Electric car hire Prague – Electric vehicles with their benefits
You might have already heard that the electric vehicles (EVs) have many great advantages over the classic petrol and diesel cars. Here are some of them.
Lower running costs
It is widely known that EVs have lower running costs. But by how much? For comparison, the cost of electricity per kilometer is about two-thirds of the cost of petrol per kilometer for the same car. To calculate how much you can save just use some of the calculators available online or you can contact us here.
Lower maintaining costs
Each one of us is fully aware of all the parts of a conventional diesel/petrol vehicle that can be broken or damaged. The parts such as exhaust systems, starter motors, fuel injection systems, radiators and many others can be very expensive. A battery electric vehicle doesn’t need any of them, leaving it with only one moving part – the rotor. That makes BEVs very durable, strong and simple. Just take good care of the brakes, tires, and suspensions and you can reduce a significant amount of maintaining costs. But what about batteries? Yes, that is true, they finally wear out. Most EV batteries have about an 8-year warranty. After that, you will need a replacement. That applies to battery only to EVs. Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, which also have a petrol engine can require more lifetime money. However putting the petrol engine next to the low maintenance electric one, leads to less wear on the first one and again, lower maintaining costs. Electric car hire Prague
Lower other costs
Some countries offer additional benefits for EV owners. Most of the times it is in the form of reduced fees and money investment. In Australia if you register your EV in the ACT you can go without paying the stamp-duty and registering in Victoria saves you $100 on registration fees. Every year.
