First critics were the capabilities of the Tesla electric truck Semi

A study by Transport and Environment, a consortium of European environmental organizations, compared energy consumption and the environmental impact of conventional diesel trucks and their all-electric counterparts.

Two different diesel trucks were used for the study: one with an average consumption of 33 l/100 km and a more economical one with a consumption of 22 l/100 km.

The study showed that diesel trucks consume 2.2 to 3.3 kWh per kilometer, which is much higher than the average electric truck, which requires 1.44 kWh per kilometer. Electric vehicles designed from the ground up with maximum efficiency in mind, such as Tesla Semi, require only 1.15 kWh per km. the Authors of the study concluded that in General, the use of fully electric trucks reduces energy consumption by 1.5-2.9 times.

Therefore, for the Ukrainian buyer, the alternative is the purchase of electric vehicles with mileage, which from year to year in the models on the secondary market is becoming more and more, especially if the machines were initially involved in commercial areas of use: taxi services, car sharing, passenger transportation.

Everyone knows that the machine with the engine, which worked in such services can not take categorically, because they will literally fall apart. And what about the carts that have the mileage exceeded 150,000 km? Continue reading

Millions of European workers are concerned about their prospects due to the unpopularity of cars with ice, because their production will be reduced, and at the same time will decrease the number of jobs.

Cleaner air and less reliance on fossil fuels are good reasons for the mass adoption of electric vehicles. But for the 3 million Europeans working in the automotive industry, the transition to new technologies is a major concern. Further prospects for cars with ice are being discussed, but the number of jobs is likely to become smaller because electric cars need fewer parts and less maintenance than their fuel-absorbing predecessors.
