Electric cars in Belarus
Back in the early 21st century, electric cars seemed to be the transport of the future. Today they can be found on the roads of all European countries, including Belarus. The article will tell you about the advantages of such transport, the methods and cost of its maintenance.
What are electric cars?
An electric vehicle is a vehicle powered by one or more electric motors. Power to the engines is supplied by batteries or fuel cells.
An electric car has several advantages over conventional cars. These are:
• absence of exhaust gases that negatively affect the ecosystem and human health;
• low cost of operation;
• high efficiency of the electric motor - 90-95;
• reliability and durability;
• the ability to recharge the vehicle from a regular socket;
• low explosion hazard in case of road accidents, etc.
During the existence of a new type of transport, its technical capabilities have grown sufficiently. Thus, today it is possible to purchase an electric vehicle with a fast charging function. This means that in 30 minutes the battery can be recharged to 80% using a dedicated charger.
Another advantage of electric vehicles is the maximum torque that is available from the moment the engine is turned on. For example, the Tesla Model S P85D accelerates to 100 km / h in 3.5 seconds. However, do not forget that in this case the battery power is consumed much faster. Therefore, it is recommended to increase the speed gradually to save energy.
Electric car filling stations in Belarus
Since 2014, a test regime for creating a network of electric filling stations has been introduced in Belarus. For 7 years, owners of electric vehicles have been charging their vehicles absolutely free.
But today charging electric vehicles will cost about 30-40 kopecks per 1 kW / h.
The most popular network of gas stations is Malanka. It works in all regions and on all highways. Today in Belarus there are about 260 EZS. This is enough to service thousands of electric vehicles.

The cost of servicing electric vehicles is gradually approaching zero.
Thus, for four years of Tesla's operation, you can spend about $ 1,200 on its maintenance with a car mileage of 120 thousand km.
When comparing the cost of maintenance with a conventional car, then 120 thousand kilometers is at least 12 oil changes. And each replacement is expensive.
