Electric vehicles are not simply “electric vehicles”!

This article aims to open a debate about the disruptive role of the electric vehicle and why it cannot be considered just a means of transport powered by electricity.
We are used to using our vehicles to transport us from one place to another, it is a useful and quick way to get around on a daily basis ... private and public vehicles are essential for our mobility.
Said vehicles powered by thermal engines, whether fossil fuels, gas or biofuels have a reservoir with a single function, to store the fuel that will be used for the combustion and transformation of thermal energy into kinetic energy and thereby allow our mobility, obviously not?
However, it is not the same when it comes to electrically powered vehicles. Without going into the physical aspects, we need to consider that, unlike the “fuel tank” whose function is basically to keep the oxidizer that will be used to move the vehicle. In the case of the electric vehicle, its battery bank is a structure for energy storage that it can be used both to move the car and to power other equipment outside the vehicle, simply said the electric vehicle, it is a mobile power plant.
Electric vehicles cannot be considered just another appliance, I argue that it should be considered as a consumer unit, or rather a mobile productor-consumer unit!
In this context, it should be considered by the distributors as a registered Productor-Consumer Unit - UP, as well as residences, and should be operated and monitored as a mobile generator micro-plant by utilities ...
