However, it turns out that a fifth of buyers of conventional cars still against electric vehicles and despite the steady growth of their sales. But why?
Well, South Korean brand Hyundai in cooperation with the analysts of the Agency One Poll has compiled a list of the most common misconceptions about electric vehicles and have provided an explanation of each of them, to destroy myths.
The survey involved up to 2,000 drivers who use their cars with petrol, diesel engines and engines that operate on alternative fuel (AFV).
More than half (56 percent) agreed that the government has pushed everyone to transition to AFV by 2040. But the previous Hyundai research revealed that 46 percent of car buyers remain concerned about the concerns of the reserve, which may be now battery electric vehicles.
“It was very important to hear about some of the misconceptions towards electric vehicles,” says Sylvie childs, senior product Manager at Hyundai Motor UK (UK). One of the most frequently asked questions concerns the reserve. When I first came the electric car, we are faced with the problem of the number of kilometers that can overcome such machines on fully charged batteries, but nowadays, this figure has risen to almost 500 km on a single charge, and it will increase over time.”
“But despite these common misconceptions, our study, along with the growth of sales shows that there is a real appetite for cars with low emissions in the UK,” he added. Hyundai has now addressed the top ten issues and myths about electric vehicles:
If you are worried due to the fact that you have nowhere to recharge your car, then you have nothing to worry! Currently more than 9 000 locations in the UK, has more than 14 500 charging points for public use, and this network is growing rapidly”.
Electric cars are significantly cheaper in the Parking around, because their engines don’t need oil, fuel, and there are fewer moving parts that can fail. Many electric cars can reach speeds of 100 km/h in just 7.9 seconds, which is more of the result, which can offer many cars with petrol and diesel engines.
And finally, on the safety of electric vehicles. Be sure that electric cars will undergo the same rigorous tests and meet the same safety standards required for vehicles running on gasoline or diesel fuel.
