Electric cars can go through water safely and not cause any harm to the electric vehicle.

Electric cars can be driven in the rain, charged in the rain, etc without any issues although you should never drive through deep water that is flooding just like any other car.

The countries that are banning gas cars include Denmark, Sweden, Iceland, the Netherlands, Slovenia, and Ireland which are planning on banning gas cars by 2030.

You can still drive gas cars and gas vehicles after 2035 in most other places.

Some states are banning the sale of gasoline or gas cars and vehicles after 2035 or sometime after that.

Still though gas cars can and will still be driven even after that time and you can drive gas cars and gas vehicles as long as gasoline is available.

Electric cars will take over mostly by 2035 to 2050.

By 2050 around half of the cars on the road will be electric but not all of them will be.

It will likely take 100 years or so before we see electric cars fully take over.

Although it may not be 100 percent electric cars and electric vehicles unless we run out of gasoline by then.

Gas cars will not go away at last anytime soon.

It may take around 50 years or another 100 years before gasoline or gas cars go away and even then some gas cars and gas cars may still be on the road in those years as well.

That is if there's still enough gasoline supply by then to supply the gas cars and gas cars with.

Electric cars won't fully take over by 2030.

However electric cars will likely become more popular and be in use more than gasoline cars.

Still though gasoline cars and gasoline and diesel vehicles will still be around for many years to come as they are more powerful, more reliable and are better for long distance driving.

As long as gasoline and diesel is available the Internal Combustion vehicles will still be around and not go away for many years to come.

ICE cars also known as Internal Combustion engines will be around forever or at least until we run out of gasoline and diesel to power them.

ICE or Internal Combustion Engines are always gonna be better than the electric cars as they have more power and also can go longer distances between fill ups.

An internal combustion engine (ICE or IC engine) is a heat engine in which the combustion of a fuel occurs with an oxidizer (usually air) in a combustion chamber that is an integral part of the working fluid flow circuit.

The things you should not say to a car salesman are.

“I really love this car” ...
“I don't know that much about cars” ...
“My trade-in is outside” ...
“I don't want to get taken to the cleaners” ...
“My credit isn't that good” ...
“I'm paying cash” ...
“I need to buy a car today” ...
“I need a monthly payment under $350.00”

The best month to buy a new car is May.

Other best months to buy a new car include October, November and December.

In general, the more new cars there are coexisting with old models, the better the savings.

The months of January through April are generally slow-selling ones and have the smallest discounts off MSRP.

In fact, the month with the smallest amount off MSRP is February, with an average discount of about 5.7%.

The best age to buy a used car is when the car is 5 years old or less.

If the car is older than 5 years or older than 10 years then the chances are the mileage will be higher and the depreciation will be higher as well as other problems may arise.

Still if you get the car cheap enough then even a 10 year old or even 20 year old car can be a good car.

I bought a cheap $400.00 car that was 20 years old and drove it for 5 years and it was still going strong but I gave it to a friend who needed a car and so far he's still driving it.

Cars will never be banned as we need cars and vehicles to get around.

However some places may ban the sales of gas cars in the future and only allow sales of electric cars although you can still drive your gas car or diesel car or vehicle even when the sale of gas cars and diesel vehicles are banned.

The pros and cons of owning an electric car include.

Pros of electric cars                               Cons of electric cars
Electric cars are energy efficient              Electric cars can't travel as far
Electric cars reduce emissions                Fueling takes longer
Electric cars require lower maintenance    Electric cars are sometimes more expensive

Electric cars do tend to last longer than gas cars.

The electric car does not have the gasoline motor that can wear out as fast although the electric motor eventually can wear out but as long as the electric motor is not overloaded they tend to last longer than the gas motor.

An electric car will survive for more years and require less maintenance.

But, a gas-powered car will go further on a single fill-up and is easier to replace parts over time.

Electric cars that run off of batteries solely do not need oil changes.

However if the electric gar is a gas engine car and both an electric car then the gas engine would need to have an oil change.

Electric cars do not pay road tax because the electric car is charged using electricity.

However electric car owners do pay taxes through their electric bill and also when they register and tag the electric car the money for the tags and registration of the car and property tax helps pay for road issues that road tax on gasoline would pay for.

Electric cars do eventually pay for themselves.

However it takes around 10 years for an electric car or other electric vehicle to pay for themselves.

You won't see immediate savings when purchasing a new or used electric vehicle and sometimes by the time it's paid for itself it may be ready to retire the electric car and get another one.

However sometimes electric cars may last longer and keep going as long as they are properly maintained.

Electric cars do have air conditioning.

The electric cars air conditioning pump uses electricity through the batteries to power the electric car air conditioning pump.

Unlike a gasoline car that uses the engines power to power the cars air conditioning pump which is driven by a belt and uses more gasoline.

Electric cars do heat up faster than gasoline cars as the heater in an electric car is a resistance heater and immediately throws out heat unlike the gas engine car which uses coolant to heat the car when the engine warms up.

Keeping your vehicle plugged in allows the motor and seats to warm up without sacrificing driving range.

EVs don't cause emissions when idling, so letting your car run for about a minute to two should be enough time for systems to get up and running won't hurt the environment.

If your electric car dies then you'll be stranded on the side of the road or wherever the electric car dies.

Then you'll need to get towed or hook a generator up or plug the electric car in somehow.

Current electric vehicles travel about 250 miles on a charge, though there are some, such as Teslas, that can do about 350 miles on a charge.

Many automakers have announced plans to bring to market electric vehicles that promise longer range and even faster charging.

Electric cars take on average of 8 to 12 hours to fully charge depending on how low the battery is in the electric car.

If the battery in the electric car is only slightly low then it may charge fully in as little as 30 minutes to an hour.

To charge an electric vehicle takes between 8 to 12 hours if the battery is really low.

If you have a fast charger for the electric vehicle then it may take as little as a few hours to 30 minutes depending on how low the battery is.

However from a completely low battery in the electric vehicle it can take around 8 to 12 hours to fully charge the electric vehicle.
