Why is it more profitable to produce electric cars than cars with ice?

1. Minimum engine options maximum power configurations
The biggest advantage of electric vehicle manufacturers is the easily variable power inherent in electric motors.

The manufacturer can produce only a few motors, but offer up to 30 different transmission options. In short, “horsepower”, which is not the correct definition for electric motors, can be adjusted, that is, one motor can have several power options.

In turn, the manufacturer of cars with ice, to offer similar variability and be able to compete, must spend money on the development and creation of a much larger number of engines, with each engine will need its own production and Assembly line, while the manufacturer of electric vehicles is satisfied with the simplicity of design and savings on Assembly due to the smaller size of the electric motor.

3 myths you should know about electric cars in the USA

Integrated climate change mitigation requires active action in most sectors, particularly transport, which is the leading source of greenhouse gas emissions in the United States and needs reform.

Fortunately, improvements in technology have led to the development of electric vehicles that produce less than 25% of the greenhouse gas emissions from traditional vehicles, according to a report by the California air resources Council. Continue reading
