The lack of success of reva and the iconic stature of tesla can be attributed as much to the products as to the inherent pain points of an electric car - cost, range and charging. Modern internal combustion engines have been the dominant propulsion method for motor vehicles for almost 100 years, but electric power has remained commonplace in other vehicle types, such as trains and smaller vehicles of all types. Yes, electric engines may be 6 to 9 times more efficient than combustion engines, but combustion fuels are more than 20 times more energy dense, meaning that despite it's low efficiency, combustion engines are still more economical. Tesla tells buyers the final date to order a car before federal tax credits expire bmw recalls charge cords for its electric cars israel plans to stop the sale of cars with internal-combustion.
It will be a very long time before an electric vehicle can go where much of the world goes, especially to the edge cases, which tend to control purchase decisions.
