Range anxiety is treatable.
While I’m not sold on the serious need for electric vehicles, I acknowledge that we’re likely to see more gas-less motor cars swishing through our cities in the coming years.
I see three big problems with EVs:They have an extremely limited range (which varies according to many factors, including temperature, traffic conditions and speed). There is no mass infrastructure to recharge them. The electricity they use still must be produced somehow. (Coal? Nuclear?)
Infrastructure can be built and more nuclear plants can go live to pump more electricity into our failing grid. But there’s not much that can be done to change the fact that batteries in electric cars will empty much faster than they recharge. So how can you deal with the anxiety of not making it home once you venture out in your new electric car? Keep reading, friends.
