13: Batteries Will Wear Out
Because electric cars are still fairly new to the mainstream, the timeframe for battery degradation is still a mystery.

While some aspects of the vehicle are more reliable other aspects just bring up questions.
The reliability of a vehicle is one of the most important aspects of the purchase. If you have no idea as to how reliable the car is going to be, you probably won’t make the purchase. Electric vehicles are still a new thing and there hasn’t been much proven about them when it comes to reliability.
