Electric cars attract us: They are silent, futuristic, respond immediately, gasoline is clouded, global warming is a Reality.

So why are few people buying one? They are expensive, I have no place to plug them in and mainly, lack of autonomy.

The current autonomy of electric cars with lithium Ion batteries (LiFePO4) ranges between 120 and 150 kilometres. It is certainly a limited autonomy, but to what extent is it insufficient?

The reality is that it depends on the use that is going to give to the car. 120 kilometres are enough to move around the city and the periphery, but insufficient to traverse the Province. That is why it is wrong to say that the autonomy of electric cars is insufficient: it will be insufficient only for people who need to do more than 120 kilometres a day.

From the Renobat’s Viewpoint We observe that the panic of autonomy is an unreal Obsession.This panic takes you off driving an electric car. There is a lot of mythology about the need for autonomy, how many times do I need my car to travel more than 100 miles in one day? ”

Buying an electric car involves “changing the chip”: instead of going to a gas station every x days, you have to get used to loading it every night, like a mobile phone.

If you live in a chalet or townhouse, this is not a problem, but if you live in a block of flats, you have to think about installing a refill point in your garage. One of the great prejudices around the electric car is this issue: the plug will cost me money and I will not be able to install without permission from the Community. well, This isn’t exactly the Case. If the garage seat is your property, you don’t even have to ask the neighborhood community for authorization to install the recharge Point. You just have to tell them (in Writing) that you’re going to pull a cable from the accountant room to your Square. The cost of this small facility does not exceed 1,200 euros and, depending on the circumstances or periods, may be subsidized.

however, There are a lot of people who can’t do this simply because the garage is rented or because they leave the car on the street at Night. In this situation they will depend on the public recharge points, which remain FEW.

At the moment, the reality of public recharge points is discouraging. There are few posts in according to which cities and rates can be surprisingly expensive. It all comes down to the same explanation: it is a small market and the companies that install them want to be profitable.

Renobat thinks the recharge points should be on the roads, not downtown. The electric car is designed for each one to charge at home at night, not quickly and running at fast loading points in the middle of the City.

To renobat the solution would be that the manufacturers Implementasen a software in the car where we could put at what time we want it to be loaded and depending on that determine which is the best time to Load. These things are essential because it would give great security to the user in addition to efficiently leveraging the Network.
