Today, we live in a world which strongly believes that electric vehicles (or EVs) are the way of the future. In fact, the International Energy Agency predicts that the number of electric vehicles around the world will grow from three million to a staggering 125 million by the year 2030. And while the global electric vehicle market was only valued at $118,864.5o million back in 2017, it is believed that this number would go up to $567,299.80 million by the year 2025, according to a report from Market Insider. That means it is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of about 22.3 percent from 2018 to 2025.
Indeed, there are several factors propelling this electrical vehicle movement forward in an almost bullish manner. Primarily, today’s car buyers are determined to cut back on their carbon footprint. And so, they set out to find a vehicle that would have as little carbon emission as possible. At the same time, car buyers also believe that going electric also means they get to save a significant amount of money on gas. In addition, car buyers may also be persuaded to opt for electric vehicles since there are a number of incentives that help make the price of each electric car relatively more attractive.
Without a doubt, there are a number of strong reasons that can compel anyone to choose to drive an electric car. However, it must also be noted that electric cars come with their own set of issues and problems. Just to give you a better idea, here are 24 things wrong with electric cars that today’s millennials are simply ignoring.
24. NO MORE LONG ROAD TRIPS
Admit it. One of the best parts about owning a car is that you get to go on some amazing road trips whenever you wish. You can just wake up one morning, pack a bag, and drive off to another state for the weekend. When it comes to electric cars, though, you may have to be a bit cautious about this. In fact, you may not want to take long road trips anymore. That’s because electric cars can only cover a limited mileage on a full charge. And in some destinations, charging stations can be hard to find.
23. COMMON TRAFFIC ISSUES DON’T GET RESOLVED
Sure, there’s something quite appealing about electric cars. Some argue that it makes you a more environmentally responsible citizen of the planet. However, it doesn’t mean that these cars have a solution for all existing traffic issues that motorists around the world are facing today. With or without electric cars in the world, there is still the issue of traffic, which can be truly worrisome for electric cars and their battery life. Moreover, electric cars would not address the issue of car congestion in certain areas. And that means that parking-related problems will also remain, as well.
