Electric vehicles: challenges

A list of pioneering countries is introducing electric vehicles on a progressive scale. Motivations range from reducing emissions to saving energy.

There are two important barriers being faced.

One that is more evident for those analyzing the possibility of buying an electric vehicle is its acquisition price, which is still much higher than the traditional one.

Another is the preparation of the necessary infrastructure to supply vehicles. Whether at home - slow charge or faster charge. And, even the charging stations, spread out to ensure the "capillarity" of the supply.

With greater penetration of electric vehicles in the market, they tend to be resolved. Technically it's even easy. But... the most important underlying aspect is: planning.

The countries that are ahead, are planning. The regulatory part, the charging tariff options, the reduction in the purchase price of cargo systems. And, accordingly they will be the ones who will have the primacy, as a result, of dominating the global market.
