How are car manufacturers making electric cars accessible?
I really want to buy an electric car to be more eco-friendly, but the high price tag stops me every time. Are automakers doing anything to make electric cars more accessible?
Answer provided by
Looking into buying a new car is an exciting time, and choosing to go electric is a great eco-friendly choice, but you’re not alone in wishing they were cheaper and accessible to more drivers.
In addition to the high initial price tag, consumers might face roadblocks in electric car ownership by not having a designated spot to charge up, or not being in an area with very many chargers.
In 2021, the Biden-Harris administration declared that in partnership with auto manufacturers, greater accessibility for electric cars is a huge goal for the administration. In addition to this, more and more automakers are adding electric cars to their lineups.
Affordable brands like Honda, Toyota, Kia, and Volkswagen all have plans to release new, more cost-effective electric vehicles in the near future.
