Welcome to the electric future. After touting electric cars and EVs for over a decade, automakers are rolling out electric-powered cars and vehicles more and more, giving drivers in Round Lake and Grayslake more options for affordable EVs.
Are you interested in upgrading to a ride that enhances your commute and is also great for the environment? We’re here to discuss facts about electric cars and EVs, and why you should consider them over gas-powered vehicles.
London innovator Thomas Park was in charge of the city’s overhead tramways electrification to make transport throughout the city easier. He designed and built the electric vehicle to reduce low-efficient and environmentally friendly cars with his EC because they were fueled by high-capacity rechargeable batteries. Of course, the design of EVs has changed a lot in the past century and a half!
Electric vehicles aren’t just for sedan and SUV enthusiasts. You can spot electric buses cruising in big cities, FedEx delivery vehicles, and heavy-duty zero-emissions trucks throughout the Waukegan area. Trucks offer excellent economic savings as they’re cheaper to fuel and operate compared to diesel trucks. Another great EV is for light rail transport. If you ever see power lines directly above railroad tracks, electric-powered engines use special braces to contact those wires for zero-emissions passenger trains that cruise between and within metropolitan areas.
Many shoppers worry about buying plug-in hybrids or EVs because they don’t think there are enough charging stations. Not only are there more charging stations popping up in your area, but you can turn your garage into an at-home charging station. Auto dealers will typically give you options to install an upgrade to your garage that allows for faster charging of your electric vehicle overnight.
Having an EV doesn’t limit you to just charging your vehicle at home. You can charge your vehicle at work, your grocery store, the mall, or any other major establishment that has a charging station. There are more than 40,000 public charging stations in the United States alone!
Most people know battery EVs, plugin-in, and hybrid vehicles. Did you know there are five categories of electric vehicles on Zion streets?
