Electric cars - general informations

United Nations Organization estimates that in 2050, 75% of the population will be living in the cities. This means that the noise and air pollution will be one of the biggest problems associated with the development of urban areas. Transport is an important factor that affects both noise and air pollution in cities.

The city without the noise of cars. Its hard to imagine, but not impossible. One of the main advantages of electric cars is their quiet operation. The slower, the quieter - the car is almost silent up to 40 km / h. At higher speed, the dominant sources of sounds are the ambient noises and the sound of air flowing along the body of the car. The noise level in the cabin at the speed of 40 to 75 km / h is at the level of 60 to 65 dB, which is two to three times lower than in a car with a combustion engine of equivalent power. Electric cars may change our cities.

Electric cars do not emit fumes; due to the fact that the source of even up to 40% of the air pollution in cities may be the movement of motor vehicles, the issue of limiting emissions is an important factor contributing to the improvement of the air quality in the urban centers. Public opinion surveys show that Poles are aware of the positive influence of an electric car on the environment. As much as 91% of them indicates the reduction of the fumes emission as its greatest advantage.

Nearly three-quarters of Poles traveling by car passes not more than 60 km every day. The real range of the Renault ZOE on a single charge oscillates, depending on the driving style and the weather conditions, from 100 to 150 km. The range of the Renault during the homologation in the normalized cycle exceeded the 200 km (210 km).
