Significant problems with Electric cars

Upon looking at Toyota praises and other electric cars I thought I would give a shot at explaining the problem behind electric cars. One of my major concerns if I owned an electric car would be the maintenance behind it. I mean literally could you go under the hood and change the oil? The transmission oil? Oil filters? Like you would with a normal car? No I highly doubt it. According to yahoo notes about the pruis it has been known to have high insurance, and high cost of maintenance. That being said most people would have bought the corolla instead. Another problem with electric cars are their batteries. Although they could possibly run 3-5 years but how much do they cost to replace? According to Pruischat.com they would cost $4,000 to replace and would only be covered to 100,000 miles by the warranty.

Unfortunately I have never been a fan of electric cars. All of them seem to be too weak, small, and not much fun. Aren’t cars supposed to be practical, easy to live with? And reliable? Only one electric car was made that matched these guidelines at it was the General Motors EV1 car. This car had the acceleration compared to a modern day corvette. The EV1 car was shown in the movie “who killed the electric car” and to this day there are close to none EV1’s on the road. Why? Because GM put out propaganda that it sucked and people weren’t ready for it at that time. Even though GM produced this car they lost over 2 Billion in collecting these cars back from people and shutting down all electric stations in California. Though there were minimal problems with this car, GM once again blew this out of proportion and forced owners under threats to give back their cars. Sadly this was one of the best electric cars ever produced.
