Driving is among the many things I love. My dad taught me how to do it even before I turned 16. We would go around the town together with me in the driver’s seat while he would sit at the passenger’s side, pointing out what I should sometimes do. Thus, when it was time for me to apply for a license, I aced the written and practical exams with flying colors.
Fast forward to 2019, I am almost 25 years old now, and I still love driving. I have bought my first auto recently, too–an electric car.
Yes, it has taken me almost a decade before getting a vehicle despite my passion for driving. I used not to get bothered by the fact that I was driving my dad’s old car. I’d much rather do that than pay for something that I knew I didn’t want deep down in my heart. But when I saw an electric vehicle, it was love at first ride.
Now, rechargeable cars are not for everyone. It will only be perfect for you if:
You Are Into Eco-Friendly Stuff
In case you have not seen one in person, you should know that electric vehicles only run on electrical energy. It does not burn through diesel, gasoline, and other oils. So, you can say that you are doing something great for the environment by getting one.
You Are Single Or Has A Small Family
Their sizes usually tend to be on the small side, although manufacturers are starting to make electric vans. Building a large auto, after all, will mean needing more electricity and raising its market value. Because of that, it is the right car for single people or individuals with a small family.
You Don’t Do Road Trips
Road trips are exciting, especially during summertime. You can go to the next state with your windows down or travel a thousand miles to see a beautiful beach.
However, long travels may not be suitable for an electric car. You see, while their popularity has risen over the years, there are still some areas that don’t have charging ports available. If you find any, it may already be too crowded then due to the other tourists. Not to mention, an electric vehicle is not like a conventional one that will run again as soon as you fill it up with gas.
So, an electric car is only perfect for you if you like traveling long distances by air.
You Don’t Mind Waiting For Your Car To Recharge
The last indication that an electric vehicle will suit your taste is that you have lengthy patience. After all, it should stay plugged in for up to 12 hours, depending on its model. Getting impatient will not speed up the charging time, so you should buy an electric car if you don’t mind waiting.
Despite the benefits that come with having an electric vehicle, there’s no doubt that one size doesn’t fit all. It may be for me, but it may not be for you, and that’s okay. Nevertheless, if you are considering to get an electric car, you should identify the signs above.
