16: The Range Isn’t There
For most families, hopping in the car and hitting the road is a fun thing to do. Unfortunately, in an electric car, you are limited to the range that it can go. You have to plan your trip out ahead of time and find charging stations for your car. Many electric car drivers fear not being able to find a charging station and getting stuck somewhere along the trip.
Most electric cars have a range of about 258 miles, but this is not enough for a full-featured cross-country trip. So drivers tend to still go for gasoline-powered cars because you can always find a fueling station.
