The usage pattern of an EV is very different from an ICE.
The EV is typically fully charged overnight when it is parked at home (easier in landed property, tricky in condos) and for normal, urban use, does not need to be topped up during the day.
You never have to visit a petrol station!
For long-distance driving, there has to be some planning and battery management.
The EV should be topped up just enough to get it to the next charging station, not driven until empty (this is the biggest difference in driving behaviour between ICE and EV)
The fast 22kW chargers at the 66 locations along the highway is able to add around 120km of distance per hour of charging, so if the next charging station is around 60km away (not unrealistic given that there are 66) then you spend 30mins at the charger, just nice to stretch your legs, toilet break, maybe even a cup of coffee.
Re: Safety, you can google and see what the risks are. They're pretty safe, otherwise authorities would not let them be sold, amirite?
Petrol cars can also explode and burn down as we have seen numerous times. Depends on the counterfactual.
At highway, from JB to Ipoh around 500 km, petrol car maybe need 5 hours if drive at 100km/h.
with EV meaning that you will need 5 + 5 hours = double the time to get from JB to Ipoh. Not a realistic replacement for petrol car. And how much electrical bill you can bare monthly consider the tariff will be exponential increase with each after certain KW usage. don't be fool by basic tariff for electricity
