It’s evident that electric cars are on the rise, and with increasing consumer demand, sales of EVs and plug-in hybrids are growing rapidly.
But…is range anxiety a deal breaker?
Range anxiety is probably the biggest obstacle in the greater adoption of EVs. This phenomenon has much to do with the availability of charging points, the reliability of charging times and the idea that the range of their EV is insufficient to reach their destination.
The manufacturer’s claimed range can vary, depending on multiple factors such as driving habits, traffic and weather conditions.
It’s also important to remember that you probably won’t travel more than 200 electric miles in one journey. So, you’d have the opportunity to charge while you were stopped for a break.
To show you the capabilities of five electric vehicles, we’ve planned a few potential journeys you could make from Exeter, Devon – the home of Carparison HQ - on one full charge, according to the manufacturer’s claimed electric range.
