Electric cars are SUPER heavy! Living in Singapore, it's less of an issue for you. But in USA or in Europe, where people drive faster, the significantly higher weight of an electric SUV or electric pick-up truck will mean that normal people in normal cars will be at a huge disadvantage. Take for instance, the Hummer EV in USA. That thing weighs around 11,000 pounds or 5,000 kg when loaded with passengers and cargo! That's HUGE! A typical SUV would weigh around 6000-7000 pounds or around 3000 kg. This sudden and huge increase in weight means drivers of lighter cars that are only just a few years old are at a tremendous disadvantage if they get into an accident with a large EV vehicle on the highway! Weights of cars have gone up about 20% in the past 20 years. A Model Year 2000 Mercedes E Class was probably around 3500 pounds or 1.7 tonnes. Today, a 2020 Mercedes E Class is probably around 4100 pounds or around 1.9 tonnes. That's a gradual change over a long time. The car isn't at a major disadvantage over the useful life of the car. And 20 years is a very long lifespan for a car. Let's say this year you buy a normal weight car, and in two years, electric pick up trucks and SUVs start selling like hot cakes. In just a few years you'll be at a severe disadvantage while your vehicle is still relatively "new." I'd say the car companies are a bit irresponsible for making the Hummer EV THAT heavy. But what can you do? If you can't beat them... Join them... I might buy a bigger car one day just to feel a bit safer!
