Although electric vehicles (EV’s) are quickly becoming a popular option amongst drivers today; many people still have their worries. This can deter them from making that all-important step. EVs will be the only choice in a few years’ time, so we need to start making those changes sooner rather than later. Drivers in remote locations have their doubts, as connecting to the electric infrastructure is either impossible or too expensive. Luckily, there is a solution, with the use of portable EV charging.
EV range, cost and accessibility are all worries people have. Battery storage chargers that don’t need connecting to the infrastructure can help solve these conundrums once and for all and get people on the road in an EV as efficiently as possible.
Worry #1: The Accessibility of Charging Points
Electric vehicle charging and the accessibility of these charging solutions have been deterring people for a while. There’s a belief that there’s a lack of charging stations across the country. In fact, there are more EV charging points than petrol stations. However, these are only available in places connected to the charging infrastructure, which leaves remote locations at a disadvantage.
With the implementation of mobile charging devices, these destination chargers can be brought to off-the-grid locations in order to boost their economy and tourism. It’s also a way for people to make that switch to an electric vehicle, as it lowers their fears and provides more encouragement.
Worry #2: Cost
It’s no secret that electric vehicles cost more than ICE (internal combustion engine) vehicles. Upfront and through financing or leasing, this is the case, although the need for maintenance is much lower. This is simply due to demand, as more people still opt for a petrol or diesel vehicle rather than an electric one. The worries that surround EVs are one of the main reasons.
By providing more off-grid EV charging stations, the demand is sure to increase, thus lowering the price of EVs altogether. EV drivers have road tax incentives too. So, once the upfront and financing prices decrease, electric vehicles will be the absolute best choice for both personal and business usage.
Worry #3: Range
One of the biggest worries that most drivers have is the range that electric vehicles provide. If you’re looking to travel long distances, the range plus the lack of charging stations in off-grid locations can deter people from buying an EV. Charging at home can only do so much if you’re going a long way, and fast charging isn’t as widely available.
Here at Elite Vehicle Charging, we deploy battery storage chargers to off-grid locations and events across the country. We can help solve this range anxiety by deploying mobile chargers and accommodating EV drivers, especially in remote locations. To inquire further about our EV chargers for rent at your event, please give us a call on 0800 702 2661.
Worry #4: Charging Times
Rapid charging is hard to find; as it’s a high-cost model right now. It’s hard to scale, although this is sure to improve as more technology is implemented and more people drive EVs. By deploying more mobile chargers, we can speed this process up through increasing demand for EVs. Eventually, we’ll get to where we need to be as quickly as possible.
Here at Elite Vehicle Charging, we can help the country make significant strides in its journey to lowering its carbon emissions. By 2030, electric and hybrid vehicles will be the only choice, so why not start making those significant changes today? Make sure to follow us on Facebook to stay up to date with the latest news.
