The San Diego International Show, an annual event that brings the latest automobiles, SUVs and trucks as well as alternative fuel vehicles together in one place, concluded on Jan. 2, 2023. After two years of being postponed due to COVID-19, the auto show returned, jam-packed with attendees and thousands of the newest vehicles in a non-selling setup, displaying a wide selection of the latest models that either aren’t released in showrooms or are currently needed by people but difficult to find.
This year, it was impossible to avoid seeing the presence of electric as well as hybrid vehicles, which was a notable improvement over previous editions. While welcoming the new change, attendee Steve Byer, who owns an EV, said it followed naturally that since they owned a solar system in their home, getting an electric vehicle was a natural next step for them, especially given that they’d plug the vehicle into the power and awaken the next day to a full battery.
On the other hand, Guillermo Barajon and his wife were in search of a new all-electric vehicle, claiming that the recent spike in gas prices influenced their switch decision.
Joe Quiroz, another attendee in search of a new vehicle, intends to stay with a conventional gas-fueled vehicle. Quiroz did not appear to be concerned about the rising cost of gas or the forthcoming state regulation requiring all new vehicles, including trucks as well as SUVs being sold throughout California to be electrified by 2035.
Others, such as John Saad, remained neutral and looked for plug-in hybrids, which he claimed was currently the best family choice because the EV charging infrastructure is still being developed across the nation. According to Saad, these vehicles can travel a maximum of 40 miles in range on electricity, after which it must be driven home for another charge at night. On long trips, however, there is no need to drive then wait anxiously at charging facilities because the vehicle has a standard gasoline-powered engine that will carry riders the remaining distance.
Because of the simplicity of having a vehicle charged while at home and the low maintenance costs associated with electric vehicles, Steve Byer, who owns an electric vehicle, declared that he would never switch back to conventional gas vehicles. Despite the numerous benefits of electric vehicles, Byer warns that not all EVs will travel the claimed 100% of the distance on a single charge.
As such annual shows spread awareness about electric vehicles, the sales of all EV manufacturers such as ElectraMeccanica Vehicles Corp. Ltd. (NASDAQ: SOLO) are likely to gradually take off and surge as the years go by.
