Studies research (couple of questions)

Post by miglt » Fri, 16 Mar 2018, 10:33


I'm a student making research and want to ask some questions. :)

Why would you want to convert (or converted) your car to electric?
-less polution
-performance standpoint
-cheaper to maintain
-cheaper to use
-to stand out
-future perspectives
-other (fill up)

Thank you in advance :)

Yeah I'd go with the "other".
Waiting in line to fill up for an overpriced product that could double in price overnight with a national reserve of 2 weeks.
A converted car is more convenient as there is no queue to plug in at home.

There is not enough choice to make me want to buy a production eV.
Ugly, Boring, overpriced.

For me it's "cheaper to use". Driving electric for ten years.
