The vehicle boom that overtook Bangalore has left the city vulnerable to pollution and toxic greenhouse gases. But this is not the end. According to a report published by The Indian Express, the number of private vehicles in Bangalore is expected to hit one crore by 2022. Nearly 70% of these are two-wheelers and 20% are cars.
The current air quality index of Bengaluru revealed that the air we breathe is moderately unhealthy (The Better Indian). Improving public transport and walkability remain as the most important measures to curb the rising traffic & pollution in the city. But usage of environment-friendly vehicles is now being recognized as a more feasible option.
As a consumer, you might also save a lot of money on gas. Beyond saving fuel and gas, electric cars have another advantage. Low maintenance. Since such vehicles are fully electrical, you no more have to change oil frequently. It also eliminates the hassles related to the maintenance of your vehicle’s engine.
With more technological advancements coming in, the cost of buying and maintaining an electric car has reduced rapidly. In addition to this, tax incentives have made it a cost-effective alternative to regular vehicles. Moreover, electric motors give a smoother driving experience without causing much noise pollution. Above all this, doing your part to protect the environment is a reason good enough to switch to an electric vehicle, isn’t it?
But does owning an electric car in Bangalore makes sense in the present-day?
Electric charging stations are still at their development stages in Bangalore. You wouldn’t come across a lot of electric fueling stations on a daily basis. This is a matter of concern especially when it comes to long-distance travel. Charging your vehicle at home can have a counter effect on the consumption of power. Bangalore being a city running short of power, buying an electric car might be an unwise investment. But the use of electric cars still boasts of being the single most alternative to reduce your carbon footprint.
