8 Legit Reasons Why Drivers Are Saying No to Electric Cars

According to data from Kelley Blue Book, 56% of Americans surveyed said they are still not interested in buying and driving an electric car.

But why? What’s so bad about the move to all-electric transportation? Here are eight reasons why.

Range Anxiety

The fear of running out of battery power before reaching a charging station is real in many Americans. 

Public Charging Stations Suck

The Secretary of Energy said it herself, just in different words. The public charging station infrastructure in America still needs to be better.

As technology improves and production is made more efficient, we will surely see these prices drop, but for now, we poor folk will be sticking with gas-powered cars. 

Electric Cars Cost a Lot

There Aren’t Many Electric Car Model Options

In March of 2023, only 40 electric models were available in the U.S. When you consider that 2.8 million cars were sold in 2022, 40 different options are basically nothing.

Home Charging Expenses

You must consider the cost of buying a home charger, which is usually around $1,000. Then, you also have to factor in the cost of professional installation, which is around $500 – $1,300.

EV technology is quickly going out of style as new technology and improvements are made every day. The original Tesla models only had 75-115 miles of range, making the original models as useful as an old iPhone 3.
