Driving An EV … In China

Here’s a guy who tells the story why he bought an electric vehicle in China and how it works for him. He was a reluctant buyer but government regulations made it an offence to drive a car without local registration at certain times of day and EVs had $free registration compared to the expensive registration of a gas-guzzler. That’s a great role of government to steer people in the right direction. He loves his EV. It’s cheap to drive, performs well, is very quiet and has no fumes.

I expect my up-coming Solo EV to do for me what an EV does for a guy in China, only more efficiently. He reports ~15kWh/100km. Solo gets 160km on 20kWh, 12.5 kWh/100km, according to specs. I think I can do better by driving slower and maintaining a constant speed. It’s all good…
