Where’s My Electric Car Bruce?
It’s been over a decade since the first mass-produced electric car hit the market and yet Bruce still hasn’t gotten his hands on one. He’s not alone – there are still only around 1.2 million electric cars on the road globally compared to over a billion gasoline-powered cars. So what’s the hold up?
The main reason is cost. Electric cars are still significantly more expensive than gasoline cars even after you account for the lower running costs. The other big reason is range anxiety – the fear that you’ll run out of charge before you reach your destination.
There are signs that these barriers are starting to crumble though. Costs are coming down as technology improves and manufacturing scales up. And range anxiety is being addressed with better batteries and more charging infrastructure.
In the meantime Bruce can take solace in the fact that he’s doing his bit for the environment by driving a gasoline car. Electric cars may not be perfect but they’re a whole lot better for the planet than the internal combustion engine.
So hang in there Bruce. Your electric car is on its way.
