Read on to know the most common problems with electric cars that nobody talks about:
Exploitation of environment: The battery is made of precious metals like Lithium which is rarely available. One cannot imagine the environmental issues caused due to mining of Lithium. Even electric cars harm the environment. Many of us think only ordinary cars use fuels, emit carbon and spoil nature. But electric cars are equally responsible for causing harm to nature.
Lack of Recycling Facilities: These cars have a battery with an average lifetime of 20 years. The irony is that they do not have recycling facilities to satisfy customer demand. These facilities are rare and lack the required technology.
Fixing the vehicle: When something goes wrong with an electric car, there are no DYI remedies which you can try. The only solution is to take it to the dealer for setting right. Taking it there every time need not be feasible. In case of an ordinary car, you can just try doing something or take it to a local work shed for setting right. You can upgrade an ordinary car easily using spares from 247spares. But this is not possible in the case of an electric car.
Long travels: In the case of long travels, the ordinary car will endure bad road and withstand the continuous ride. You can carry fuel in large cans. But an electric car needs to be recharged. Hence long continuous drive or participation in rallies is not possible. Imagine what would happen if the car stops in between. You will have to face a helpless situation. The risk of losing charge and the car becoming immobile has to be considered while traveling through forest routes.
Same problems of other vehicles: These cars do not solve all the problems like assumed by many. Like other cars, they too have problems parking, poor roads etc.
