EV Cars: The Difference Between US And EU EV Cars

ev cars  the difference between us and eu ev cars | Newsletter

Have you ever gone to a dealership to see that car model you saw on an EV car advertisement? The chances are you saw a European model. But did you know that EV cars are not treated, nor designed, the same across continents? This EV trend is not passing by.

Some Differences Between US And EU EV Cars

European EV's and American EV’s have many differences that go beyond the aesthetic features. What do you have to think of? Differences in costs, national bias, the general public image, and the government policies.

EV Cars: How Preferences Of EV’s Compare

Tesla is pretty big in the US. Tesla is so popular that it looks like there are no other electric vehicles that could outrank this one. The EU, on the other hand, has a different taste.

Popular EVs in the EU

  • Nissan Leaf
  • BMW i3
  • Renault Zoe
  • Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

For example, the plug-in EV, which performed well in the EU and America, is the Nissan Leaf, but way more popular in Europe. The Nissan Leaf is affordable, practical, drives smoothly, and is highly accessible to consumers. The car has been on the market for more than ten years.

Next is the famous, futuristic-looking German BMW i3. His popularity hits Europe because of its limited appeal. It does not sell well in North American cities.

The Renault Zoe is more common in Europe than in the United States. This is mainly due to its small size in comparison to other EV's. The Renault Zoe is perfect for navigating in small streets, which are very common in European cities.

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is inexpensive and very suitable for both on- and off-road trips. This hybrid car loads fast, up to 80% in only 25 minutes. If it runs only on batteries, people residing in the EU can travel up to 22 miles, perfect for smaller commutes between Europe's cities.

Popular EVs in the US

  • Chevy Volt
  • Chevy Volt (PHEV)
  • Tesla Model X and S
  • Toyota Prius Prime

The only electric car which is not manufactured by Tesla is the Chevy Volt. He is a bit cheaper than the Tesla models and guarantees an approximate EPA coverage of 259 miles with a loaded battery. The Chevy Volt sells better in the US.

Tesla Models X and S are known as long-distance vehicles. Tesla cars are also equipped with the most modern autonomous driver assistance, such as self-parking, automatic lane changer, lane centering, and traffic-conscious cruise control. They can also navigate a highway with limited access, perfect for longer commuting distances in the United States.

Next, we discuss the Chevy Plug-in hybrid (PHEV). This car has a much better power range and a more passenger-friendly interior design. For the American, the Chevy hybrid car has gained a significant customer base in the U.S. because of its price and comfortable seats.

The last one is the Toyota Prius Prime. The hybrid engine's ability to attract and fulfill the daily needs of long-distance commuters makes the car massively appealing to more customers in the U.S. than in Europe.

EV Sales in the United States en Europe

In 2010, the US was mainly the leader in electric cars. But if you travel to Europe, you will see more electric vehicles (EV) on the road than in the US. Europe has caught up and exceeded America. The market for electric cars in the US even seems to be at a standstill because the US did not give consumers incentives to change to electric vehicles. Some countries, like France and the UK, provided generous financial and non-financial incentive deals.

Charging Station Differences For EV's

In the US, the charging stations supply charging cables, while in the EU, the drivers have their own cables with them. However, most charging stations in the US are privately owned. In Europe, a lot of towns and cities provide public charging stations for drivers. Another unsurprising factor about the American charging stations is that they prefer the larger ones. Drivers of electric cars in the EU prefer small stations to save room.

Conclusion Difference Between US And EU EV Cars

There are certainly some differences between American and European EVs, but one thing is clear: the tendency mentioned above does not just pass by; this is one thing that's for sure.
