As the price of fuel including petrol and diesel is at an all-time high, the attention of people buying new two-wheelers and four-wheelers is turning towards the electric vehicle segment.

This is due to the fact that the sales of electric cars in the country have continued to increase in recent months. Both petrol and diesel cars use an internal combustion engine (ICE -internal combustion engine). Meanwhile, electric cars run partially or fully on electricity using energy stored in batteries. Although there are many challenges in the EV segment compared to fuel cars, buying an electric car is environmentally friendly and saves on fuel costs.

Low running cost: As electric vehicles use electricity to charge the batteries, their monthly running cost is a fraction of the cost of petrol or diesel. For example, if your daily travel distance is 30 km, you will spend Rs.5,375 per month on petrol. Meanwhile, the cost of charging an EV at home with a battery capacity of 30.2 KW and a range of 312 km is only Rs 697. Charging it at a public charging station costs only Rs.392. Electricity rates may vary from state to state. But any way you look at it, the price is less when compared to petrol or diesel.

Low maintenance cost: An electric car is designed to end up costing less for service and maintenance. Because electric cars have less moving parts. So no more new fluids or filters are needed for servicing. One can easily spend Rs 7,000-10,000 per year on petrol or diesel variants compared to EVs.

Environmentally Friendly : The state of environmental degradation like increasing pollution is a matter of concern. Vehicles plying on roads contribute to the increase in air pollution by emitting large amounts of carbon dioxide. It is important to note here that electric vehicles also emit carbon. Yes, indeed the carbon emissions for EVs are not zero. However, EVs emit much less carbon dioxide than petrol and diesel cars.

Better Driving Experience: While gasoline powered vehicles convert 17-21% of energy into vehicle motion, all EV batteries convert 59-62% of energy into vehicle motion. This makes EVs more efficient. Apart from the absence of an exhaust system, EVs offer a quiet and smooth driving experience.

Tax benefits: Buying an electric car also gets tax benefits. A deduction of Rs 1.5 lakh is allowed under Section 80 EEB for interest on loan taken for purchase of EVs from assessment year 2020-21 onwards. This loan should be sanctioned between April 1, 2019 and March 31, 2023. And it is allowed only for individual taxpayers or individuals running a business. . Also, green tax will be levied on personal vehicles after 15 years, while electric and hybrid vehicles will be exempted.
