Meetyourneighbours – At a time, motorists, whether two-wheeled or more (three, four and so on), cannot see the view of the tachometer (engine speedometer) on the dashboard. Because their vehicles no longer use internal combustion engine engines that rely on certain engine speeds.
You also do not see the position of the acceleration level in the vehicle gearbox, because a conventional gearbox is no longer needed, and is replaced by a power transmission system to a single gear ratio. There is also no fuel indicator. Instead, give only information about the amount of energy reserves in the battery.
In the future, we will no longer hear the engine roar out of the Muscle car, adding a masculine impression to the drive. In the future, one thing is clear: the exhaust plant will go bankrupt or take over the business.
In the future, the streets will feel much quieter, even when it is crowded, because electric cars are almost quiet. Just the frictional sound of tires and asphalt. At that time there were no more filling stations. Also a petrol salesman by the roadside. There is also no vehicle smoke that sometimes makes you short of breath.
It is clear that electric cars do not differ much from ordinary cars. But there is a very big change when we look at the power source and light baking material (chassis). This means that there are no more engine lumps as in ordinary vehicles.
Instead, there are several electric motors that connect directly to the wheels, either the front wheel (front wheel drive), rear (rear wheel drive), or all (four-wheel drive). Absent gearbox.
As I wrote above, electric cars use a single gear ratio. In this way, the distribution of power from the source (electric motor) is more efficient and effective.
No energy is wasted due to friction between metals in the transmission system commonly found in ordinary cars, which is one of the sources of waste in ordinary vehicles.
Another efficiency is obtained by the absence of an idle system. This means that if the car does not run, the engine will not start either. Energy only goes out when the car is running. In traffic congestion, electricity consumption is greatly reduced. Because the electric motor is off, and (energy) is only used to power the electrical system such as air conditioning, sound and others.
The history of electric cars actually began a long time ago, namely in 1828 (made by Anyos Jedlik) until 1900. Long before the establishment of the first car factory, Daimler-Benz, the electric car project did not continue due to costly considerations. and car’s speed. electricity is not as strict as an internal combustion engine.
Because the technology in the electricity sector is not as sophisticated as it is now, computers used as auxiliary tools cannot help much except because they have not been invented. (The first practical computer was invented in 1942 in the form of a calculator.)
Another thing that made electric vehicles inefficient at that time was the weight of the battery and the heavy bowl. So when we talk about the efficiency of using electric power as a source of driving a vehicle (at the time), it was still inferior to the internal combustion engine which was more powerful and efficient. This is the reason why at that time the internal combustion engine was chosen by people to drive the vehicle.
Along with the development of a sophisticated storage system for electric energy (a lower battery weight and which can store a lot of electricity reserves), which further increases the range of electric vehicles, it has considered the world’s car manufacturers to manufacture electric cars.
At least 1996 saw the emergence of electric cars that were manufactured and sold en masse for the first time. General Motors is trying to offer a vehicle called the EV1. But unfortunately, EV1 production stopped in 1999.
EV1 is only sold in two states in America, namely Arizona and California. With total sales of 2500 units, I personally think the EV1 has a problem charging batteries.
In fact, the GM EV1 is only a handful of the numerous vehicle manufacturers who have tried their luck at manufacturing electric cars. There is also an electric version of the Toyota RAV called RAV4-EV. Honda, Nissan, Chrysler have tried too, and all end up with the same reason: EFFECTIVE is a consideration!
Until 2003, Tesla was founded in Palo Alto, California. Tesla has changed the mindset about inefficient electric cars by launching a high-tech car that can drive more than 300 km with a single battery charge.
Efficiency issues can be solved by making the vehicle body / chassis of lightweight material. Advanced aircraft class technology is also embedded in all Tesla models, namely the automatic pilot system!
In the home country, BMW fully manufactures electric cars, namely the BMW i3. Apart from BMW, Tesla of course also sold a pioneer of electric cars and as a new player in the car market. Not only the two brands, even Smart has also enlivened the Indonesian market for electric cars.
The problem here is the limitation on the price of expensive electric cars, the limited charging stations for public electric vehicles. So far, PLN has built only 21 SPKLUs spread across a number of major cities on the islands of Java and Bali. This is what electric cars only demand in big cities.
Although the electricity of the house can also be charged, the problem is sometimes the problem when we travel outside the city. Though the coverage of a single charge electric motor can be more than 300 kilometers.
The above things still make the existence of electric motors very limited. But over time, when the PKLU (General Electric Vehicle Charging Station) stations spread out, I’m sure electric vehicles will replace cars with internal combustion systems. Will conventional cars with internal combustion systems still exist, or will they just disappear and enter museums?
The answer is simple, as long as several countries in the world still produce oil and make it a commodity as a foreign exchange earner, it will in various ways prevent electric vehicles from rushing to replace conventional vehicles. Where will you sell the oil? Cheers again!
Just like a marriage, there is at least one interest in maintaining their household, even though husband and wife do not love each other. What is clear is that the interest is not about love, but about children (and the economy).
