In the beginning, cell phones (and then smartphones) were expensive. Not everyone could afford them. Today, however, a good functional phone can be bought for a reasonable price unless you want the latest model from Apple or Samsung. Same thing will happen with electric cars, and it’s not the only surprising novelty of the car in 10, 20, 30 years.
They will have a lot of advantages compared to those of today.
Yet if you look at the evolution the car has had in the last 30/40 it has mainly concerned aesthetics and vehicle safety (today they added a bit of technology).
The underlying mechanism of the four wheels has remained the same. On an engineering level there have been no major changes.
But everything was disrupted with the car and the first attempts to make it autonomous. The revolution has begun that will make it complete.
PHYSICS WILL HELP SAVE ON BRAKE PADS
The brakes will be replaced by a system of magnets that work with the rotation of the wheels. When the brake is applied, the car’s computer automatically adjusts the strength of the magnets to provide enough resistance to gradually stop the car.
This system has several advantages. First, it is more efficient because it recovers the energy that is normally lost during braking. Secondly, it is more environmentally friendly because the brakes do not generate harmful gases. Thirdly, it reduces maintenance costs because there are no brake pads to replace periodically.
Furthermore, this system would allow the car to stop much faster than traditional brakes, which would be very useful in emergency situations.
So goodbye to the ABS system, for a futuristic system that exploits physics and new technologies
CARS WILL BE CHEAPER
Electric or hybrid cars represent less than 1% of the world’s cars (1.2 billion). Their limited use is due to a number of factors, the most significant of which is their high price: electric vehicles are generally twice as expensive as petrol or diesel models.
Things could change in the future: even without considering any government incentives for their purchase.
Electric cars will cost less than fossil fueled ones in 2027. This is according to research by Bloomberg NEF, a Bloomberg Group company that deals with market research.
But in the future it will not only be the price of the car that will be cheaper, but also the cost of running and maintenance.
Electric cars have far fewer parts than traditional cars, so they are cheaper to maintain and build.
For example, an electric car has no clutch, timing belt, spark plugs, or fuel filter. All components that cost a lot to make the engine.
Also, electric motors are much simpler than internal combustion engines and therefore easier to repair.
Finally, electric cars do not require oil changes, which saves time and money.
Overall, experts predict that manufacturing costs will drop dramatically over the next five to six years, particularly with regard to the cost of lithium-ion batteries, which today have a significant influence on the price of electric vehicles.
In fact, the price of batteries should decrease by a quarter to two fifths. From 2010 to 2019, batteries have already dropped 87 percent in terms of cost, according to Bloomberg.
Between 2020 and 2030, the expected decrease is 58 percent. Well, I would say that’s a lot.
GOODBYE TO TRAFFIC LIGHTS
In the near future, the time spent in the car can be used to socialize, have fun and relax.
With benefits for both society as a whole and for individuals, mobility will play a completely different role in daily life. This is Nikolai Ardey’s vision of the future: Volkswagen Group Innovation Manager
“In 2050 zero emissions, intelligent energy supply, connected mobility and autonomous driving will be widespread and we will move in various ways,” explains Ardey.
According to him the future of transport will be characterized by a mix of micro-mobility, robotaxi, public transport and individual mobility.
Autonomous vehicles will mostly be automated and controlled by artificial intelligence. In the future, thanks to advances in artificial intelligence, cars will be able to park vertically and take up minimal space.
Above all, you will no longer need intersections regulated by flashing traffic lights. So accidents will be minimized.
“The cities – continues Ardey – will become quieter, the parking lots will return to being green spaces and we will regain quality of life. This is the scenario from which we are starting to derive the intermediate phases of the years 2030 and 2040.”
CARS WILL TALK TO EACH OTHER
In the future, cars will communicate with each other and with infrastructure to avoid accidents, optimizing traffic flows and parking.
This technology is known as Car-2-X or Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) communication.
“Car-to-X communication is a key element for automated driving,” explains Ardey.
“The system allows vehicles to exchange data with their surroundings in real time. In this way, they can receive information on weather conditions, construction sites, or dangerous situations on the road ahead.”
This technology will also allow for better management of flows traffic and parking. In fact, it will be possible to know in advance where there are free parking spaces and how to reach them quickly and easily.
In addition, Car-2-X will also be useful for electric cars. It will be possible to know in advance where the charging stations are and how to reach them quickly and easily.
NO MORE FILLING STATIONS
In the future, electric cars will dominate the streets, as a result, gas stations will become a thing of the past.
Electric cars have many advantages over traditional vehicles. They do not emit pollutants, are cheaper to manage and more efficient.
Above all, the main problem of pollution will disappear: traffic.
The United States consumes approximately 380 million gallons of gasoline per day, which is approximately 140 billion gallons per year.
China consumes approximately 130 million gallons of gasoline per day, which is approximately 48 billion gallons per year.
These two countries account for almost 60% of world gasoline consumption.
Electric cars will have a major impact on the environment and people’s health. Plus, they’ll save you money unless you want the top-of-the-line car from the most famous brand … luxury won’t go away.
