With great change comes great problems
Imagine this, you get up one morning to start your phone up. It roars into life. You wish to you use, but wait - to use it to its fullest potential you need to let it warm up, so you use it for a few minutes gently only to be able to give it the beans after. All while it emits a toxic smell and greases up your hands. Now this isn't how our phones work don't they? They don't have an engine, they have a battery! We pull the plugs off our phones and use it. Period.
Cars deserve this such seamless operation.
Now I know, our phones shouldn't be put to the same regard as our cars. But here's some hard truth, most car users use cars as a mean to bring them from point A to B - the less frills the better. You get up every morning with a full tank. You don't need to do any engine warmups, decide when to visit the next gas station or check which station offers cheaper fuel. Heck you can even heat up your car's interior to a toasty level all without worrying about harmful gases plaguing in your front porch.
And when you do drive off, its whisper quiet so you can listen to your music or your podcasts better. You don't need to raise your voice when you're in the car with your mates. It’s not to say that electric cars are all perfect and all (nothing is really). Yes, range, price and charging times are still an issue even though they have been drastically improving from the EVs of yesteryear. But, if you can make do with those issues, or you’re living in a cbd with a deep pocket and not travel too far, then an EV might start to become a convenience.
And that’s the key takeaway here, EVs will be a convenience.
Not just yet, but it will.
