EVs: Our Energy Expert’s Final Take

In closing, here are a few more thoughts I had while driving the EV car. One thing about the car that was noticeably different for me was the fact that the rearview mirror looks like it magnifies well. The cars in the mirror appear to be closer than they are. It made me think my eyes were playing tricks on me! It took some adjusting, but once I was used to it, it wasn’t a problem.

Two other thoughts:

  • The radio didn’t seem to affect the battery at all.
  • The heating and air conditioning are big energy users, but the car makes up for it elsewhere.
