New Delhi. In view of the rising prices of petrol and diesel in the country and the worsening conditions due to air pollution, it is being encouraged to switch to electric vehicles today. This is the reason why the number of electric vehicles for commercial use and public transport is now increasing on the roads. At the same time, people are also turning to two wheelers for personal use like Electric Car, Electric Scooter etc. However, due to all the accidents in vehicles, people also have questions about electric vehicles, whether e-vehicles can cause an accident like electric shock or current.
News 18 Hindi has talked to two different experts about this. CSIR- Senior Principal Scientist and Professor, Central Road Research Institute (CRRI) ACSIR Transportation Planning and Environment Dr. Ravindra Kumar It is said that there is no danger of electric shock or electric shock in the e-vehicle. Components are very less in electric vehicles as compared to other fuel vehicles. Battery operated systems are also kept properly covered. It is circuit based. So there is little risk in this.
Senior Program Lead at Delhi-based Policy Research Institute, Council on Energy, Environment and Water (CEEW) Himani Jain “The electric vehicle is free from danger of electrocution to the driver or passenger and is completely safe for the driver or passengers,” it states. Apart from this, if on the question of Battery Backup or Power Backup Mode, Himani says that it does not have the facility of Power Saving Mode yet but many things are special.
She says that the electric vehicle has the potential of a modern ‘Fuel Economy Mode’. This is exactly the same as in the case of petrol or diesel vehicles. Accordingly, EVs are also operating in energy efficient mode. Energy efficiency is increased in EVs by applying regenerative braking technology (the mechanism of charging the battery in the process of reducing the vehicle’s speed) in certain situations such as braking, acceleration and deceleration, especially in urban conditions.
Eco-driving also works in electric vehicles
Dr. Ravindra Kumar says that when it comes to power or battery saving, eco-driving or green driving is effective in e-vehicles like petrol-diesel vehicles. Just like driving eco in petrol or diesel vehicles, fuel can be saved from 11 to 50 percent, in the same way battery can be saved through this driving method in EV. Apart from this, the special thing is that it increases the range of the battery and it lasts for a long time. At present, a battery normally lasts three to four years, but with eco-driving, its life can be increased by 10 to 15 percent. Driving pattern is very important for any vehicle. It is very important to manage it.
