The electric car is the new horizon of world transport, unfortunately these are not available in countries like ours due to several factors mainly economic, currently in colombia the problem of air pollution is something very common so it will be necessary to take certain measures that, besides being costly, are not very effective.
Colombia has never been characterized as a very clean country, however, the current situation is not very favorable especially for the habitants whose health has been compromised due to poor air quality, vehicles in the country have increased in quantity but still they use the polluting fossil fuel that together with the deterioration of the automobiles have been responsible for the creation of a great cloud of smoke and according to the IDEAM to date it has killed some 10,527 people and caused diseases in more than 67 million. The EV alternative would contribute to reducing pollution significantly, since these cars not only do not use gasoline without helping the user save money, since their supply can cost up to a third less than it costs to fill a car with gasoline. gasoline. Unlike an ordinary car, the EV is 90% more efficient compared to the poor 30% of the current car, it can also reach up to 160 km when it is at its maximum load.
In economic matters the country has invested up to 2% of the national GDP for environmental care, but their efforts have been in vain, the amount invested can even be used to promote the acquisition of EVs in the country taking into account that these can reach from $ 21,750 to $ 125,000, an amount that may seem very high but with the help of experts it can be an opportunity to develop the environmental culture in Colombia.
To summarize, the EV is a costly option for now, but in the not too distant future it is likely to be a requirement for transport in the world if we consider the deplorable environmental situation not only in Colombia but also in the world.
