Electric Vehicle Overview
In the United States and across the world, the vehicle market is trending away from fossil fuels and towards electric-powered vehicles. Every car manufacturer has set goals to stop using internal combustion engines for vehicles by 2030. But what would someone who's in the industry think about this? As a sales manager at Kraft Nissan, I think the trend towards EVs is for the better as electric models are more cost-effective, reliable, and suitable for the task.
For example, you may have noticed that even large trucks are going to be electric in the very near future. I have a lot of truck buyers who are concerned about 4 wheel drive and/or off-road capability in Crawfordville. But imagine for a moment– that instead of a rear differential which has to account for torque to determine wheel spin and traction, now you have a motor at each individual wheel motoring wheel spin and traction. This will be a much more capable of an off-road vehicle and sports cars are no different.
While MSRPs for available models may seem higher currently, we are still at the beginning of this trend. As more and more vehicles move away from fossil fuels, the cost to build the batteries will come down. Similarly, as more and more power sources move toward renewable energy, the overall cost will come down. Also, the cost of ownership of an EV today is less than an internal combustion engine and that gap will continue to widen. In fact, most people report they have stopped spending unnecessary money at circle K because they don't stop there for gas anymore.
