Electric is now

May 3rd, 2013

Since its introduction, electric automobiles did not meet public opposition in the same level as that given to steam and gasoline cars. This was believed to be due to its comparatively low speeds and silent operation. Today, the fact that electric cars do not produce localized emissions appear to be getting the attention of manufacturers and consumers who have realized that something more has to be done to take better care of the environment.

Electric cars are propelled by electric motors that run on batteries either charged at home or charging stations specifically for electric vehicles. Newly developed electric cars have become extremely efficient and cost much cheaper that any other alternative fuel to run. Electric cars enthusiasts believe that a truly clean and sustainable mobility is only possible through this option.

The designs of the early electric automobiles were quite simple. A large band of storage batteries connected to a powerful driving motor by heavy cables are found under the hood. The motor was mounted just in front of the rear axle. Thirty miles an hour was about the top speed and 50 miles was about the distance covered before battery recharging was needed. Electric vehicles have come and gone due to that elusive battery that is lightweight yet packs power and able to transport passengers for any distance. There are several existing batteries that show much promise in providing this need. However, they remain too expensive for regular consumers. Some of these cars are now resold by their original owners with cheap options available in the Dallas used cars market as well as used cars Arlington sales.

Trends in the international market show progress in providing support for mass scale commercialization of electric vehicles. As the shipment of electric vehicles in small volume happen this year, concerned authorities will have to determine how to provide the infrastructure that will make it work. Charging access has to be available at home and the community where it is to be used for it to work. There will also be a need to consider the overall impact of the additional demand for power due to electronic vehicle charging as related to grid reliability. These newer models may be available as soon as next year with cars hitting the used market a year or two later. So if you’re in the market for electing used cars Irving, you may not have long to wait.
