  • Glideman
    Glideman 11 месяцев назад (изменено) Most EV owners charge from home. We pay 5p per KW for electric and on my 30kw LEAF that works out at around £1 per day for around 80 miles. Remembering you never use all 30kw every day. I used to run a V8 petrol Range Rover & one tank of fuel would cost me £100 per week. As you can see the cost savings are massive. Plus no tax, no repairs or much servicing. The best part however is the feeling you get when driving past petrol stations & watching other drivers emptying their wallet into fuel tanks! The world will be a better place when nobody’s driving around in polluting cars or sat outside school pumping fumes out for children to breath.
  • Dura Ace
    Dura Ace 11 месяцев назад Glideman I’m in the UK and considering an EV, who sells Electricity at 5p a unit? I’ve found Economy 7 Tariffs but not that low

    captain pugwash 11 месяцев назад You only get low tarrifs like this if you pay about 25 p per hour peak, so the true average electricity price is much more than 5p, therefore reality is somewhat different to what you are saying, unless you sit in the dark with all electricity in your house off around tea time lol.

    WTFIWFYDB 10 месяцев назад Comparing this car to Range Rover's fuel economy and repair cost?) Are you mad? Rover is a big money pit, gasoline equivalent of this Nissan would be - Honda Fit, Chevy Spark, Fiat 500. Then you can compare the mpg vs mpge, maintenance cost, difference in upfront payment, battery replacement cost, etc. And then the story would be much different.
    WTFIWFYDB 10 месяцев назад Also there are ecological issues with battery manufacturing and disposal. So you need to factor that in while discussing ecological benefit.
  • PriceyUK
    PriceyUK 9 месяцев назад Likewise, the best part for non-EV drivers is when they drive past you sat waiting 45 minutes to 'fill up' your measly 150-200 mile range lmao

  • Sakarias Karlsson
    Sakarias Karlsson 8 месяцев назад (изменено) Well the problem with current ev’s is that for most people its still ”spend a lot to save a little” batteries needs to get cheaper and easier to quickcharge and electric cars needs to offer similar performance to alternatives in their price class (except model s, its way too expensive for most)

  • Dave Fitzpatrick
    Dave Fitzpatrick 7 месяцев назад @WTFIWFYDB battery replacement, pmsl, most manufacturers have a 8 year warranty on them, in 8 years electric cars will be mainstream, when batteries loose range its normally only a few cells that are the issue! 8 years down the line there will be garages that offer battery upgrades ( as servicing Ice vehicles becomes obsolete) the chemistry in these cells would also of improved, so your replacement cells will more than likely improve your original range! A growing portion of ev owners will also install solar panels, supplying free power for house & car! Do some research in future its obvious you don't have a clue
  • Dave Fitzpatrick
    Dave Fitzpatrick 7 месяцев назад @PriceyUK solid state batteries are just a couple of years off, & the new Hyundai Kona electric will do 320 miles on one charge ( I think after driving that far a 35 minute break maybe in order) solid state batteries will fill up in minutes & will have a life cycle of around 1 million charges ( probably last long enough for you & then your kids) do some research it's amazing what you actually learn
  • Dave Fitzpatrick
    Dave Fitzpatrick 7 месяцев назад @DR. NITIN DEORA false, renewable energy is on the increase, only thing that stops being used more is the fact it's often available when not required ( wind turbines are now the cheapest form of energy) . So imagine 15 million cars all attached to the grid ( 90% of the time cars aren't used) what do you have? A massive storage system, you'll have a contract with your energy supplier where they can access 2-3 kWh of energy from your car at peak times ( the grid will be smart) in return the extra power produced by wind turbines/solar when not required will be available to those will the same contacts ( for a small fee no doubt). Again do so research

  • taz874
    taz874 3 месяца назад wait so your telling me a Range Rover is expensive to run? wow i never would of thought hey. seriously im all for electric cars but dont go comparing the cost to run them to a Range Rover that is probably one of the most expensive gasline cars to run. you would be better of comparing it to say a VW polo or something. Also the one problem with electric cars is the range yes while they are improving some people like me for example commute around 200 miles on a regular basis. i really cant afford to wait half an hour for my car to charge
  • soundseeker63
    soundseeker63 3 месяца назад @Reggie Buffat Do you realise that less than 30% of the UK's total electricity is generated from renewables? So at present there is a good chance these electric cars are being charged on power from gas, oil or coal. It's not eliminating the problem, merely shifting it away from the point of use. People who think they are morally superior because they drive an electric car need a realty check. Sure they are good in urban environments but they are not the panacea some people like to think they are.

You want to save Money, you buy a larger Honda Civic!!! For 18k as supposed to spending 26k with 8k in your pocket fuel & tax becomes irrelevant for the next 7 years. . if we pretend electricity is 100% Free

  • morbeus Morbeus
    morbeus Morbeus 1 месяц назад @LP Youtube Channel being in mechanical engineering for the last 49 yrs I know oil is recyclable. The oil itself doesn`t break down, the lubrication properties deteriorate due to increasing air born contaminants, carbon build up caused by running at high temperatures, wear metals from bearings, cylinders, piston rings etc, acids building up from moisture if the engine is run to cold and the additives to prevent foaming and sludging breaking down. Yes it can be recycled but that in itself consumes huge amounts of energy.
  • LP Youtube Channel
    LP Youtube Channel 1 месяц назад (изменено) @morbeus Morbeus in life we often to have to take our own conclusions and ignore what markting says because they always say the same thing, BUY, BUY, BUY, the car I bought 2 years ago should be scrapped and I should get my 5th Car in the last 7 year's . This is exactly what causes pollution, constantly buying cars, waste, waste, this Notion if we buy Tesla with 18.650 cells we will save the world, is ridiculous, we can't buy our way out of emissions problems, because buying and wasting is exactly what causes problems

The EU should have made one connector valid in Europe. These two things, along with only one charging point within twenty minutes of my house and work puts me off electric. I would commit today if those issues were fixed. Faster charging would also be a bonus - if we can get to the five minutes to fill up with fuel there won't be fossil fueled run cars on the road!

    Nikhil Nadasan 11 месяцев назад craigix maybe in certain places yes but not everywhere and thats guaranteed. Also its the process...stopping by a station for 45min to hours to get a charge. You will have to plan in advance..with that you cant really travel anywhere far and to maximise range youll definitely be in discomfort with no heater or ac and limited electronic use.
  • Nikhil Nadasan
    Nikhil Nadasan 11 месяцев назад Wiktor Kawala absolutely agreed. You have to plan in advance when getting these cars. Its great for the small commutes but daily driving and long distance sets you back alot as to consider charging for 45min to 3 hours.
  • Nikhil Nadasan
    Nikhil Nadasan 11 месяцев назад Mr October still wont give you the required range if you driving far. The average buyer which is who this car is aimed at..will need a car to travel long and short distances. There is so much space in the car due to only being operated by batteries im absolutely sure they can add batteries or develo a battery with longer range.

  • Vic Sandhu
    Vic Sandhu 11 месяцев назад Get a hybrid if you drive daily? Well I wouldn't say that. If you drive over 100-150 miles a day you are a negligible percentage of the population i.e. pointless.

  • ritar
    ritar 11 месяцев назад (изменено) Nikhil Nadasan I think most people charge at home at night in daily use. Rapid chargers are for only long trips, in which we usually use highway. It's really easy to find a charger on highway, at least in Japan. Also, drivers should definitely take a rest after driving multiple hundred kilometres. So if you have to travel several hundred kilometres without using highway every single day, EVs are not for you.
  • Vic Sandhu
    Vic Sandhu 11 месяцев назад Nikhil Nadasan Firstly you still have all the issues with having an engine for maintenance, servicing costs, reliability. Secondly you are still burning oil. Thirdly it's more costly per mile. What more do you want?
  • Boris de Melo
    Boris de Melo 11 месяцев назад It depends on your situation, really. For most people today, a hybrid or a PHEV makes sense. But if you have a place to charge at home, and your daily commute is within the range of the car, it’s well worth it. For the occasional long journey your options (by increasing cost) are 1. Train 2. A second “road trip” car if you’re a two-car household 3. A Tesla as your EV in the first place (because of their reliable charging network) If the people who can have an EV now do buy one, “the future” comes to the rest of us that much quicker as infrastructure grows to support them.

  • TotalMadnessMan
    TotalMadnessMan 11 месяцев назад Because batteries are heavy, not really effective (yet) and really hard to produce. They take a lot of energy to build. Fuell Cells can be charged with CO2 from the atmophsere.

  • Milind Dixit
    Milind Dixit 11 месяцев назад (изменено) It could work for a lot of people. My daily commute is a 45 mile round trip, and usually my car is on my drive overnight so I could charge it then. But its the other journeys that would annoy me. Like on the weekend to drive 100 miles to someone's house, I wouldn't be able to charge it since I'll be parking on the street. I wouldn't be able to drive home the next morning without stopping somewhere for 45 mins.
  • Clive Sinclair
    Clive Sinclair 11 месяцев назад All those subscription fees - just in case you use their system? Can you imagine paying all the Petrol garages a monthly subscription... just in case you decide to fill up at one? Vehicles powered by electric motors are the future, but batteries and charging systems in the current state and the next 3-5 years... nope. And don’t get me started about charging an EV if you have no off street parking. I offered to pay an estimated £8000 for a charging post outside my block of 8 flats. Council refused planning permission.
  • Boris de Melo
    Boris de Melo 11 месяцев назад (изменено) While I'm not ruling out a Fuel Cell future, I lean more towards a battery-dominant future. With fuel cells, you need to keep producing the hydrogen to fill the cars, and you need energy to produce that fuel, then ship it to various distribution points before reaching the car, which then converts it into electricity to power its EV drivetrain or store that energy in a battery (so you don't completely get rid of batteries anyway). With BEVs, you build the battery once, and use it for 10-20 years before repurposing them for other uses. Whatever electricity you might use to produce the hydrogen, can go straight into the battery so you don't incur as much systemic energy loss between fuel production and usage. There might be use cases for fuel cells in transport, but I don't see it being in small consumer vehicles. Cars spend a lot of time just sitting around, and charging them during that down time while you carry out your routine tasks is a better use of time.
  • Benzinio
    Benzinio 11 месяцев назад In fact small diesel cars are way more eco-friendly then EV! the production of a 100 kW battery cause about 17 000 kg CO2 the production of diesel fuel is averaging of 27 g/km CO2 so if my calculations are correct your diesel car going to reach that 17 000 kg mark after 600 000 kilometres. Then you have CO2 emissions while producing the electricity as well - the electric mix includes relatively low % of "green" energy. EU goal is to reach 30% up to 2030 or about 100 g CO2/km. This is pretty much equal to the CO2 from small diesel 100-120 g/km So when we combine the production of the battery and the electricity the diesel WINS
  • ritar
    ritar 11 месяцев назад Benzinio I need explanations about 1. CO2 which cars emit when they drive and burn fuel 2. CO2 which trucks/ships emit when they carry fuel 3. CO2 which car manufacturers emit when they produce all those mechanical stuff like engines or transmissions
  • Benzinio
    Benzinio 11 месяцев назад ritar 3. The production of the mechanical parts and car bodies are equal for EV and conventional cars about 16 g CO2/km 2. Ships and trucks are not part of the EV "revolution" any way. 1. As I said small diesel emits around 27 g/km for the production and transport of the fuel + about 120 g/km for burning it - therefore 147 g/km combined average. Now lets see EV The producers give 8 years guarantee for the battery pack. lets made it 10. the average annual mileage of a European citizen is 13000 km X 10 years = 130 k - lets made it 200 k therefore 85 g CO2/km for the production of the battery. The average consumption of EV is about 20 kW/100 km I'm familiar with the German energy mix which gives 500 g CO2 for 1 kW therefore 10 kg for 100 km or the combined CO2 is 85 g for the batteries and 100 for the electricity - 185 g CO2 km There is no green effect from EV! And as I said even well developed EU goal is to reach 30% renewable energy after more then decade with no guarantee it actually will... One day, when the scientists solve the problem with the cold fusion EV can make some sense, but not now! Neither in the next 10-20 years!
  • Nikhil Nadasan
    Nikhil Nadasan 11 месяцев назад I totally agree that EVs are the future i just believe that right now its not perfect. Its great for the environment . But they can use a better way. The batterys are processed is such ways that causes so much damage to the environment that makes it pointless. There are better ways are i think hydrogen fuel cell will be the way..emmiting only water which is perfect and the only car compnays who knows this is toyota and honda.
  • ritar
    ritar 11 месяцев назад Benzinio Check out this paper: Somehow this research propose hugely different CO2 amount about battery manufacturing from yours. I'm not expert in this topic so I can't verify either of them, but I think this is worth reading.

    Benzinio 11 месяцев назад I will see it in detail, later, but something that sow in the report is 110 kg CO2 per kW - which is 11 000 kg against "mine" 17 000 which I get from a study of Swedish research... not so far behind as an average... Having in mind the lost in the power grid and still unknown factor as the recycling of the batteries in its best it would be equally to use EV or ICE. And there were a Germans which prove that changing a car with Euro 4 with a new EV is way less eco-friendly as the CO2 footprint for the production and usage of the new car is bigger then the old "dirty" one would have for the rest of its life.
  • Nikhil Nadasan
    Nikhil Nadasan 11 месяцев назад Yes the ways to produce the batteries is harming the environment. So its not exactly eco friendly. Also the batteries do not last forever and from what i hear can be really costly
  • Nikhil Nadasan
    Nikhil Nadasan 11 месяцев назад craigix im from south africa...i assure you that i live in the city centre and theres only 1 near me and within a 60mile radius and its a bmw one which you cannot just use. So yes around you there may be vast amount of these stations but it doesnt apply to the rest of the world.

    Kevin Anderson 11 месяцев назад We hardly have enough electricity as it is if Everyone had an electric car there wouldn't be enough electricity
  • Aaron Lozano
    Aaron Lozano 11 месяцев назад (изменено) Well, while generating hydrogen by electrolysis is now cost effective, is far from being as cheap as running any battery operated car. With a fuel cell you also are tied to traditional fuel stations. I rather develop a faster charging battery network and keep reducing weight + increase range of the actual batteries than depending on fueling stations full time.
  • Nikhil Nadasan
    Nikhil Nadasan 11 месяцев назад Aaron Lozano but a hydrogen fuel cell car is not doing harm to the environment in any possible way. Therefore should be next step for every manufacturer. Sure its going to cost same as fuel but its not doing harm whilst electric cars are doing harm by the way they are created and are still using resources in the form of electricity.
  • Nikhil Nadasan
    Nikhil Nadasan 11 месяцев назад Kevin Anderson yes exactly...therefore everyone should get hydrogen powered cars. It emits water and is not built in a harmful way and its a gas that is good for the environment
  • Nikhil Nadasan
    Nikhil Nadasan 11 месяцев назад Vic Sandhu how about a more sustainable source of energy such as hydrogen. Car manufacturers are pushing EVs and people dont realise how much harm to the enivironment it does. Its extremely harmful whilst developing and hello its still using electricity..isnt there a shortage already .
  • Nikhil Nadasan
    Nikhil Nadasan 11 месяцев назад Vic Sandhu also do you think by buying and electri car youll have no issue at all. What about replacing the can buy another car with that cash.
  • Nikhil Nadasan
    Nikhil Nadasan 11 месяцев назад Boris de Melo its honestly not the future in any way possible. You are still using electricity and harming the environment.

    Nikhil Nadasan 11 месяцев назад TotalMadnessMan take a look at how EVs are actually developed and youll get a shock at how much harm is done to the environment
  • Aaron Lozano
    Aaron Lozano 11 месяцев назад I disagree, more when batteries will soon be created with sodium
  • Levenkay
    Levenkay 11 месяцев назад And your grounds for claiming all this environmental harm is... what? Having heard several other people make the same unsubstantiated claim? The materials an EV is made of are pretty much the same as other cars: steel, glass, rubber, and plastic. The only significant difference is a hundred kilograms or so of cathode paste, which I doubt is all that harmful to produce.
  • sgtc 4
    sgtc 4 11 месяцев назад I've arrived at charging points, and they have all been occupied with unattended cars (sometimes with ICE cars parked at them). Which wasn't good.
  • Nikhil Nadasan
    Nikhil Nadasan 11 месяцев назад Levenkay did you search how they make the batteries before posting. And how much damage the battery does in the long run as well? I suggest you do
  • Nikhil Nadasan
    Nikhil Nadasan 11 месяцев назад Aaron Lozano yes there are better ways
  • Dan Andersen
    Dan Andersen 11 месяцев назад Nikhil Nadasan battery replacement is just under 30% of the price of the new car, including labor and tax. That is considering they give you around €1k for your old battery as credit towards replacement.
  • Nikhil Nadasan
    Nikhil Nadasan 11 месяцев назад Dan Andersen and dont you think thats too much..doesnt that negate the savings from it in the long run . Im not saying its actuate that youl save from a fuel based car rather than an EV. Im jus saying its pointless as cost will definitely be around the same in the long run and so will the emmisions by virtue of battery production as well as use of electricity. We may use charging stations but its still using electricity which is depleting resources maybe at a slower rate but the outcome of both actions will inevitability be the same. Its a different case if each charging station used sustainable energy as well as if we all used it in our home but since thats not the case as for the majority then it just means we going to have the same fate. If they use hydrogen as a fuel source then yes its perfect for the world .it applies the same process and principles of fuel in a clean and sustainable way.
  • Nikhil Nadasan
    Nikhil Nadasan 11 месяцев назад sgtc 4 yes so the difficulty means waiting for one of these stations to free up as well as wait a few hours more or less depending on your range required and then get to go. And pay and register for all of these stations

  • Nikhil Nadasan

  • Tiberiu Marian
    Tiberiu Marian 10 месяцев назад Nikhil Nadasan No they're not. Hydrogen powered cars are the future, a la Hyundai NEXO. Takes way less to fill a tank, fuel source is pretty much unlimited, and it only emits clean water. There are no metals like Lithium involved in making such a car either, so in the end, they're even more eco-friendly.
  • Katzelle3
    Katzelle3 10 месяцев назад 800 kW chargers give you 200 kWh in 15 minutes, which is enough to get a 2 ton vehicle beyond 600 miles.
  • Katzelle3
    Katzelle3 10 месяцев назад Tiberiu Marian Hydrogen cars carry fuel tanks with twice the volume of diesel and gasoline under high pressure just to carry about 100 kWh worth of usable energy. Hydrogen itself is not renewable and the energy expenses to generate new hydrogen are massive. Lithium can be taken from old batteries and recycled. Your Lithium problem is a non-issue. Also, FCEVs are still electric vehicles (because hydrogen combustion engines are stupid and deliver little benefits at great expenses), which means you'll still see batteries inside of them. So why not just put a hydrogen power generator inside the trunk of a better electric car?

This doesnt happen when im behind an electric car or bus.. nore are we breathing in as much brake dust as regen reduces that amount..
  • Wyvern
    Wyvern 6 месяцев назад Unfortunately you get the worst of both worlds, an engine that requires upkeep and a battery that will wear out. Plus I hate when the car has a mind of it's own and starts, stops and revs up the engine all the time. I plan on getting one simply because I have a 70 mile round trip and all I use it for is work.
  • Nikolai Golchev
    Nikolai Golchev 4 месяца назад You are absolutely right. For me, there is no viable reason to buy a Nissan Leaf. The range of this EV is good only for driving around town. Any mortway trip is going to be a nightmare. The manufacturer claims 250 miles on one charge but this is just fantasy. If you put the AC on and plug in to charge your phone, your range will surely drop below 150 miles. This means that you must plan in advance where to charge your car and what is more you have to wait for about an hour to fully charge it. This all seems more like a burden to me.
  • R
    R 2 месяца назад You're in like 10% of people that don't have a place to charge OVERNIGHT,my Bolt gives me a range of 250 miles per charge and never ever drive that many miles a day,as far as traveling goes I would much rather travel in a airplane if I have to travel 1200 miles,why would I wana spend half of my vacation days in travel,and most people do that,having sed that it's only a matter of a few years before we start seeing more and more chargers everywhere,did you know that 100 years ago when the first petrol cars were being sold,theres was no gas stations,it's not being fair to compare 100 years to merely 6 years of existence of Tesla,since they been out in the market

    PhonicUK 11 месяцев назад (изменено) A petrol car would have to get somewhere around the 160mpg mark to match an electric on running costs. In a leaf 1 kWh is about 4 miles, so if you pay 14p/unit for power that's 3.5p/mile. If petrol costs £1.30/litre or £5.91/gallon - to reach 3.5p/mile you'd have to go 168 miles on a single gallon. Combustion engines can't touch EVs for efficiency. Even a 2 tonne Tesla Model S gets 3 miles per kWh.

Also, it's designed to be charged every night (so unlike a petrol car where you go out of your way to fill it up, you wake up with a full charge and only ever need to charge outside the house if your trip is more than 150 miles). For me, thats once a year, and seeing as this process saves over 1000 quid in fuel costs (taking into account electricity) and having no road tax, a single 45 minute stop isn't hard to swallow (plus, Nissan fast chargers are pretty much at every main exit down the motorway from Scotland to England).
