Electric Vehicles (EVs) have been around for a while, but it’s never lost their heat. 

Like many drivers, if you’re thinking about making the switch to an EV, you’re not alone.

There are many factors to consider. If you're still on the fence about whether to stay with a petrol vehicle or switch to an EV, here are five reasons that might help you jumpstart your EV journey; let's dive in. 


1. Save You Money In The Long Run

Once you've chosen to drive an EV, the day-to-day running costs are significantly lower than if you were to go with a petrol or diesel car. It's estimated that charging an EV at home fully will cost just a few bucks, much less than filling a car to cover the same mileage range. 

For instance, the Nissan LEAF’s 40kWh battery home charging costs less than RM 21 for each charge. This is especially true if you charge it at night (like most people do), which has lower electricity rates than daytime. 


2. Let You Have A Lot Of Fun

The goal of electric vehicles has not merely been to match their gasoline and diesel counterparts. Nearly every area has shown improvement.

If you have the budget for it and have the Need For Speed (Yes, we said it.), you could go from 0 to 60mph with a Tesla Model 3 in just 4.4 seconds. 

The fun doesn't stop there, of course, if you don't have the budget for higher-end models. Thanks to instant torque and the smooth, practically silent, super-efficient power of an electric motor, you can still have fun with less expensive options like the Nissan LEAFHyundai KONA Electric e-Max, or the Ora Good Cat.

They’re also fun to look at. From the futuristic exterior designs to high-tech displays, you’ll never get bored driving an EV.


3. It’s More Convenient & Comfortable To Drive

As more charging stations pop up around Malaysia, charging an EV can be done while you’re out and about. Simply plug in and walk away. You can skip the waiting game at the petrol station. How exciting is that?

You won’t need to worry about charging your EV that frequently, either. With more charging stations and facilities popping up around Malaysia, range anxiety can be a thing of the past. On a single charge, you can comfortably drive most EVs for more than 300km-400km. 

An EV also provides a more comfortable driving experience. Compared to petrol-powered cars, the only noise you'll ever hear from an EV is a faint whirring sound. 

In addition, there are no gears to worry about. You just need to hop in, press the ‘Start’ button and go. (Yes, it’s that easy!)  

Did we mention that you can also get yourself a quick massage with Ora Good Cat as your drive? 


4. You’re Saving The Environment!

Having just one EV on the roads can save an average of 1.5 million grams of CO2

CO2 has proven to be a significant contributor to air pollution, one of the main substantial roles in the greenhouse effect.

EVs' emissions performance is set to only improve as wind, and solar power displace coal-fired electricity generation. Even when the electricity used to fuel an EV comes from coal, EVs still produce less global warming pollution than conventional cars. 

By switching to an EV, you can help contribute to cleaner, safer air while lessening our reliance on fossil fuels.


5. There’s No Risk When You Subscribe To An EV With FLUX
