Truth about electric vehicles
Japan has been researching EV (electric vehicle) technology for the past 20 years, but it is a fact that the electric vehicle was invented before the gasoline-powered vehicle. The electric vehicle did not really gain popularity due to the weak batteries and the recharging system. Now, scientists have found minerals like lithium that can actually move this technology to make a bigger impact on consumers.
As we all know, there are 3 types of vehicles that circulate on our roads.
Gasoline / Diesel Vehicles

Many new developers and companies are taking a bold interest in electric vehicle production, but still, the big bet is on major key players like GM, Honda, Toyota, and Nissan. This monopoly will drive up prices due to lengthy research and expensive batteries. Mitsubishi IMIEV is priced at Japanese yen (JPY) 3,980,000. Under the support of the Government of Japan and the zero emission promotion program, end users have a discount of 1,140,000 yen available to them. This makes a final price of JPY: 2,840,000
The 500Cycle motor that drives the car is at the rear, and the -LEV50 x 88 battery are the main components of IMIEV. It will be fully charged in 14 hours. from an AC100V household outlet. But given that a great time of about 14 hours is still unacceptable to many. Therefore, all manufacturers are focusing on providing fast battery charging solution to users. Even the government. has announced that to provide support it is establishing more than 2,000 fast charging points by 2020. These points will be useful and the user will be able to recharge around 80% of the batteries in just 30 minutes. but still this will be a question because filling a tank from a gas station takes no more than 2 minutes.
In addition to this, if the user drives the car with full light and full air conditioning settings, the battery will not last half the distance on full charge. Therefore, drivers should note that IMIEV will only work for 80Kms. if the air conditioning and lights are used continuously. But this is how normal cars do it and the alternator in the vehicles continues to charge the battery.
Nissan Leaf, another electric vehicle, has set a total retail price of JPY 3,760,000 and after a government. JPY770,000 discount, the final price will be JPY2,990,000. Well as we discussed earlier that until the batteries are loosening prices, these little babies will be expensive. So if you own the vehicle for 7 years, it could be economical compared to today’s gasoline engines.
We believe that there are no instant concerns about the disappearance of gasoline engines from this planet, they have been here for the last 100 years or more and will remain around us for the future.
