Study highlights significant mental health benefits of driving Electric Vehicles
According to a new brain monitoring study, one of the noteworthy advantages of electric vehicles (EVs) as compared to the gas- or diesel-powered vehicles is that electric vehicles can provide significant mental health benefits to the drivers.
The brain monitoring study was spearheaded by Dr. Duncan Williams, an acoustics expert at the University of York. The study was ordered by London EV Company (LEVC), the manufacturer of the electric black cabs that operate in London.
Highlighting the mental health benefits of driving electric vehicles (EVs), the study has revealed that electrically driven vehicles have a stress-reducing effect on the drivers, due to their quieter driving environment.
As per the findings of the study, drivers of LEVC’s electric black cabs are more focused, less stressed, calmer, and happier in comparison to their counterparts driving the diesel black cabs. The study has specifically revealed that “higher levels of beta brain wave activity were recorded by drivers in the electric vehicle, which indicates higher levels of active concentration.”
The mental health advantage of driving EVs marks a new addition to the numerous benefits which EVs are already known to have over gas- or diesel-powered vehicles. The most commonly known benefits of EVs are zero fuel costs and no tailpipe emissions.
