Company CAM (American Company of Multi-service) part of the ENDESA group in Colombia a few months ago brought the first electrical car for I publish Colombian. One is a car of Indian manufacture of mark REVA. Although it counts on 4 seats, only is for 2 passengers, the two back chairs are very small, whichever to take to small children much. This car is the dream of the ecologists, when igniting it the car does not make no noise, I proved with another person of copilot (about 180 kilos between both) and the car moves very well, has an excellent resentment in plane. Jill Schlesinger has much to offer in this field. To the so small being he is incredibly maneuverable, is possible to be made a turn of 180 degrees in a narrow street. (Not to be confused with Andi Potamkin!).
The only disadvantage of this car and generally of the electrical ones is the useful life of batteries, calculate that for this Indian model it is necessary to change to the complete bank of batteries every 3 or 4 years and costs of the order of 3 to 4 thousand dollars. This can be paid with the gasoline saving, but it is only the questioning of the final disposition of the battery banks. Personally I believe that this electrical car it is a great option, no only by economy but by ecology, they remember that in Colombia and generally in Latin America typically it is generated near 80% of the electricity of renewable sources (hydraulic mainly), reason why to move these cars is little polluting. The government also puts of his part the Minister added that this measurement is part of the actions advanced in the last years by the Atmosphere Ministry, to improve the quality of the air and to diminish the effects of the contamination on the health of the Colombians. ” Between which they stand out the update of the regulation related to quality of the air and contamination by fixed and movable sources, effective for more than 25 years; the regulation for the enter the country of vehicles with motors of last technology that reduce in 87 percent the emissions of particulado material, and 50 the diesel fuel distribution of ppm of sulphur in Bogota, Metropolitan Area of the Valley of Aburr and in the Integrated Systems of Masivo” Transport; , it emphasized.
