Living With An Electric Car Changed My Mind

How Driving A 2018 Nissan Leaf Long Term Changed My View Of EVs Electric Cars & The Environment - Subscribe for new videos every Wednesday! - EE Shirts! - Recommended Books & Car Products - Living with an electric car for six months changed my mind about how I feel about them. I have range anxiety. When you're driving a Nissan Leaf, it has the equivalent energy in the battery pack of less than two gallons of gasoline. That not only tells you how energy dense gasoline is, but also how wildly efficient electric cars are, as the Leaf gets 150 miles on the equivalent of 1.2 gallons of gas. And while the benefits of electric cars are clear, for example instant torque, quiet ride, low CG, and much more emissions friendly, they do come with lower range and longer recharging times versus filling a gasoline tank. So after living with a 151 mile range Nissan Leaf for 6 months, how do I now feel about EVs? Quite different, actually. Check out the video for full details!

The latest addition to the Engineering Explained garage is an electric car! In the United States, electric cars make up less than 2% of the overall market, yet that number has nearly doubled since 2013. That is to say, the electric car revolution is coming, and I'll be experiencing life with an electric car before the majority of folks make the jump.

While in today's world electric cars don't make perfect sense for every scenario, they do offer plenty of advantages over gasoline or diesel powered cars. They have instant acceleration when you put your foot down, peak torque from zero RPM, they're far more energy efficient - meaning you spend less on "refilling the tank," and they don't have any emissions. This makes EVs great for city environments where travel distances are relatively short, and congestion is high. Check out the video for more information on the EV series I'm starting with Formula E!
