15: Slow Charging Times
Just because you are going to find a charging station doesn’t mean you’ll be done in time. The typical charging time for an electric car is around eight hours. New technology has been advancing the charging time, but that doesn’t cover the thousands of used electric cars on the road. Most common car buyers can’t afford a brand-new electric car, and thus the vast majority of consumers will go used.
Until the charging times and battery technology advance, most consumers will avoid electric cars altogether. For most consumers, we need to go right now, and can’t wait around for the charging to be complete.
