Cao Qingshan , Managing Director of Guangzhou Qicheng Taxi Company Limited , said , the main advantages offered by electric cars are cheaper operating costs . In contrast to a conventional car , every 5,000 miles required to make the turn component uses " fast moving " like filters , oil , and so forth .
" Because of this electric car , the only practical examinations just do . When estimated, the treatment cost only a quarter of the cost of care is needed for Teana , " said Cao , Guangzhou , Tuesday ( 04/22/2014 ) .
For electricity consumption , power required is much cheaper than petrol . Cao pointed out , using petrol -engined car capacity of 1.6-2.0 liters , 10 liters it took to run 100 miles . Meanwhile , e30 consume 15 kWh of electricity , if converted in price , together with 2 liters of gasoline in China , to run the same distance .
" The price of petrol per liter is 8 yuan ($ 14,800 ) , while the price of electricity per kWh was only 1 yuan ( Rp.1800 ) . So the comparison can already be seen , " Said Cao .
For recharging power ( charging) the battery there are two ways you can do . First with a normal charger ( NC ) and the fast charger ( QC ) . When using the model quickly , it took 30 minutes from empty to fully position with the distance of 100 km . While using the NC takes 7-8 hours from zero to full distance of 120 km .
" We only operate during the day , so at night we recharge the batteries in snooker . Practically charging the NC only takes 5-6 hours , because the car did not come in the condition of the battery is completely flat , " Said Cao .
