12: Fire Hazard
There have long been reports of electric cars catching on fire, and it’s always in the back of people’s minds. Because an electric car is completely electric, the risk of fire is a lot higher than your average gas-powered vehicle. Likewise, there are also fears about how an electric car would fare in an accident without catching fire.
These are just some of the things that prevent people from purchasing electric vehicles. Because these cars are still fairly new on the market the worries that accompany them are valid. Consumers should also take the time to check the vehicle’s track record thus far.
