Dogs would be fans of electric cars

According to a recent study, dogs would feel more comfortable in electric cars. We explain the why and how!

All dog owners like to go for a walk with their little four-legged friend. And for that, it is obviously important that it feels comfortable and is well installed. So much so that some choose their car according to the needs of their pet, most then opting for a spacious model allowing them to install their furry friend in the trunk, in a secure manner. Because although it is possible to leave it in the passenger compartment, it is important to fasten it properly, to prevent it from moving too much and causes an accident. It is also forbidden to let him stick his head out the window, in order to prevent him from jumping on the road. But did you know that dogs have car preferences?

An attraction for the electric

Indeed, according to a recent study conducted by the CarGurus site, man’s best friend is a real fan of the electric car. But how can we know? To find out for sure, around twenty dogs were transported in various thermal and electric cars on 10-minute journeys over two days. And the least we can say is that the difference was not difficult to detect. Indeed, the animals were much quieter in connected cars than internal combustion ones. Indeed, the latter moved much less and remained longer lying down.

A more serene journey

Professor Mills, in charge of this unusual study, explains that “during their trips in EVs, the dogs’ biometric records revealed that their heart rates slowed significantly more than when they were in diesel cars. This was of particular interest to us, given that an increase in heart rate is usually associated with travel sickness“. You know what you have to do if you have a pet!
