Electric cars are the hottest thing in the car industry, and are consuming the plans, resources, and time of just about every automotive manufacturer in the world. So why haven’t they truly taken off yet? The technology exists. They’re good for the environment. And some of the newest models actually look pretty cool. But consumers, so far, have been lukewarm on electric vehicles. In 2015, sales of electric cars accounted for only three per cent of all vehicle sales in the U.S., according to data from the Alternative Fuels Data Center. Even hybrid gas-electric vehicles have never really taken off as predicted, and their sales have faltered in recent years. So why are people choosing to drive traditional gas guzzling, pollution spewing cars when we could all be driving battery powered electric cars? The answers may surprise you.
10. Charging Stations
While car companies have made major strides forward in the development of electric cars, most major cities in the U.S. (and elsewhere) don’t have the infrastructure to support these vehicles yet. By that we mean that there aren’t enough charging stations around where people can boost the rechargeable battery that powers their electric car. While there’s a gas station on just about every corner, charging stations are still few and far between. And this means that electric cars can become stranded if the battery becomes depleted. One of the big hurdles for the auto industry to overcome is installing the infrastructure needed to support all the electric cars that are on the roads and highways now, and all the potential electric cars in the future. After all, an electric car is not much use if there’s nowhere to charge the battery.
