028 – Why are Electric Vehicle Owners disappointed, their Concerns, and their Feedback?


Owners comments and studies till date

In particular, sport utility vehicles, the shapeless blobs behind the steering wheel known as crossovers, have become one of the hottest segments of the automotive business. Ten years ago, about half of all car sales were sedans — the most efficient vehicles on the road — and a quarter was SUVs — the least efficient — vehicles. By 2024, about a third of cars sold will be sedans, and about half will be small and large SUVs.

One in five owners of a plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) stopped using them and start using a gas-powered car because charging batteries in the trunk is painful, researchers found. Around one in five EV owners (70%) do not have access to Level 2 charging at home, and some lack Level 2 connections in the workplace. For example, charging the Chevy Bolt tested took six hours in addition to its 300-mile range, and draining it took about a minute longer than pumping it into a family SUV.

Electric cars don’t charge at the same speed, but larger battery packs mean more time to charge. Early electric cars were lucky enough to travel 100 miles on a full charge, but today’s models can travel up to 400 miles. That seems about right for an electric car, but that range comes at a hefty price.

Consumers who are interested in an electric car but are unsure should research and learn as much as possible about this type of car. Experts recommend motorists visit dealerships to test electric vehicles and ask as many questions as possible with dealers and other owners of electric vehicles. When you buy a used electric car, you will want to find out whether you have access to an electric charger along your typical (or not-so-typical) routes.

Washington, June 18, 2019 – According to a new survey of potential car owners, the electric vehicle market is accelerating and considerations for buying an electric vehicle are consistent across regions and incomes. Understanding consumer sentiment about electric vehicles is crucial to meet OEMs’ needs and further adoption of electric vehicles. It is also important to understand the charging options available at home in order to ensure that consumers can take full advantage of the technology of electric vehicles with the least inconvenience.

The figures mark a marked escalation in purchases of electric cars in America, which accounted for around two percent of all new car sales in 2018.

Many Americans view electric vehicles as unreliability compared to their gas-powered counterparts (35% vs. 15%) while about half the public (49%) see little or no difference between them. A similar proportion (65%) see electric vehicles at a higher price level. A majority of owners /drivers say that a downer is driving a vehicle while electric: 60% say the driving experience is similar to a gas-powered vehicle, 15% describe electric vehicles as more fun to drive and 20% give gas vehicles the fun advantage.

For example, potential car buyers perceive that electric vehicles are more expensive to maintain than gasoline-powered vehicles. They believe that there are fewer mechanics qualified to repair electric cars than there are to repair gasoline-powered vehicles, resulting in inconveniences for owners such as extra distance, time, and maintenance costs. Buyers also think that the acceleration of electric vehicles is inconsistent with that of gasoline-powered vehicles.

According to rational decision-making theory, owners tend to replace their gasoline-powered cars with electric vehicles, because they are expected to deliver more expected benefits than cars over time. But most people who buy an electric car already own one – a decision that one economist calls a “permanent replacement for consumers.”

Electric vehicles are more affordable than you might think considering the money electric vehicles can save in fuel and maintenance costs over the course of their operation and the many thousands of federal and state tax credits available for electric vehicles. In fact, tax credits and electric vehicles cost less than the average transaction price for a new vehicle in the US in February 2020, which was $36,000, according to the ALG industry analysis firm.

Many electric cars have higher entry-level prices than their gasoline counterparts, but that is only because of projected lower fuel consumption standards and the rising cost of future batteries.

Instead of an internal combustion engine, electric vehicles have a battery, a petrol tank, and an electric motor. Charging the battery increases the pollution in the power plant, but the emissions associated with driving electric vehicles are lower than those of gasoline cars because the electricity is generated from renewable sources such as wind. Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs), on the other hand, are a combination of gasoline-electric vehicles because they have both battery and an electric motor but no gasoline tank or internal combustion engine.

Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) and all-electric vehicles (EVs), also known as battery electric vehicles, can be powered by electricity generated by natural gas, coal or nuclear energy, wind power, hydropower, or solar energy in the United States. Hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) consume less fuel than comparable conventional vehicles, and they use electric propulsion technology to increase vehicle efficiency and capture regenerative braking energy lost during braking.

Lack of knowledge and experience with owners has contributed to the slow adoption of electric vehicles, like other emerging technologies, despite Americans’ desire to go green. A separate study earlier this year found that more Americans believe that most cars will be able to drive themselves within the same timeframe – a reality that is likely to come sooner rather than later. Despite the spectacular developments in electric vehicle production, Jackson said the industry is undergoing a transformation that will rely on vehicle types that have coexisted for decades.

The company has a research panel of electric vehicles called PlugSight, which is open to measuring their electric cars. The Electric Vehicle Experience (EVX) Ownership Study today summarizes the attitudes of 10,000 electric car owners for the 2015-2021 model years as part of this research.
