Are electric cars the way to go?
Electric cars have been around for decades, but only now are the bigger car companies latching on to the idea of it.
Is this the way to go with vehicles or not? Some argue that if everyone uses them we will drain the power from the whole of Europe and it won't be able to handle it. However it has been proved that if there were 100 million electric cars on the road they would only use 0.67 of the whole of Europe's electricity supply. It's estimated that by 2020 there will be 6 million of these alternatively powered cars on the road in the world, so how many by 2030, 2040 and so on?
Some say that they will never take off as they don't have the same power as cars do now, so will we compromise power for electric cars, or will it always be one of those ideas where you either like it or don't? Maybe in years to come they will have even more power that cars do now as technology is always evolving. When on your driving lessons Manchester (http://www.justdriving.net/
So electric cars are looking pretty good at the moment as they save money and the environment. But how useful are they for everyday life. The new Vauxhall Ampera can travel 25-50 miles on its battery engine alone with a further 310 on a full tank of fuel, some cars that run of gasoline do more miles to the tank, and 25-50 miles just wouldn't do for some travelling far to work.
Are electric cars the way to go? For now I would say no and driving lessons in Manchester will be continued to be taught in petrol and diesel run cars as the electric cars just aren't yet practical enough for everyday use for most. City drivers may gain some benefit from having an electric car but not drivers in general and this question will have to be asked again in the near future when car manufactures explore electric car ideas even further.
