Electric Mobility is an EVolution in transportation and it’s happening fast.  There are about 20 million fully electric vehicles in the world today and adoption is growing every day. 

Why? Generation e knows EVs are cleaner, more economical to run and quieter, but they’re also:

  •  

    EVs run on an electric motor powered by a battery. They have 1000 fewer moving parts compared to a gas car. Less to manufacture, fewer parts to service or replace. EV maintenance is only once a year. We call it our annual “check-up”. We have no time or money to waste!

  •  

    Over half of the gasoline in the tank of a conventional car goes up in smoke and heat, it does not propel the vehicle. That’s a waste of money and resources. EVs can go for 120 miles with a gallon of fossil fuels made into electricity, keeping Generation e powered up and on the go!

  •  

    As the world adds more renewables to the energy mix, EVs can charge from the sun, wind, hydro and other sustainable sources for cents per gallon. Now that’s a much better deal!

  •  

    EVs are equipped with the latest innovations in technology. From interactive tablets to voice commands, Bluetooth connectivity to cameras in your rear-view mirror, you may feel like you’re in a spaceship floating through traffic. 

  •  

    The brightest minds in Generation e are developing EV batteries with increasing capacity and efficiency. Most EVs now have a range of 250 – 400 miles on a full charge, and batteries are made to last the life of a vehicle or even longer. What to do with old batteries? They’re being used to store renewable power, and 90% of batteries can be recycled. That’s good news all around!

  •  

    EVs are powerful and responsive, with great torque, pickup and go. Even the most affordable modern EVs can post 0-to-60-mph times that would put a gas-powered muscle car to shame. They are consistently reliable and trouble-free. Fasten your seat belt, it’s truly an electric ride!

  •  

    Talking about seat belts, EVs have them, and all the safety features you have come to expect from a vehicle today: air bags, blind spot monitoring, collision avoidance and advanced driver assistance systems make EVs as safe, if not safer, than conventional cars.

  •  

    Generation e drivers know the biggest secret… EVs are a pleasure to drive, and there are many eye-catching models to choose from to suit any lifestyle. We are NEVER going back to gas!

"I love my EV, my most favourite thing about my ev is never ever having to go to the gas station"

Good for the planet. Reduce between 4-6 metric tons of CO2 emissions per year

Every gasoline-powered car emits an average 4.6 metric tons of harmful carbon dioxide per year into the atmosphere. Burning fossil fuels in transportation is adversely affecting our environment, our climate and our health.

 

Generation e takes action! Driving electric lowers our carbon footprint and has no impact on air quality. No Gas, no fumes, no emissions on the road. And it’s a quiet, smooth ride.

 

It’s empowering, and it feels great to be part of the solution!

Good for the pocket book. Charge at home and save $4 per gallon

The bottom line is, we all want to save money. We have things to do and places to go, and we are not talking about the gas station or the mechanic. Never go there again!

As members of Generation e, we plug-in our EVs at home at our convenience, just like any other appliance, and we save $4 per gallon. The fact is, charging from the BPL grid costs $1.50 in electricity to go the same distance as a gallon of gas at $5.50.


What will you do with all that extra cash?

    REALITY:  Modern EVs are designed with safety features that allow them to handle water exposure similar to conventional vehicles. Here's why:

    • EV batteries and electrical systems are well-sealed and protected against water intrusion. They undergo rigorous testing to ensure they can handle various weather conditions, including driving through water.

    • EVs meet strict safety standards, including those set by organizations like the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), which require thorough testing for water resistance.

    • Many EVs have demonstrated their ability to safely navigate through waterlogged roads and sometimes perform much better than gas cars in flooded areas without any issues.

    • No one has ever died from electrocution driving an EV through water!

  •  

    While it's true that lithium-ion batteries can catch fire under certain conditions, the overall risk is often exaggerated compared to the reality. Here’s a detailed look at this concern and sources for more information:

    REALITY:  The risk of fire in EVs is generally lower than that in gasoline vehicles, and here’s why:

    • Studies and data indicate that EVs are not inherently more prone to fires than internal combustion engine vehicles. In fact, gasoline vehicles experience fires at a higher rate estimated to be 100 times more likely than EV battery fires.

    • EVs are equipped with sophisticated battery management systems (BMS) that monitor and manage the battery's temperature, charge, and overall health, significantly reducing the risk of fire.

    • EV batteries undergo rigorous testing to meet stringent safety standards set by organizations such as the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE).

    • While there have been notable incidents of EV fires, these are rare and often highlighted because of their novelty. In contrast, fires in gasoline vehicles are more common but receive less media attention.

    • In 2021, there were 174,000 highway vehicle fires reported in the United States which caused 650 civilian deaths. This was an increase from the previous year, when 580 civilians died from highway vehicle fires. (Source www.statista.com)

    This is a great article you might be interested in if you are concerned about EV battery fires:

  •  

    REALITY: Modern EVs often have ranges exceeding 200-300 miles on a single charge, with some models reaching over 400 miles. In the Bahamas that means you will probably only charge your EV once a week.

  •  

    REALITY: While charging can take several hours, most charging is done overnight at home, which is convenient for many drivers. Fast chargers can charge an EV to 80% in 30-45 minutes.

  •  

    REALITY: Easy Car Sales provides a home charger with every consumer vehicle which is easy to install at home or at work for a convenient plug-in. There are about 18 public charging stations on New Providence where you can top up on the road, for FREE! (see our map on www.myeasy242.com) and soon we should see the local charging infrastructure expand to faster pay-as-you go options.  Stay tuned!

  •  

    REALITY: The upfront cost of EVs can sometimes be higher, but prices have become very competitive. In The Bahamas Easy Car Sales has vehicles starting at $33,000 plus VAT. EVs are often cheaper over the vehicle's lifetime due to lower fuel and maintenance costs.

  •  

    REALITY: Even when accounting for electricity generation, using cleaner electricity to run an EV is four times more efficient than gasoline in a combustion engine.  EVs typically produce fewer emissions over their lifetime compared to gasoline vehicles. As the grid becomes greener, the environmental benefits of EVs will increase as EVs can run from renewable sources like solar.

  •  

    REALITY: EVs often have instant torque and can be very quick off the line. Many EVs offer a fun and engaging driving experience with smooth acceleration and many advanced tech features.

  •  

    REALITY: EVs undergo the same rigorous safety testing as other vehicles and often receive high safety ratings. They have all the safety features you expect from any vehicle. Their low center of gravity (due to battery placement) can also improve stability.

  •  

    REALITY: Studies suggest that the grid can handle increased EV adoption, especially with smart charging technologies and continued investment in infrastructure. A medium sized EV driven for 14,000 miles per year would use about the same amount of electricity charging their vehicle at home as they would on their electric water heater over the course of a year. Central Air Conditioning units use more power on average per year than an EV.  If we added 5,000 Electric Vehicles in The Bahamas, the power required would amount to an estimated 0.1% of BPL production.

  •  

    REALITY: The number of EV models available is rapidly increasing, with options in various segments including sedans, SUVs, trucks, and luxury vehicles. Today, there is an EV to suit every lifestyle and budget!
