Connecticut Automotive Retailers Association: “Ending Range Anxiety Is The Real Key” to Increasing EV Sales
The “range anxiety” term that General Motors tried to trademark continues to rear its ugly head.
As the New Haven Register reports:
“The biggest hurdle to selling more electric vehicles to Connecticut consumers is ending anxiety that they have about running out of power and not being anywhere a charging station.”
Jim Fleming, president of the Connecticut Automotive Retailers Association, says that “ending range anxiety is the real key” to increasing electric vehicle sales in Connecticut.
“Think of the anxiety that people have when their [ICE] car gets down to a quarter of a tank.”
If “range anxiety” is still holding back EV sales, then there remains much work to be done. Somehow, we must work harder to convince the general public that EVs will typically meet their daily needs.
How do we do that?
