Future used electric car sales will soar, but are we equipped for them at this point?
What will happen to India’s used or pre-owned / used automobile market if electric cars become the norm? – a random quetion occured on my mind while i was working on something and i’m sure some of you reading this might also have thought about this specific thing. To answer this question firstly we need to know what is the present situation of the EV ecosystem in the country and how can people know about this oncoming wave.
Some of the things that seems viable are :-
- To make it easier for buyers of secondhand EVs to charge their vehicles, expand the EV infrastructure.
- Create awareness-raising initiatives to explain the advantages of EVs to buyers of old cars.
- To verify the quality of the vehicle, create a certification procedure for secondhand EV sellers.
- To protect the environment, establish rules for the correct disposal of spent EV batteries.
- Expand the range of financing alternatives available to used EV buyers to lower the cost of the purchase.
- Create a consistent method for estimating the battery life of used electric vehicles.
- To make maintenance easier, expand the supply of used EV parts and service choices.
- Create a system to keep track of a used EV’s history, including prior owners, mileage, and service history.
- Increase the selection of used EV vehicles on the market by working with the automakers.
Does the efficiency of charging in EVs change after 10 years of use, just way it does with phones?
The power source for electric vehicles (EVs) is a battery, and with time, all batteries lose some of their capacity.
However, a number of variables, like the battery’s quality, kind, and use, as well as how the car is operated and maintained, will have an impact on charging efficiency, Generally speaking, the capacity of Li-ion batteries used in EVs starts to decline after 8 to 10 years. Although the pace of deterioration can differ, some batteries might still have more capacity left after ten years of use. Additionally, the majority of EV manufacturers offer a battery guarantee of about 8 years or 100,000 miles.
Overall, after ten years of use, an EV’s charging efficiency might be decreased, although it would happen gradually and rely on how the car is used and cared for. The battery’s lifespan can be increased and the influence on charging efficiency can be reduced with regular maintenance and careful care.
After ten years, what do Indian auto lawmakers believe about the use of batteries in electric cars?
Through initiatives like the National Electric Mobility Mission Plan (NEMMP) and the Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of (Hybrid &) Electric Vehicles (FAME) India plan, the Indian government has worked to encourage the use of electric vehicles (EVs). The Indian government has also set a goal of having 30% of all transportation be electric by 2030.
Overall, it can be claimed that Indian auto law makers are currently more concerned with promoting the use of EVs and creating the infrastructure needed to support them than they are with particularly addressing the problem of battery usage after 10 years.
