Ways Electric Cars Will Change the World

Published

on

Electric cars are still new to the world market, but they’re already changing how we think about cars and even petroleum itself. Here are 10 ways that electric cars will change the world in the years to come

1) Save Money on Fuel
The average U.S. household spends more than $2,400 on gas each year, according to AAA. By switching to an electric car, you’ll save thousands over your lifetime thanks to cheap charging costs and government incentives that can lower your price tag by up to half of a new gasoline-powered vehicle.

2) Reduce Your Carbon Footprint
The average car on American roads emits about 4.7 metric tons of carbon dioxide annually, which is more than twice as much as a typical American household. According to NASA, fossil fuels account for over one-fifth of greenhouse gas emissions globally—which has implications not only for our planet but also our health.

3) Reducing Global Warming
An electric car’s emissions are much lower than that of a petroleum-based car. Petroleum cars emit harmful gases such as sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxide, and carbon monoxide. All of these gases have been linked to air pollution and global warming. Additionally, greenhouse gas emissions associated with petroleum fuels are believed to be causing climate change; electric cars produce zero greenhouse gas emissions.

4) Health Benefits
By powering electric cars with clean energy sources like solar and wind, we can stop emitting a toxic cocktail of greenhouse gases (including carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide, and nitrogen oxides) into our atmosphere. This pollution contributes to thousands of premature deaths annually in California alone. In addition to making our air cleaner and less toxic, we’ll also be reducing dependence on foreign oil while reducing oil prices at home—and by burning less fuel, EVs will lower overall emissions as well.

5) Less Pollution
Electric cars are better for our environment. Even if they still use gasoline, they produce far less pollution than their petroleum-powered counterparts. This isn’t just good for human health; it’s also great for animal life and ecosystem as a whole. By choosing an electric car over one that runs on gas, you can help improve air quality around you. Plus, you won’t have to worry about harming nearby animals when driving on your commute.

6) Goodbye, Gas Stations!
Everyone likes to complain about their local gas station, with its dingy bathrooms and bad coffee. But it’s important to remember that a lot of people work at those stations—and a whole lot more depend on them for employment. Soon, however, we may all say goodbye to gas stations. Long-range electric cars could make gas pumps obsolete. Say hello to battery charging points instead!

7) Cheaper to Own and Maintain
Gas cars are expensive to buy and maintain. The average price of gas for a large sedan is about $3.36 per gallon. At that rate, you can expect to pay about $1,600 for gas alone in one year’s time (based on 15,000 miles driven). Over a five-year span, that’s an extra $8,000 spent on fuel—over $16,000 when accounting for inflation!

8) Easier Commuting, On Road and Off Road
The average American spends about 55 minutes driving each day. In many places, commute times are increasing. An electric car will make it much easier to commute to work (and get some exercise while you’re at it). You’ll also be able to plug your vehicle into a charging station and charge your car at night—meaning more convenience when getting around town. At home, you can even invest in an electric bike or scooter for transportation during off-peak hours.

9) Advanced Autonomous Features
Today’s cars are becoming increasingly automated, with features like adaptive cruise control, automatic parking, and collision avoidance. But those features require human involvement—our cars can drive themselves, but only if we pay attention. Soon that won’t be true. Autonomous vehicles will hit streets before long; they may even replace personal automobiles altogether. How will that change our lives?
