Electric Cars Advantages & Disadvantages

It's a big decision buying a new car. With environmental concerns and EV technology improving every year; is now the right time for you to buy an electric car?

Advantages of Electric Vehicles

  1. Lower Fuel Costs - Electric fuel costs about a third per kilometre, compared to petrol for similar vehicle types
  2. Zero CO2 Emissions - Unlike petrol, EVs do not pump carbon dioxide into the environment
  3. Cheaper Maintenance Costs - EVs don't have as many moving parts and are less likely to have problems. Servicing is also easier or cheaper
  4. Quieter to Run - which means lower noise pollution
  5. Government Incentives - No stamp duty in ACT and $100 annual reduction in registration fees for Victoria (Nov.2019)
  6. Improving Technology - Means cheaper EVs with a better running range with some EVs now over 300 kilometres
  7. Cleaner Better World - As well as no CO2, EVs do not emit other environmental pollutants into the air
  8. Off the Grid - It's possible to go 100% solar and off the grid

Disadvantages of Electric Vehicles

  1. Cost of New EVs - Prices are coming down, but like for like, they are more expensive than petrol vehicles to buy new, but cheaper to run
  2. Fewer Recharge Points - With fewer places to charge your EV than petrol vehicles, long trips may need to be planned in advance. The good news is more and more recharge points are being added every week
  3. Driving Range - Most of today's EVs have a range between 50 and 300 kilometres between charges
  4. Time to Charge - It may be inconvenient to wait five or six hours for your EV to fully charge, but quick charges up to 80% of your battery may only take around 30 or 40 minutes
  5. Home Charging Point - Depending on where you live, you may need to install a charging point in your home
  6. Quieter to Run - Although also an advantage, it may lead to accidents with unsuspecting pedestrians or cyclists. Some newer models are equipped with noise-making devices to alert pedestrians and cyclists.
  7. Peak Electric Costs - Charging your EV during peak electricity hours may push costs up, but off peak costs are significantly cheaper than using petrol

Green Car Loan FAQs

The cost of electricity varies with each provider, however studies (in the USA) have shown that you should expect to pay around a third of the costs per kilometre for electricity than with petrol. Remember that peak electricity costs will eat into this cost saving. If you generate your electricity yourself via solar, it could be free.

Distances are getting better as the technology advances, but you can expect anywhere between 50km and 350km depending on the electric car model you choose. Do your research before you buy.

A Google Maps search for EV charging stations will show you an updated list of charging points in your area. Myelectriccar.com.au has an interactive map of Australia for you to see EV coverage in your area. Once you have your EV, check the SatNav or download a mobile app for everyday coverage.

A super fast charge will take about 30 minutes, when you are out and about. This will give you about an 80% charge of your battery. When charging at home for a 100% charge overnight will generally take about 4 or 5 hours. Check your preferred vehicle specifications for details on that particular model as times may vary.
