8 Reasons Why Gas Cars Are Better To Work In Versus Electric Cars!

With this short review, I plan on uncovering my personal top 8 reasons for why driving gas cars for work are much better than driving an electric car (EV) and why every Rideshare driver should be utilizing one. Everyday as professional Rideshare drivers we find ourselves in situations where things could be improved. When I say things could be improved I’m referring to the tools that we use everyday to get our job done such as electronic devices, GPS, and more importantly our vehicles.

The main difference between an electric vehicle and a gasoline powered vehicles lies within the vehicle’s power source and where their power source comes from. A vehicle that operates off of electricity usually has a motor that also operates off of electricity and is powered by a battery that’s rechargeable. You would need to visit one of the many charging stations in your area in order to recharge your vehicle and get back on the road. A gas vehicle that operates using an internal combustion engine is fueled by gasoline, which can be purchased from your local gas station.

My Personal Top 8 Reasons For Why Gas Cars Are Better Than Electric Cars!

Now that we’ve covered what the difference is between a vehicle that operates strictly off of gasoline and a vehicle that operates strictly off of electricity, I would now like to provide you guys with a list of my personal top 8 reasons for why driving with a gasoline powered vehicle is much better than driving with a vehicle that’s powered by electricity. It’s better for a Rideshare driver to use a vehicle powered by gasoline for the following reasons:

1.) Easy To Fully Refuel: Vehicles that operate off of gasoline have a much easier and faster time refueling versus the time it takes for an electric vehicle to rechargeat a charging station.

2.) Available Locations: If you look around, gas stations are everywhere including in places where you wouldn’t even expect them to be. Charging stations on the other hand are not as easy to come by and sometimes must be googled to find!

3.) Versatility: When a Rideshare driver chooses to complete trips using a gasoline powered vehicle, the driver is also choosing to have the flexibility to fill up on gas practicality anywhere without needing to plan for it! But when it comes to an electric vehicle and locating a charging station, locating one may require careful planning prior to actually needing to charge up..

4.) Lots Of Choices: There’s a larger selection and variety of gas powered vehicles available in the market versus electric vehicles, providing more choices to Rideshare drivers that could possibly meet there “on the road” and financial needs.

5.) Appraisal Value: Since vehicles that operate off of gasoline have a larger sales market when it comes to buyers, these gasoline vehicles may sometimes have a higher resale value versus an electric vehicle. Reason being is because gasoline vehicles have been around longer than the recently introduced electric vehicle or EV.

6.) Repair Costs: Electric vehicles tend to cost more money to fix due to the fact that they require specialized services, parts and more importantly a mechanic that knows how electric vehicles operate.
But when a vehicle that operates off of gasoline needs to be repaired, requiring a mechanic with specialized knowledge typically isn’t necessary and the cost of maintenance tends to be a lot cheaper!

7.) Travel Distance: When it comes to working in an electric powered vehicle, a Rideshare driver would always have to worry about running out of power during a ride that may be long distance.

8.) Upfront Expenses: The initial expenses for gasoline powered vehicles are generally more affordable than those for electric vehicles, providing Uber and Lyft drivers with greater financial accessibility.

Do Rideshare Companies Care What Type Of Car They’re Drivers Drive?

The short answer to this question is no! That being said, as long as your vehicle is in good running condition and has a recent inspection certification, Uber, Lyft, Via and Alto could give a damn if your vehicle operates off of gasoline or if your vehicle operates off of electricity (EV)! Keep in mind that there are not the ones picking up and dropping off passengers. You are!

What Are 5 Reasons For Why An Electric Car Could Be Considered Okay To Drive Or Work With?

Now that I’ve discussed and provided you with 8 of my own personal reasons for why gas vehicles are much better to drive and work in than an electric vehicle, I feel as though now would be a good time to discuss why an electric vehicle isn’t so bad either. Allow me to assist you in weighing your options if you were still thinking about picking up passengers using a vehicle powered by electricity:

1.) Lower Operational Expenses: Because of the vehicles efficient electric motor, vehicles that operate strictly off of electricity tend to offer lower operational expenses to it’s drivers. More so because there aren’t as many moving parts in an electric vehicle as it is in a gasoline powered vehicle.

2.) Silent Performance: Since electric vehicles are so quiet, this could actually offer a Rideshare driver and their passenger and more smoother, peaceful driving experience! This could also enhance an Uber driver or passengers focus, especially if they had a lot on their mind.

3.) Benefiting The Environment: If you’re one of those Rideshare drivers who cares about keeping the air and the environment clean, then look no further. Electric-powered vehicles emit significantly fewer gas emissions.

4.) Convenient Charging From Home: Unlike gasoline powered vehicles, electric vehicles can be charged from the comfort of a driver’s home. There’s no need to locate a gas or charging station after ending a long day of driving. How convenient is that? All you would need to do now is purchase your very own charging station, which you can do right here, right now!

5.) Incentives Provided By The Government: When a Rideshare driver decides to complete trips using only an electric vehicle, the Rideshare driver is also choosing to take advantage of certain incentives offered by the government, including having the option of earning tax credits!

My Professional Conclusion:

To conclude this short review, I would like to say that hopefully I’ve made my point when it comes to understanding that gasoline powered vehicles are much better to drive or work in versus an electric vehicle (EV). Particularly if you’re a Rideshare driver and the main reason is because a Rideshare driver wouldn’t have to wait up to 8 hours to get fully charged just hit the road and start driving again. The driver would only have to wait 2 to 3 minutes tops (for a full tank!) which would definitely play a part in the driver’s earnings for that particular day.

Just imagine for a second trying to work an entire 8 to 12 hour shift only to realize that your cars battery power is only enough for six to eight hours of driving. Try to imagine picking up a 2-hour long trip only to realize you only have enough power for 1 hour and 45 minutes or enough power to get you there, but not back. See my point? How can any passenger depend on that? Or maybe the question should be, how can an Uber driver depend on that? Now the only way you would possibly be able to take a little advantage of an electric car, is if you had your very own charging station at home and you work only in locations that are nearby.

Taking this approach could eliminate a driver having to locate random charging stations (which there isn’t many!), giving the driver a more secure way of staying on the road. Taking any other approach when choosing to operate or work in an electric vehicle could go directly against a driver’s game plan to make money! As a matter of fact, anything that causes a driver to stop for longer than 5 minutes could potentially effect a driver’s earnings for that particular day. So please, stay away from electric vehicles (EV’s). Allow this short review be your little reminder!

Now that we’re at the end of another great review, I would love to know how my drivers feel when it comes to driving, working and depending on a gasoline powered vehicle versus an electric vehicle (EV). Do you agree with my personal eight reasons for why driving a gasoline vehicle is more profitable for an Uber driver versus driving an electric vehicle? Do you think that driving an electric vehicle is better than driving in a gasoline vehicle?

Well whether you do or don’t have anything to say or add, I would love for you to express those beautiful thoughts in that beautiful mind of yours?
