7: High Electric Bill
Upfront, owning an electric vehicle might seem cheaper than paying for gasoline. But when you are charging the vehicle in your home, you are going to pay a higher bill. This is something that scares a lot of potential electric car drivers. Many of whom are already dealing with higher energy costs across the board. Again, electric cars are such a new concept that most people haven’t factored in what it would cost to own one.
Until homes are built to handle these types of vehicles owning one might be a difficult proposition. If you live in a large city, you can park at a public charging station when you are at work. That will eliminate the need to charge at your home for the most part, which is a good thing.
