QOTD: Why haven’t you switched to an electric car yet?
It seems that in the next 5-15 years, most of us will switch from combustion to EV. This is evidenced by the fact that governments around the world introduce laws that do not allow the purchase of gas and diesel vehicles, and there are few combustion options available to automakers.
Based on your reviews and sales of battery vehicles, some of you will be sure to switch to a reduction in current costs and a significantly improved range of the latest EV products. Modern EVs can travel twice as long as their ancestors a decade ago, and this has removed a major hurdle for many buyers.
Scale growth is not the only improvement. New electric cars can be charged faster and faster than the old ones. Now that the technology is being installed in cars that look like conventional cars like the Audi Q4 e-tron, you don’t have to bypass what looks like a billboard for zero-emission technology to take advantage.
But on the other hand, electric cars like the Hyundai Ioniq 5 are one of the most interesting looking family cars on the road. And now you can get power from suburban sedans to luxury limousines, and even pickups like the Rivian R1T, which can tow boats and climb trails, and the reasons for not switching are dwindling.

But we are interested in hearing that you have not yet made this transition. If you are still not ready to give up gas cars, what is holding you back? Do you still think that the distance traveled by most EVs is significantly less than the 500 miles (805 km) offered by diesel and 350 miles (563 km) by a gas-powered vehicle? , not enough for your needs?
Or are you the type of driver who likes the speed of his pitches F1, which means eating candy for 20 minutes that you don’t want or don’t need, even if it has the ability to charge 350 kW. Is there a battery?
Do you live in a place that makes it difficult to charge your EV? Do you like to keep your car for 10 years and worry about battery life? Or is it just a cost? Even in countries such as the United Kingdom and the United States, where the government offers financial incentives to buy electricity, investing in electric vehicles is not cheap, at least in terms of cost.
Whatever the reasons, we want to hear them, so leave a comment and tell us what you need to go through the big break.
