EVs: a great opportunity for Brazil

Electric vehicles can become an excellent solution as compared to the current ones.

* Significant emission reduction
* Much lower operating cost

But for this the precondition is planning:

* Preparing the electrical infrastructure
* Offering off-peak tariffs for supply

The big numbers:

* 50 million vehicles to be replaced
* Average use of 50 km/day
* Daily consumption equivalent to 500 GWh/day
* Average daily demand of 20 GW
* 30% of current national electric energy consumption
