Electric Vehicle Needs!!!
India is in the list of most air-polluted countries in the world. Climate change is one of the biggest challenges looming over society. With ice caps melting at a rapid pace, countries around the world are experiencing a drastic change in their climates, and wildlife is getting affected too. And one of the reasons behind this is industrial activities and vehicular emissions. It becomes very important for India to make a move on this process. In urban areas air indexing quality is very poor. There are many reasons for that. But one of the topmost reasons for air pollution is the emission of harmful gas from combustion vehicles. This causes many types of health issues.
Health Issues due to Air Pollution
A life without health is like a river without water.
Air pollution has become a public health concern all over the world. Combustion vehicles emit large amounts of hazardous gases. Which are harmful to both nature as well as human. There are many hazardous substances that get mixed up with air particles and make air quality unhealthy. It affects our environment as well as harmful to our health.
Following are some gases which are emitted by combustion vehicles :
- Nitrogen oxides
- Carbon monoxides
- Sulfur dioxide.
As a result, these gases produce hazardous pollution which gets mixed in air particles.
Some of the common diseases caused by air pollution are :
- lungs and respiratory problems,
- lung cancer,
- cardiovascular problems,
- liver cancer, and other types of cancer,
- Affect pregnant women and newborns.
Electric Vehicle Evolution
Electric Vehicles are getting popular nowadays, the reason behind this is the vehicular emission of combustion vehicles. It affects our environment harshly. Electric vehicles don’t emit hazardous gases and help to maintain nature.
Therefore, it is mandatory to look after this serious issue. In such times, the push for environment-friendly cars is becoming more important. Vehicular emissions are one of the major reasons behind this process. To get rid of this many big organizations are working on Electric Vehicle technology. In the Indian market, EV is one of the new technology in the automobile industry. Although, there are many automobile manufacturers are ready to launch there EV in India. Some of them are :
- TATA (Nexon EV)
- MG ZS EV
Electric Vehicles emit less harmful gases as compare to fuel vehicles. Although electric cars technology is increasing day by day. Electric Vehicle is charge with conventional power outlets or dedicated charging stations. And often gives a charge that is sufficient for normal usage. Which means that EV’s are smart and compatible enough for daily use.
Problems related to Electric Vehicle
It is one of the major concerns to buy an EV. Electric vehicle’s cost is pretty much higher than petrol, diesel vehicles. And the main reason behind this is the cost of battery which is used in EV. India imports these batteries and this makes a hike in the rate of EV. The battery used in an electric vehicle is a lithium-ion battery which is much costly. So, if the EV market needs to grow then it is compulsory to use a next-gen battery which is cheaper as compared to Lithium-ion batteries.
After the costing issue, the next problem which every EV buyer faces is the charging station infrastructure. Although many organizations are working on the Charging infrastructure in India. But the major issue is space. And also there are fewer charging stations in commercial buildings, parking or residential areas. Until people will be assured that they get charging stations at most places, it is more complicated to increase the sale of EV.
Charging Station Issues :
In India, automobile companies are ready to launch there EVs in the market. But there is a problem in the infrastructure of EV charging stations. The government is also working on the commercial charging station infrastructures. These charging stations are assigned to the shopping malls parking, flats and also have dedicated stations of charging in different places.
There are some organizations which are working on their ways to provide charging solution to Electric Vehicles. They are making charging stations at commercial as well as residential places. They provide different types of AC, DC quick chargers. DC chargers do faster charging as compared to AC chargers. Following is the list of some EV charging providers or working on EV infrastructure in India :
- Delta Electronics India
- ABB India
- Okaya Power Group.
- Electric cars vs Combustion cars.
- Will Electric Vehicle cheaper than Combustion Vehicle in 3-4 years?
- Captivating Evolution In Electric Vehicle Technology.
- What is the Future of Electric Cars in India?
