“Electric cars are much safer than their traditional alternatives. Because they have fewer moving parts and do not use flammable fuels, electric vehicles are not so exposed to the safety risks associated with conventional vehicles.” Electric cars are inherently safer than vehicles with internal combustion engines.
Lithium-ion batteries, the power source of all electric vehicles, are flammable and can cause fire due to power cells that can short-circuit if damaged. However, compared to the gasoline used by internal combustion engine vehicles, the fire risk of lithium-ion batteries is much less. To prevent short circuit or external damage, the batteries of electric vehicles are surrounded by a protective cooling material, usually filled with coolant. Also, besides external cooling, lithium-ion battery pack in all electric cars; The large is not assembled as a single piece, but as a series. The purpose of this is to prevent damages that may arise as a result of malfunctions.
Electric cars do not produce emissions. Fuel-burning internal combustion engine vehicles produce dangerous gases such as carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide as a by-product. These gases not only damage the atmosphere but also cause deadly diseases. Electric cars produce no emissions. Unlike internal combustion engine vehicles, which produce dangerous gases such as carbon monoxide as a by-product as they burn fuel, electric vehicles only run on electric batteries. “Zero emissions” means improved air quality and a significant reduction in diseases caused by air pollution.
Fewer moving parts means less maintenance. Traditional tools are prone to degradation. Although both electric vehicles and internal combustion engine vehicles need regular maintenance, the required maintenance frequency for electric vehicles is much less compared to conventional vehicles. Depending on the make and model, electric vehicles with only about 20 moving parts are much easier to maintain than conventional vehicles with 2000 moving parts in the powertrain.
