The transition to electric vehicles may be slower than expected. As an early EV adopter, I’ve been mostly satisfied with my Tesla. But after two years of ownership, the shine is wearing off. Public charging stations are now overcrowded and unreliable. Batteries degrade over time, cutting into range. And road trips require numerous charging stops, making renting a gas car cheaper and faster. New EVs still come with a high price tag too. While the electric future is inevitable, adoption will likely be a gradual march rather than a rapid overhaul. Charging infrastructure and battery tech need time to advance and become more affordable. Patience and realistic expectations will serve us well on the slow road to an all-electric future.
