19. Long Charging Times
Long charging time is another big problem concerning electric cars. To fully charge the batteries, you need to connect your vehicle to a power source. This can often take at least several hours. However, Tesla and Porsche advertise their models with supercharging abilities. That means they can recharge their batteries to nearly 80 percent in just 20 to 30 minutes.
Even though Tesla and Porsche have made significant improvements, charging is still far from the speed to fill a gas tank. Putting the fuel in your car only takes a couple of minutes compared to charging your vehicle overnight. If the industry doesn’t find a solution to this problem soon, it could seriously hurt the electric vehicle market.
