17: Inability To Repair
Unless you have an advanced engineering degree, you aren’t going to be working on an electric car. For most consumers, this is a major problem. Having the freedom to work on their vehicles has inspired thousands of people. Not to mention the fact that fixing your owncar is financially sound. But, when it comes to repairing an electric vehicle, you aren’t going to be able to do this in your garage.
Until electric cars can be repaired by the owner, there’s going to be a small portion of the market that turns their nose up. Sadly, based on the kind of technology that goes into these cars, there’s probably never going to be a time to fix them on your own.
