Disadvantages of Gasoline Alternatives


Fully electric cars require charging stations.

Very few charging stations are in existence.

Limited distance a fully electric car can travel, only 160km.

Long charge times.

Reduced power in vehicles.

Car accessories, such as Air Conditioning drain the battery even faster.

Despite the disadvantages, media mogul Ted Turner drives a Toyota Prius. So do actors Leonardo DiCaprio and Alec Baldwin (“Beyond Kyoto: How Your Life Will Change”). These celebrities do act as role-model and an endorsement for electric/ hybrid vehicles. Although, despite these endorsements, a great extent of the population are still not satisfied with the new developing technologies of the electric and hybrid vehicles.
