Electro mobility or e-mobility is one of the hottest topics surrounding the automotive industry. Over the past decade, full electric vehicles and hybrid options have been the center of attention. In a push to help our society go-green, utilizing this technology has become the wave of the future.
Due to various consumer reports, several automotive companies are choosing to invest in this innovation. One of the biggest names turning to the electric and hybrid vehicles is; Porsche. In fact, their newly acquired slogan is; “Direction: Future.” This concept is telling future customers, Porsche is bringing in new ideas, and this one is going to be a journey.
In a world where wars are started due to oil and petroleum, global warming continues to get worse, and the scarcity levels are reaching an all-time high, e-mobility is a feasible alternative. By replacing oil with renewable electricity, overall fuel consumption will dissipate. In addition, electro mobility’s energy consumption is about 1/4 of what a regular unleaded vehicle would use.
How does Electro Mobility Work?
There are several automotive businesses selling vehicles with this type of technology. While Porsche is a popular name for individuals who love sports cars, there are more conservative companies (e.g. Volkswagen) offering similar benefits. By help from a high-voltage lithium-ion battery, a person or family can drive around the city without using any fuel.
Another benefit is zero to very few local emissions from the vehicle will take place. Most importantly, consumers enjoy fuel savings, as well as longer driving distances without spending additional money. However, once the vehicle has exhausted its charge, simply drive it home and plug it in to the vehicle’s charge.
By the time you wake up the next morning, your electrical vehicle is ready to help you reach each destination without additional costs.
How do you know when to Charge the Vehicle
When you look inside an e-mobility vehicle, the charging platform is similar to a fuel gauge. It is set up as a percentage view, and basically when the vehicle is at 25% or less, you need to recharge. There will also be a TFT display that provides a visual of the energy flow, as well as additional information.
Monitoring the Charge
Another benefit most companies offer today involves a smartphone app. For instance, Porsche offers an app that can be used to constantly monitor the charge itself. Some of the viewing capabilities involve:
a. Plug Status
b. Battery (similar to dots when your phone charges)
d. Remaining Charge Time
e. Climate Control Timer
Each one of these areas provides the vehicle’s owner with a better understanding of the process. One of the most common issues associated with electro mobility is not “plugin-in” properly. By taking advantage of this app on your smartphone, it will be easy to catch. This will eliminate leaving your home without a proper charge.
Over the next ten years, you can expect to see e-mobility continue to be tweaked by automotive businesses around the world. Even though this is still considered a ‘new’ option, it’s only because several consumers are still skeptical. By the end of 2030, we believe half of households around the world will own an electrical vehicle. Will you?
