Cost

The cost of an electric car has always been a big talking point because they can be very expensive, however, there are cheaper electric cars that aren’t talked about as much. For example, the Kia e-Niro which start at just $26,000 and the Nissan Leaf from just under $30,000.

The range

For the majority of people, a road trip that is hundreds of miles long only happens twice a year or less. Most people only drive their car a few miles a day so the range isn’t much of a problem. But for those who are concerned about the range here is why I think that there is no reason to be concerned about it.

Charging

Charging has become extremely fast on electric cars, there are now some chargers that can charge at 250kw which is incredibly fast. Home chargers usually charge at around 7kw which might sound slow but it means that they can charge your car overnight.

The Environment

This is one of the biggest things about EVs, they are much better for the environment and considering all the problems we have with global warming, this can only be a good thing.

Conclusion

I think that electric cars are the future and unless you have very little money or you drive hundreds of miles each day, you should get one. They are far better for the environment and they can do much more than a gas-powered car!
