As electric cars are becoming more and more prevalent in the modern-day auto industry, there are still many auto carriers who do not transport electric and hybrid cars. At Direct Connect Auto Transport, we are proud to be able to meet your electric and hybrid car transport needs with our closed or open vehicle transporters.
The Challenges Companies Often Face
Since carriers are used to shipping cars with gasoline engines, there can be many challenges that they can face with electric car engines. Many carriers are slow to adjust to new changes in the auto industry. Direct Connect Auto always keeps up with the latest-and-greatest in the auto industry and are passionate about advances in technology. With that said, below are the potential challenges based on an article from Automotive News that may go along with shipping an electric car:
- Lithium-Ion Batteries add weight
- Some Carriers charge extra
- Lithium-Ion Batteries have potential danger with fires
The added weight from Lithium-Ion batteries, as opposed to regular car batteries, has forced some car transport companies to charge extra for electric car transport services. Extra equipment is not necessary, so the same equipment can be used for both gasoline cars and electric run cars. Electric cars are not free from hazards, and although rare, may pose a potential a fire threat from the use of lithium-Ion batteries.
