A luxury vehicle retailer has cited numerous reasons why car buyers sometimes regret buying electric cars.
The YouTube creator revealed the downsides he realized in developing different brands of electric vehicles and also shared some of the reasons why cars are seen as the vehicles of the future.
Mark Holubetz (@ECPP) said on his account that he posts content with the goal of teaching his subscribers “all about premium, luxury and exotic cars” from over 200,000 YouTubers.
“There are many reasons to buy an electric car, but there are also many reasons not to do it,” says a recent video.
“If you compare electric [versus] If you drive petrol or internal combustion (IC) engine cars, you may think you will get a big improvement if you switch to electric cars, but maybe you just regret buying that car.”
“A lot of people believe that electric cars are the future,” he said in the clip while walking around a dealer’s parking lot.
Because of this, he said, automakers are starting to design cars that fit that narrative.
The auto professional commented, “And for all the reasons that many believe are the right reasons to buy one.”
He emphasized respect for the environment, performance, quiet stillness, environmental sustainability, attractive design and technology.
Holubetz also addressed the “unfortunate reality” he noted about electric vehicles, and that after owning one, a percentage of people choose to switch back to gas cars.
“There are a number of reasons why you shouldn’t actually buy an electric vehicle.”
He emphasized: “You can make a conscious, intelligent and informed decision about why you should not buy an electric car.”
Apparently, collector cars are not necessarily roadworthy, the dealer said.
He mentioned problems with Tesla’s charging stations, e.g. B. how long they have to stay plugged in before they get power, and concerns that EV owners often have about the placement of charging stations across the US
“If you look at the map and actually can’t find a charging station, you get really nervous and also very concerned,” explained Holubetz.
Tesla cars require adapters, which can also be costly for drivers, he said.
“There, there [are] fittings [and] “There’s the whole network, the range anxiety, and the idea that the infrastructure just isn’t ready yet,” admitted the pundit.
He continued, “A second reason why you probably shouldn’t be thinking about buying an electric vehicle right now is the sheer cost of ownership of these vehicles.”
Holubetz explained: “Getting into one of these electric vehicles is enormously expensive.”
For example, he talked about a Chevy Bolt, which he doesn’t think is an incredibly expensive electric vehicle, but does have its drawbacks.
“It’s a really cute vehicle, it has some great touches and details,” he said while giving a close-up of the car.
“And yes, well, they put in some interesting headlights.”
After admitting that there were a few things to admire about the car’s exterior design, he made a blunt admission.
“Bolts are nothing more than a glorified Buick Encore,” said the dealer.
He elaborated, “Everyone also knows that Tesla, Porsche and Audi EVs are all big bucks, so the only way to get into EVs at any price is to get into something like that.”
There is one explosive fact that Holubetz shared about Chevy Bolts.
“And the only reason this one is $30,000 compared to the 24,000 Buick Encore is because they have a reputation for booming,” he admitted.
