A new report is showcasing the massive headaches that many electric
vehicle owners are having when it comes to charging their cars.
On Sunday, ABC News published a report in which EV owners detailed the
problems that they have been having when it comes to finding chargers for
Steve Hammes, one of the people featured in the report, leased a Hyundai
Kona Electric SUV for his 17-year-old daughter in the hopes that she would
be able to save money for college by not spending it on gas.
But now they are facing the dilemma of making sure that their daughter can
find available chargers as she drives all the way from Albany, New York,
where she lives, to Gettysburg College in Pennsylvania.
“We’re going through the planning process of how easily Maddie can get
from Albany to Gettysburg and where she can charge the car,” Hammes said.

Indeed, Hammes is not the only one to report this. There have been many
stories of people taking long trips with EVs and having to constantly
think about where they are going to stop to charge their vehicles —
sometimes giving more thought to that than where they will be able to eat.
(It’s worth noting that Telsa makes this easier by integrating charging
stations with its navigation system.)
But that was not the only case of EV trouble that ABC News detailed in the
article. It also told the stories of Car and Driver editor-in-chief Tony
Quiroga and EV owner Sharon Bragg, both of whom said the batteries in
vehicles they were driving — a BMW i7 and a Ford Mustang Mach-E GT,
respectively — depleted faster in colder weather and had to be charged
Again, their stories are backed up by other EV owners. During the winter
storms over the last few months, EVs proved very unreliable in cold
weather, having to be charged more frequently.
Further, the article details that Bragg and Jared Rosenholtz, another EV
owner, have constantly dealt with dead charging cords, cords that can’t
reach the car and long wait times.
Indeed, others drivers have also said that it takes a very long time for
the EVs to charge, and it can be very expensive to charge an EV, sometimes
costing much more than filling up a car with gas.
Once again, we have yet another report about the serious challenges facing
This is not to say that there is no merit to electric vehicles. The
technology is very useful, and it is possible that electric cars could be
the future, but we have a long way to go before that happens.
The Biden administration and other leftists are pushing electric vehicles
as an alternative to gas-powered vehicles in the name of stopping climate
change, and many states are passing laws trying to completely transition
away from gas vehicles.

They seem to be paying no attention to the fact that EV technology is
still in its developmental stage and has a long way to go before it can be
considered a real, viable alternative to gas vehicles.
Furthermore, these cars are often very expensive to purchase and maintain
and are well out of reach for the vast majority of American households in
the current economy.
Electric vehicles may be the future, but they still have a long way to go.
In order for them to be a viable alternative to gas cars, they need to be
efficient, reliable and affordable.
At the moment, they are none of those things, so we will have to wait a
while before we consider EVs the way of the future.
