For almost 10 years now, electric vehicles have been the talk of the car industry. From the early Tesla models up to today’s Mustang Mach E, electric vehicles tried to show what the future of personal transport looks like. To some, they are appealing since modern electric vehicles introduced zero emissions and high-tech driving interfaces.
However, EV manufacturers have hidden the downsides of those vehicles. The purpose of this list is to reveal to you the 20 things they won’t tell you. Keep reading to discover why electric cars are still far from perfect. Here’s why you should think twice before purchasing one.
Short Range Anxiety
Range anxiety is the number-one factor when it comes to EV downsides. Simply, modern electric vehicles are still range-limited due to their small capacity batteries. Most affordable electric cars on the market have a bit more than a 130-mile-range. However, Teslas and some other expensive vehicles offer double that number.
That is still not comparable to the average gasoline-powered vehicle, not to mention a diesel-powered vehicle. Modern cars can cover 500 or even more miles on a single tank, so electric cars still have a long way to go.
