Green Cars

With the new innovations being brought upon eco-friendly cars, we question which is better, electric or gasoline? The quick answer everyone falls back to is that electric cars are more expensive, or that they do not cover long distances as well as gas operated engines. The real answer however, is no and no.

First, a Fortune.com article declares that the average cost for maintenance of electric cars is lower than gasoline ones. This is due to the fact that electric cars do not have fuel powered engines, they do not consume a ton of energy output on heating. In addition, they do not need oil. Another aspect is, it’s much cheaper to charge an electric car than it is to refill a gas car. Based on Aol.com it cost 3.65$per gallon for gas and for electric only 1.14$ per gallon. Especially with the ever-rising fuel prices and carbon taxes, electric might be the only way out of this oil taxation. (Rob Carrick)

Another great point is, green cars do not pollute as much as regular ones. Noise pollution will be diminished a lot because their motors do not produce sound. As well, pollution is diminished because fuel cars leak from time to time, oil, and rarely gas. Therefore, electric car cuts out all damages caused by fuel cars.

 

Overall, electric cars will not only save the users from pulling out their wallets, but also people’s sleep in industrialized areas. And after all, who doesn’t want a ninja car that saves money and the environment.

I like the subject of your article because it is common topic that is brought in our conversation these days since electric cars are getting more known. The only thing is that your aspect are very common. Despite the fact that I like the way you used contrariety to defend your point, you could have use other example. In addition, more comparison would have been more attractive. The fact that people can easily see the difference between the two is clearer. For example, it is very good that you compared the price to fill each vehicle, but telling the percentage of how both cars are polluting would have but a more dramatic effect on your article and on the situation.

electric cars are much more expensive then regular car. Generally, a hybrid vehicle can be as much as 20 percent more expensive than its counterpart powered by a conventional gasoline engine. Electric or part-time electric models cost even more to purchase. The cheapest hybrid costs a little less than $20,000, while the most expensive luxury model costs more than $100,000. so some people cant afford to buy a electric or hybrid car. even though its better for the environment its still expensive and not affordable. but it is still a better choice for the future.
