Green technology fails
“Hidden cars”… The wonders of electric cars turn out to be fantasies in the sky.
Large energy losses from generation, transmission, charging and in storage batteries are turning electrical mobility into a cost nightmare.
“E-cars lose large amounts of energy during charging,” reports online 24hamburg-de herecites the results of tests carried out on a variety of electric cars of different prices and sizes by the German automobile association ADAC.
This makes electric cars even more expensive and affordable than previously thought.
The results of the ADAC show that, “the amount of electricity consumed when charging electric cars is significantly higher than indicated on the display screen.”
Manufacturers have forgotten to tell electronic car buyers that a lot of energy – about 10% – is in fact lost during battery charging and storage.
Waste a large amount of energy
“The results were devastating,” report 24hamburg.de.
“With a gasoline-powered car, that would be like emptying a few liters when refueling,” says ADAC.
Clear. Significant energy is lost by all electrical systems, from the charging station, to the vehicle charger and the vehicle battery.
Currently, owners of e-cars are forced to face countless obstacles in their quest to find the level of convenience and comfort that internal combustion engine drivers enjoy. “It is not surprising that a survey by the German automobile association ADAC previously showed that drivers of e-cars are still very dissatisfied with the infrastructure of charging stations,” reports the report. 24hamburg.de.
Large charge loss
All of ADAC’s tested electric vehicles were connected to the same 22 kW wall box at an ambient temperature of 23 degrees, all under the same conditions. According to the test results: “The 100 kWh battery in the Tesla Model X100D actually requires 108.3 kWh. The Kia e-Niro Spirit claims 72.3 kWh for a 64 kWh battery. Even the Jaguar I-PACE EV400 needs at least 10 extra kWh to get a 90 kWh battery,” reports 24hamburg.de.
With electricity prices skyrocketing in Germany, these hidden costs are becoming significant. But the news will soon get a lot worse, 24hamburg.de revealed: “The price of electricity will increase by 320 percent. […] Driving an electric car is and will be more expensive for motorists than previously thought.”
Currently, charging prices in German cities are around 50 euros per kilowatt hour. With a 300% increase, mobility is about to become a luxury only the rich can afford.
Germany has been fooled the most”Energiewende“It is unraveling and becoming a major technological failure.
