The Drawbacks Of Plug In Electric Vehicles

Electric vehicles, or EV’s, are eco-friendly and easy to drive. Until recently, that is about all they had going for them. Early electric vehicles had a very limited range, they were heavy and not very powerful, and their styling wasn’t very attractive. Then, along came companies like Tesla, who changed the way many people looked at electric vehicles. 

This new generation of EV was faster and muck sleeker than earlier electric vehicles. They were also more efficient when it came to energy usage. But, while these new electric vehicles were better in every way, they still have one important drawback that is keeping some drivers away. They all have to be plugged in and recharged frequently.

In fact, there are some other drawbacks of plug-in electric vehicles and we are going to take a look at them now and show you why solar powered vehicles are a better choice for the environment. Let’s get started:

The Drawbacks Of Plug-In Electric Cars

Limited Range- most plug-in electric vehicles have a limited range which is typically anywhere between  80 and 300 miles. For some EV owners, this type of limitation is seen as a major drawback.

Prolonged Recharging Time- for some plug-in electric vehicles, the recharging time can take up to 6 hours. And that’s if you can find a recharging station.

Higher Retail Cost- when compared to fuel-based vehicles of similar size and style, plug-in electric vehicles often cost much more. In fact, when comparing the average electric vehicle to small or mid-size fuel-based vehicle, the cost of an EV may be double.

Fewer Consumer Choices- currently, there are around 40 plug-in electric vehicles options available on the market. That doesn’t leave consumers many options to choose from when shopping for an EV. However, the EV market is moving very rapidly and we will soon be seeing a wide range of electric minivans, sports cars, and SUVs added to the offerings.
