(QA'ed) Jeff Smith Kia -7 Reasons Why You Should Ditch Public Transport for an EV-Perry-July Week 1.jpg

Many view public transport as the most environmentally-friendly way to get around a city. But many people don't know that electric vehicles (EVs) are even more sustainable and can have a much smaller environmental impact than buses and trains. If you're thinking of better ways to reduce your carbon footprint, here are seven reasons you should ditch public transport for an EV.


1)     EVs Cut Your Emissions -

An electronic vehicle can drive around without the guilt of harming the environment. Electric vehicles produce zero emissions, which means they don't release harmful greenhouse gases or pollutants into the air.


2)     EVs Are More Efficient -

Electric vehicles offer better fuel efficiency than public transport because EVs convert a higher proportion of their energy into usable power. However, public transport options often rely on inefficient combustion engines. As a result, EVs use less energy and produce fewer emissions per kilometer traveled.


3)     EVs Cost Less to Run -

Not only are electric vehicles more efficient than public transport options, but they also cost less to run. The cost of charging an EV is often cheaper than the cost of fuelling a traditional combustion engine vehicle. In addition, electric vehicles have lower maintenance costs, as they have far fewer moving parts than internal combustion engine vehicles.


4)     EVs Are More Convenient -

Electric vehicles offer a more convenient travel experience than public transport. With an EV, you never have to worry about missing your bus or train; you can charge your car at home and be on your way. In addition, EVs offer a smoother and quieter ride than public transport options.


5)     Prioritize Safety and Independence with a Personal Vehicle -

No one likes schedules and time limits to bound them. With a personal vehicle, you can choose when to leave and how long your journey should be. This is particularly important for those with families, as public transport can be inflexible and unpredictable. In addition, public transport can be crowded and unsafe, whereas in your car you can relax and feel secure.


6)     EVs Are More Reliable Than Public Transport -

Electric vehicles are far more reliable than public transport options, as they are not subject to traffic congestion or delays due to strikes. In addition, EVs don't produce emissions that can harm the environment or your health.


7)     There Are Different Types of EVs Available -

EV enthusiasts are spoilt for choice, thanks to recent advancements in technology. There is now a wide range of electric vehicles available, from small hatchbacks to large SUVs. This means that there is an EV to suit every need and budget.
