But, whether the future come sooner or later, all the experts agree that electric mobility will grow exponentially and leave behind the idea of having the same vehicle for 20 years. "In the end, the important thing is to analyse that today an electric vehicle already gives you an answer to your needs. It’s a change towards the future, it’s not resisting what is on the way. So the sooner we try this, the fewer problems we will have to adapt ourselves."
And although it’s true that in regard to the price of the electric car it’s easy to admit that it is more expensive to buy, "in two years you have amortised this, considering the cost of any other car from the time it leaves the car dealer: maintenance, petrol and going to the workshop", says Arturo from AEDIVE.
Conversely, Noemí Navas, ANFAC spokesperson, defends the fact that "the electric car is advantageous from the economic point of view because connected and autonomous vehicles will manage themselves in a shared way by means of fleets which will optimise their use and lower costs. Moreover, in constant circulation they will not take up space in cities and their optimal management will avoid traffic jams".
So either with a shared autonomous car according to the consumer’s preference a not so distant future awaits us full of innovation and sustainability that will completely change the way we understand life.
Welcome to the future!
