The fuel car only runs 500km with full fuel, why does the electric car range 500km we are still not satisfied?


At present, China’s new energy vehicles are becoming more and more popular. For example, in 2021, China’s sales of new energy vehicles will break the 3 million mark, and it is expected that by 2025, China’s sales of new energy vehicles are expected to reach more than 5 million.However, compared with China’s huge car sales, the current sales of new energy vehicles is relatively small.For example, in 2021, the sales of passenger cars in China will reach 21.482 million, while the sales of new energy vehicles are only 3.52 million, which is equivalent to the proportion of new energy vehicle sales in the overall sales of cars is only 16.4% or so, which is relatively small.This shows that many people still cannot accept new energy vehicles, and the main reason why we cannot accept new energy vehicles is that the driving range of new energy vehicles is relatively short.Currently, most neVs have a range of only 300 to 600 kilometers, which is likely to decrease further in winter.But the range between 300 and 600 kilometers is relatively good, so let’s take the average range of 500 kilometers, which is about as far as a fuel car can go with a full tank.At present, the fuel tank capacity of most small cars is about 40 to 50 liters. If the average fuel consumption is 8.5 liters per 100 kilometers, then the full fuel can run about 500 kilometers, which is similar to the new energy vehicles with the endurance version.Since the driving range of new energy vehicles is almost the same as that of fuel cars, why are there still a lot of people not satisfied with new energy?In fact, new energy vehicles are “disliked” by everyone, which is not only because of the range problem, but also for deeper reasons, which are mainly reflected in several aspects.First, the real range may be less than the official range. Many car companies in order to sell their cars, they usually claim the maximum range according to the theory, but when the owner buys the car, the actual range may be less than the official range.For example, some models claim that the range is 500 kilometers, but because of natural conditions and air conditioning, road conditions and other factors, the actual range to discount, generally hit 8~9 discount, so the actual range is only between 400~450 kilometers, if the winter may be less.Second, the related supporting facilities of new energy vehicles are not perfect.New energy vehicles mainly rely on charging to provide energy, but at present, China’s new energy vehicles related infrastructure is not very perfect, especially the charging facilities can not keep up.At present, the charging facilities of new energy vehicles are mainly concentrated in some large and medium-sized cities. For some small cities, many places have no charging facilities.Because of this, a lot of car owners are afraid to drive too far. If you drive too far, you get range anxiety. If you run out of power halfway through, you don’t even have a place to recharge your car.For example, during the National Day holiday of 2021, some bold new energy car owners drove their cars on the highway, only to run out of power halfway and have to charge them at the server. However, due to the lack of charging facilities, some cars mainly waited in line for four or five hours.So for those who have long distance travel friends, many people will not consider new energy vehicles, we are more willing to buy fuel cars.Third, low charging efficiency.At present, there are two ways to charge new energy vehicles, one is super fast charging, one is ordinary charging, super fast charging generally takes 1 to 2 hours, but the electricity is more expensive, the peak period once electricity can even reach about two yuan.And super fast charging is not available everywhere, even in first-tier cities like Shenzhen, the number of super fast charging is not very many, people may have to run for several kilometers to find a super fast charging.Another way of charging is ordinary charging, which is relatively cheap. In the trough, it only costs a few cents per kilowatt hour, and it may only cost 20 or 30 yuan to fully charge, which is much cheaper than refueling.But the efficiency of this ordinary charging is very slow, it may take more than ten hours to be full, if we usually do not use the car, this charging efficiency is nothing, but in case we rush to use the car, this charging efficiency is very embarrassing.Especially when people drive their cars to other places to deal with things, if things are urgent, people do not have time to charge, so they can only charge while walking, which is a very troublesome thing.Because of the above reasons, many people are still in a wait-and-see attitude towards new energy vehicles.Although there are corresponding subsidies to buy new energy vehicles, in those cities with limited license plates, new energy vehicles do not need to be lotteries, but do not need to spend money to buy license plates, which is a great advantage.But many people are still reluctant to buy new energy vehicles, even though some new energy vehicles can reach 500 kilometers, many people are still not interested.But no matter we are not satisfied with the full range of new energy vehicles, the future of new energy vehicles will be a general trend, new energy vehicles to replace the traditional fuel vehicles will be an inevitable trend.Because under the influence of global carbon emission targets, many countries around the world have made plans to phase out fuel cars.Although China has not clearly put forward the fuel car elimination schedule, but some provinces have a detailed plan.For example, Hainan province has issued relevant policies, by 2030, hainan province will ban all fuel vehicles, then the market can only sell some new energy vehicles, even if people are not interested in new energy vehicles, they can only buy them.In addition, with the continuous progress of technology, the range and charging efficiency of future new energy vehicles will be further improved, and some charging facilities related to new energy vehicles will also be improved.For example, at present, some institutions have developed a super fast and super fast charging technology, which theoretically only takes 10 minutes to fill. If this technology is popularized in the future, our battery life anxiety will be solved, and new energy vehicles will be recognized by more consumers.
