How To Combat The Problem Of Battery Failure In Electric Cars?
During the last few years, there has been a dynamic shift toward the use of electric cars, especially after the launch of Tata Nexon EV, Hyundai Kona, MG ZS EV, and Tata Tiago, the car buyers are considering buying an electric car. However, still, there is a huge segment which is concerned about its range. Because some factors like the condition of the traffic, impact the performance of an electric car.
If you have to drive an electric car daily from the high-intensity traffic, then obviously it will not deliver the claimed average due to the use of other electric items like the use of an air conditioner, heater or music system. Similarly, if you keep your electric car in a standstill position for a long time, then also there will be a decline in its performance. It is also possible that due to electric failure you cannot charge the battery of your car. Under all these circumstances a question arises, has your electric car become a useless item now?
Well, an answer to this question in a single word is “NO”. As your petrol and diesel cars create problems in the absence of fuel, so with electric cars. You need to be smart and understand the warning signs displayed on the board. Let us now come to our question, what if the battery of your electric car fails? An answer to this question can be given in the following points.
- Don’t try to get your car towed. It is the first thought that hits the mind of every car owner when his car suddenly breaks down due to any reason. Anyhow towing the car will damage the brushes of its motor.
- Try to locate a charging station at the earliest, as soon as you notice it. Like the manufacturers of petrol and diesel cars, the makers of electric cars also develop the car with a feature of displaying the warning signs before its battery crosses the fixed range. Depending upon the make of the car this range varies from 15 to 20 km.
- You can call for the road assistance offered by the car dealer. The team of the road assistance will arrive at the place, depending on the distance. After arriving at the destination, the members of the road assistance team will charge the battery of your car up to the level from where you can easily reach the charging station.
