Two Bit da Vinci Explains Why EV Driving Dynamics Trump Gas

SEP 24 2018 BY STEVEN LOVEDAY 5

We surely wish everyone was aware that EVs are just way better from a driver’s perspective.

Yes, yes, yes … Electric vehicles are touted for being more efficient and for saving the environment, due to a lack of tailpipe emissions. But, all of that aside, what about the experience of driving one? It used to be not so good with early hybrids and electric cars. Sadly, many of the masses are still misled to believe that EVs are like glorified Go-karts! However, nowadays, this just isn’t the case anymore. In fact, most EVs perform way better than their ICE counterparts from any driver’s perspective.

Our good friend Two Bit da Vinci has broken it all down for us. We’ve shared many of their videos before, and their level of knowledge, insight, and detail are unmatched among many a YouTuber in this day and age. As it turns out, EVs are leaps and bounds ahead of ICE cars when it comes to instant torque, acceleration, braking, and handling prowess. There’s really very little not to like regarding the driving dynamics of most of today’s electric vehicles.

The crazy part is that it has taken years of research and much troubleshooting to manufacture ICE cars that accelerate and handle well, and those that fare extraordinarily well are still few and far between (not to mention, usually expensive). Honestly, it’s not an easy task. Contrariwise, even though EVs have just entered the early stages of development and acceptance, the driver-centric traits are just a given.

While electric car production is still somewhat expensive due to the segment’s relative “newness,” performance attributes already come standard. There’s really no need to continually go back to the drawing board to figure out how to “one-up” the competition.

My interest in EVs is ALL down to the driving experience. I grew up driving muscle cars (especially big blocks) and there was nothing quite like the shove in the back you got from a big block in 2nd or 3rd gear in the heart of the torque band. That is until I drove a Model S. Since then I have been an EV fan, and I plan to buy a Taycan (I’m a Porsche fan). The environmental impact is just an additional benefit to me as I won’t be trying to maximize range or efficiency, I’ll just be enjoying driving a fast Porsche again.

Except that raindrops are no shape like that at all. The are spherical or semi-spherical depending on size.

“More dynamic & better to drive” … That goes without saying .. BTW: Fake Grills Suck !

I think there’s a typo. The article says “there is very little to like” about driving EVs. Oh, for want of a “not”.
