The “storm” presentation electric cars is in full swing and as the years go by will intensifyat least in European Unionto which it will apply ban on the sale of new models with internal combustion engines from 2035.
However buyer beware for EVs is a foregone conclusion, with concern mainly focused on the sectors of autonomy and chargingtogether with their higher prices relative to corresponding thermal models.
This trend is also “confirmed” by recent survey of the British car finance brokerage Refused Car Financeaccording to which approximately the 2/3 of drivers where they do not have own an electric car, they are not going to make an EV purchase anytime soon.
Specifically, the 61% of drivers expressed his concern about the autonomy of electric cars and even wondered if they would spend more time at charging stations of their battery rather than behind their steering wheel, driving them!
When asked who they think will be the average range of an EV in 202440% of respondents estimated that it would range between 291 km and 386 km. According to the research the average autonomy will be approx 340 kmalthough it is recognized that this depends on the model of each car manufacturer.
The drivers who participated in the survey also expressed their concern about the lack of public charging stations in the UK and consider that the existence of approx 53,000 chargers across the country is not enough.
However, the answers that emerged in the survey by EV owners were completely different. The 66,7% of respondents appeared happy with their electric carto the extent that they see no point in turning to a thermal vehicle on their next purchase.
In their opinion, the main advantages of an EV is the low operating coststhe zero emissions and the better driving experience that offer.
As much electricity as Greece needs in 2024, China will “burn” it just to charge EVs!
