    Genuine question about EVs

    Posted by The Dunstable Windsock on 20/2/2024, 11:51:39

    Why is it that I think all electric vehicles or hybrids are automatics? I love a manual but will be looking to go electric next time but concerned I won't like driving an auto as I've driven them before and they're not much fun.

      Thought cars were a means of transport? If you want driving fun best go on track days, that way you'll only likely to kill yourself.

        I think you think that because certainly at least the large majority are . . .

        Some of them accelerate rather faster than most of us would be used to though so not boring in that sense.

          With an EV the full power is immediate, there is no need for gears. If you like the idea of racing through the gears then maybe an EV is not for you. Stick with your ICE for as long as you can, I'm going to and I drive an auto.

            Since getting my car which is an auto, I genuinely believe there's no need for a manual gearbox for the average car.

              But driving an auto takes half the fun out of driving.

                There are very few roads you can have fun on, most of the time is stop start in traffic, which driving an auto makes more bearable

              We have a self changing hybrid and yes it is auto. I asked the dealer the same question at time of purchase and he didn't know why! 🤷‍♂️

                i also have a Hybrid that is auto but also has paddles on the steering wheel to go up or down the gears manually, it is a 7-speed box.

                  Electric vehicles donít have an internal combustion engine.
