5 Common Electric Vehicle Myths Debunked

Electric vehicles (“EVs”) are soon taking over as they are also friendly to the environment. However, this may be hampered by several myths that are being propagated around. Some oil producers spread many of these myths and misconceptions due to the fear that they may lose their businesses. Besides, switching to electric vehicles will lead to low oil purchases and a decline in profits. Here are some of the myths and misconceptions that are being peddled around about the electric cars:

Electric vehicles are more expensive than cars using oil

It isn’t true that electric vehicles cost more than cars that use oil. If you consider the durability of these two types of vehicles, you will not buy the narrative that EVs are expensive. These vehicles have fewer moving parts, making their maintenance to be hugely cheaper than oiled cars. You should now erase this myth from your mind and acquire an EV if possible.

Only a few people are purchasing electric vehicles

It is also another venomous stigma about electric cars that you may have heard. The truth of the matter is the reverse. The demand for electric vehicles is higher than the supply. For instance, in the U.S., surveys have indicated that one out of five individuals needs an electric vehicle. The reason as to why you have not purchased one of these cars is because you lack proper information about these cars. In the coming years, several people are going to buy these cars more than fossil-fueled vehicles.

The electric vehicles may run out of power before you reach your destination

You may have heard that the EV’s battery may run out of power before you reach your destination or a charging bay. It is not true as some of these vehicles may go for over 270 km without stopping. The misconception may have made it difficult for you to have one of these vehicles since you fear being stranded in the middle of the jungle. It would be best if you forgot about this myth as it is not valid. Furthermore, lots of charging stations are available to help you in case your battery runs out of power.

There are limited varieties of electric vehicles that you can choose from

This is a broad daylight myth that you may have heard. There are several models of electric cars that you can choose from. Initially, you had only nine models to choose from, but today you have more than fifteen varieties of pure electric vehicles you can choose from.

Electric cars are slow in accelerating

Electric cars are very fast at accelerating, a lot faster than you have ever imagined though misconceptions have been spread that they are slower than petrol or diesel cars. The truth is that electric cars have even more power and accelerate faster than diesel and petrol cars. Some electric cars accelerate from 0-65mph in just 7 seconds.

Don’t fall for the myths above. Now that you are informed and have the facts, you can comfortably purchase one of these cars, and you will never regret it. If you need additional information, EV companies like ElectraMeccanica Vehicles Corp. Ltd. (NASDAQ: SOLO) are available to give you all the latest information about the EV industry.
