People don't like these electric cars, survey shows

It must be 'cheap', charge quickly and be able to drive around 560 kilometers between charges, because people want to get into an electric car, new research shows.

What are motorists actually willing to pay for an electric car, how slow must it go at the charging station and how much range must there be on a full battery?

This is what a number of potential electric car owners have been asked about in a new survey. And their answer is – perhaps not so surprisingly – that electric cars should ideally not cost too much.

The pain threshold is $50,000. This corresponds to DKK 345,000. But, drivers say, the price should preferably be below that.

This is the conclusion of the analysis firm BCG in a new survey.

However, the price is not the only deciding factor for future electric car owners. The cars must also be able to charge in no more than 20 minutes and be able to drive around 560 kilometers on the same charge.

And there is actually only one car that comes closest to being able to offer that. At least in the US. Here, right now, it doesn't get better than the Hyundai Ioniq 6.

At home, however, the Hyundai Ioniq 6 can also follow. That is, on the price. The Korean electric car starts from DKK 335,000.

But BCG also assesses that the car brands find it difficult to meet one of the motorists' demands in particular. Namely the charging time. If, on the other hand, motorists are willing to wait five minutes longer, it will be technologically much easier, it says.

However, the 25-minute waiting time is still significantly slower than the time it takes to fill up a petrol or diesel car completely. So unless you have plenty of time and patience, the perfect electric car is not waiting just around the corner.

Earlier this month, however, another study concluded that the car factories may already be able to build electric cars that are cheaper than the fossil cars in 2027 – that is, in less than 3 years. Read more about it here.

All the while, more and more car brands are backing away from otherwise ambitious goals of only building electric cars. Mercedes has, among other things, said that it will still take years, because the electric car is competitive.
