For many years, most customers were confused and worried about the reach of an electric car after each charge. This is also their top concern when choosing to buy electric cars, especially those who do not know much about technology.
But in a recent Autolist survey in August, an online car site ranked travel distance and price only accounted for about 40% of the most important factors related to buyers.
Charging time and the popularity of charging stations are also one of the factors that consumers consider when buying.
It can be seen that the distance traveled for each charge is no longer the top criteria that many buyers are interested in, especially the root of high-end electric cars. According to another recent Autolist poll, those who decided to buy electric cars Tesla Model S and Porsche Taycan did not care much about the travel distance. Instead, brand reputation, performance, network of charging stations are crowded and new designs are the things that buyers are most concerned about.
Part of the reason users no longer worry about the distance traveled by electric vehicles, it is due to the increasing battery capacity on electric vehicles. Now many models can move at least 482km / charge.
Currently, the Tesla Model S has a range of 595km / charge while Porsche Taycan will have a range of at least 482km / charge.
Of course the range of electric cars is still something that many people are quite interested in when buying electric cars. About 65% of electric vehicle owners say they used to worry about the range of electric cars, but that worry disappeared after only a few months of use.
For electric vehicle owners, the list price is also the leading factor when deciding to buy a car and accounted for 47% in the 2018 survey conducted by Vovlo on 1.5 thousand US drivers.
Following the development of the electric vehicle industry today, the range of electric vehicles is increasing, it is enough to take you far on long trips. In addition, the price of electric vehicles is also lower to attract customers better. Of course if you want longer range, be prepared to spend more to own a car with a larger battery capacity.
Finally, the number of charging stations is also being invested and expanded. This is an important factor to make electric cars increasingly popular on the street.
