Common thoughts when first investigating EV driving

If you’ve never driven in an electric car before or have only just started investigating them, here are a couple of common first thoughts that many people have. Electric vehicles have come a long way and the infrastructure to support them has grown exponentially since they were first introduced to the market. Electric vehicles now offer an easy and safe way to get around town – for less money than you think they do.

Range anxiety

When electric cars were first introduced, many had great fear about how far you could travel on one charge – range anxiety, however, should be a thing of the past. Many newer EV models actually have similar ranges to their traditional combustion engine counterparts. A common misconception of electric cars is that you will constantly need to charge or you won’t be able to find a charger along a long distance route – with proper planning you can get just about anywhere! 


When people first think of electric cars, they think about charging. Rightly so, charging does play one of the most crucial parts of EV driving – but it’s simpler than you think it might be! Many often charge their electric vehicles at home, overnight. Your car will be ready for you first thing in the morning with a full charge. And charging out and about has also gotten simpler – the local charging network in and around Sydney has expanded over the last couple of years. With proper planning, charging your EV is less daunting than you might think.

Type of drive

Driving an electric car is like no other drive you’ve experienced before. EVs offer quiet, smooth and easy driving – there is no rattling or vibration from the engine. This can take a bit of getting used to at first, but once you’ve experienced it then you’re unlikely to go back!


Many often think that electric cars are so much more expensive than traditional combustion engines. This is not the case! Owning an electric car is more expensive upfront due to the cost of the vehicle – however, you will quickly recuperate that from ownership over time! Charging your EV is cheaper than filling up with petrol or diesel, and maintenance costs are far lower than traditional combustion engines.
