Let’s say you’re in the market for a new car.
And since you want to ride the wave of the future, you visit your Tesla dealer to check out their EVs.
You love the Tesla Model S – it’s sporty and gets about 412 miles per battery charge.
Sounds good, right?
Then… sticker shock.
You see that this car costs US $81,190.
(And that’s for the stripped-down version!)
You just know there has to be a more affordable EV, so you go to an Audi showroom and take the Audi e-tron for a spin.
It rides nice and costs much less – about $55,000– but you discover it only gets 208 miles per charge.
That’s not enough driving range for you, so you head to your local Volkswagen dealer to check out the Volkswagen ID.4.
You find it’s a good value at $42,000, but its range isn’t much better– only 250 miles per charge.
See the problem with today’s EVs?
