Buying a new car is a big decision, and there are an abundance of choices. Among those choices are powertrain, like gasoline, diesel, hybrid, plug-in, hydrogen, or electric. Making the switch to electric can be intimidating, how do you know if an electric car is right for you? In this video we'll cover five aspects of buying an electric car, and discuss for each reason why you may (or may not) want to buy an EV. Those five aspects include: cost, convenience, charging, driving, and the environment.

    The number is only work if you're going to buy a car of comparable cost. If you buy a $15,000 or $20,000 car new it will cost you a lot less than the initial cost of the Tesla.

    I'm sorry, you, like so many others, are completely misinformed. You're calculating pollution from gas cars at the pump. You can't. You have to include, extraction pollution (4.5 to 6 Kwh per gallon from a fossil fuel sources). Then there's transportation pollution, oil spills, wars to protect oil interests. Gas stations have to be open to sell gas and trucks have to deliver gas - more pollution. Then there are all the parts gas cars need. Oil changes, belts, antifreeze, plugs etc. The pollution to make and transport those parts which now means parts stores and transporting those parts to parts stores along with the pollution required to make and keep making those extra parts. People aren't thinking about the environment because they've been taught not to and not understand the massive cost to human health from the fossil fuel industry which, by the way, doesn't change if you buy a hybrid. Everything I just said continues with a hybrid just as it does with a gas only vehicle. Al Gore wasn't wrong when he called it an "inconvenient truth". The cost to you, your family, the food you eat and everyone on the planet's health is directly tied to fossil fuel. I haven't even gotten into the crippling disparity in class generated by a few individuals controlling and profiting from fossil fuel as opposed to the sun which creates wealth diversity, strengthens the grid and boosts economies. We think we are saving a few bucks when we buy a gas or hybrid but we're not, we're just sticking our heads in the sand - exactly where the fossil fuel industry wants them!

    Regarding emissions, I did not see the production and operations of the ‘green’ power generation taken into account (solar cells production, installation and maintenance, extra long transmission lines , wind turbines, batteries etc). Did I miss something ? I am 60yo, and the exact same discussion was ongoing 40 years ago. Despite the huge general technological advance and the taxpayers unwillingly paying for electric cars, nothing really changed, as combustion engines also improved. Without huge government rebates and artificial pro-solar and wind policies, Tesla & others would not exist.

    The discovery of oil peaked in 1964. Why is this old fact important? A. Mankind cannot pump undiscovered oil. Rystad Energy reported that the average annual discovery of oil has declined to 9 billion barrels. Mankind consumes 36 billion barrels so 9 billion is 27 billion barrels short of what's needed to maintain our high energy lifestyle.

    EE mentioned reduced range in the EV is very cold climates. I assume the same would apply in very hot climates coz the AC needs power from somewhere. Also EE maintenance costs but didnt actually mention the cost of a new battery. A new battery will be required at some point, - several points if its a Nissan Leaf. How often does a car need a new engine? Oh, nearly forgot. Try driving across Minnesota, N or S Dakota, Montana and Wyoming in an EV!!!

    Here's a good reason not to buy an EV. A couple in a Porsche took 9 hours because it was an EV to do a journey that a normal car would have done in 2.5 hours. And here's another think if you're in the UK; our energy companies want the government to give them permission to 'turn off' EV's at peak times; which means you're going to have no range. At the moment they aren't worth it.

    But what if an electric car would get a small diesel engine driving a dynamo (20KW?), only for charging the batteries while driving. Looking at small generators, it looks feasible. Instead of the complexity of a big ICE engine in a hybrid, but still having the benefit of instant fueling and no downside of charging infrastructure.

    Old fashioned batteries that are not next-gen "solid state" as promised for 2021 are not going to make electric cars the car of choice for anybody but a green freak. Fact. However I've calculated that potentially a solid-state battery might give the same range as today's ICE gasoline engines...potentially if you assume solid engineering, which is certainly possible. We'll see.

    Don't believe the hype. Batteries used in pure electric vehicles degrade fast. After 8 years you will be looking at a complete and very expensive full battery replacement. This is unavoidable despite that BEV proponents are trying to make everyone ignore this "detail". Now batteries in hybrid vehicles last much longer because they are constanly being charged and also since hybrid batteries are much smaller, replacing the battery is not a very big cost, although still expensive. I would never buy a full electric vehicle, i only consider hybrids. In the long term, fuel cells look more attractive.

    unfortunately this video does not address 2 of my major concerns. 1. how do EV's perform in winter and how to deal with the problems that arise. For example, ICE's will melt the ice, because of engine heat. EV's need to burn thru the battery to prevent ice formation and blocking your vision. 2. repair and maintenance. ppl always assume EV does not require maintenance, which is far from the truth. i can easily repair an ICE car, but can not assume the same for EV's.

  • madmotorcyclist

    I own a 2011 Nissan Leaf (still on original battery) and have spent less than $500 in total for maintenance (incl. a flat tire). I couldn't pass up the $15k rebates from state and feds and the free 240V charger install in my garage. Insurance was cheaper for me since I have mine pro-rated to yearly mileage given my short trip heavy drives the insurance is cheaper. I bought it when they first came out (#712). I figure I will get another 10 years out of it before I need to replace the battery pack (never charge the battery pack to 100% and leave it there for more than two hours, always charge no more than 80%). Show me one gas power car that can match that maintenance cost. Sure it is only a short trip vehicle but considering that over 80% of my driving fits that, it's worth it. For long trips I ride my Harley.

    Agreed. Did he explain what they are? If so I missed it. I thought plug-in and electric are the same. Hybrid I understand might not be "plug-in", because the petrol (or other fuel) engine can charge the batteries, but surely an all electric car needs charging up by plugging it in. He also didn't seem to compare the cost with a non-electric (i.e. traditional fuel) car.

    Hi. I am sorry to say but you are not very familiar with this topic. Having a Tesla and giving us Golf as an example is not enough. The most reliable electric cars on the market are South Korean and Chinese ones. For example MG 5 EV which is a new car on the market (UK) has a range 214 to 276 miles. Rapid charge 50 mins 80%, 3kW home charge 7 hours. Price £24000, 7 years warranty, 0to60 miles 7.3 sec. and fuel equivalent of 146mpg petrol. Kia Niro, Soul ev a even better. Please check the all available EV cars before you give us conclusions. EV is not for everyone at the moment, but this is the future and we must go green to protect our planet. You don't need to agree with me. Regards, Dan

    I really like your EV series. I live in BC Canada and I have chosen to go to an EV. My criteria was: 1. 4 wheel or all wheel drive; 2. Able to tow; 3. 300 km range ( basically Kelowna to Vancouver); 4. Local service. My top three were Rivian truck, Tesla Cyber truce & Volvo XC40 Recharge. Right now Rivian is a US brand so no local service. Even though there are a lot of Tesla’s in Kelowna there is no local service. Service goes to Vancouver. Volvo in Kelowna, where I live, has 3 EV certified tech’s. I currently drive a Volvo XC90, so the Volvo XC40 EV Recharge is right up my ally.

    The only reason I am not buying an electric is because we do not need to replace our car and by the time we do the chances are autonomous transportation will have taken over and I will not need to own a car at all. Our current 10 year old car only has 31,000 miles on it. We bought it a year old as a lease return and have only put 14,000 on it since then. And we travel even less now that the wife is retired the car only moves about 10km a month. Makes no sense to buy a new car. And for how little we drive I'm not worried about our carbon footprint at all. Our little garden offsets more lol

    These types of analysis never take into account the opportunity cost of capital - I.e. what else you would do with your money if not spending it on a car. Personally I invest in stocks, and stocks historically achieve a 10% total return (capital gains plus dividends), so the upfront additional cost of an electric car is a deal breaker from an economic perspective even if future running costs are cheaper.
