I like the definition of "cheap"
I just had a quick look at the list of cars available in 2020 in the UK. only a couple were as low as£25,000 most of them were substantially more expensive.
If I compare an electric car with the equivelant petrol car the difference seems to be AT LEAST £10,000!
That is a LOT of additional money to find. And the cost of second hand Electric cars are equally as expensive.
When I look at my town (Huddersfield) there are only a few places to charge. most with only 1 or 2 charging points. all the OTHER side of town from me. For my Journey to work (Huddersfield to Tankersley, using A roads) there are NO charging points. Certainly None where i work!
Charging points for cars REALLY needs to be addressed, as well as distance per charge and time to charge and the cost of the cars when new before many people are going to buy new Electric Cars.
Now the TCO of a Electric car may be quite good. Assuming you do a lot of miles, but the Upfront cost will put off a lot of people.
I am sure when I look to replace my current car I will have a look at electric cars, I am pretty sure though that by the time I look I will probably have retired so will not be able or willing to pay the premium.
