on petrol or diesel just to go around. And it is more economical because the battery is able to run one third as much per kilometre compared to a petrol-run vehicle.
An EV also has fewer parts, which means that the owner will have lower maintenance costs. Even though the battery does need to be replaced eventually, the usual warranty runs for eight years so you should be covered well for a long interval of time.
An electric car is also good for the environment. The battery can be charged with renewable energy like solar power, which produces lesser greenhouse gas emissions compared to other means. And because there’s no diesel nor petrol required to run the EV, you are assured you are running with zero carbon emissions.
Cheaper to run, good for the environment, and cheaper to maintain–what else do you need from an electric car?
If you’re considering switching to an EV, these are our recommendations.
Kia Niro EV
Spacious, stylish, but no-nonsense, the Kia Niro EV comes with 50kW DC fast chargers that can fill up to 80 percent just in about 1 hour and 15 minutes.
