Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “One trend in the market is increased installation of DC fast charging station. Range anxiety is the main concern that is hindering the adoption of EVs. The major difference between EVs and ICE vehicles is the amount of time and effort required to refuel them.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is range anxiety among the end-users. The popularity of EVs has been increasing year-over-year since 2014. The best-selling EVs such as Nissan LEAF and Tesla Model 3 had witnessed significant sales in 2017. However, consumers still have a psychological fear of “range anxiety,” as drivers fear getting stranded due to insufficient charge in the battery said the research firm ResearchAndMarkets in its report.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is high cost of ownership for EVs compared with ICE vehicles. The total cost of ownership of EVs is higher than that for ICE vehicles. This is because of the additional high-capacity batteries used in EVs along with the use of advanced electronic components and design considerations.
The cost of EVs depends on range, hours of use, fuel cost, and government subsidies. One of the best-selling economic EVs, Nissan LEAF, has a 24kWh battery that costs $12,000.
