EVs come with big costs

To the editor:

To all drivers of any vehicle that uses gas, keep your vehicle on the road. The reason for this is that you don’t want an electric car unless you have a large bank account. Electric cars can run $40,000 or more depending on the brand you buy.

There are a lot of faults with electric vehicles. For instance, if your battery won’t hold a charge, you will need a new one.

The prices of these batteries start at $9,000, depending on the make of vehicle you drive. With this in mind, if you are ever in an accident and hit from behind, the battery could explode and cause a fire.

So, beware of buying electric vehicles and save your money. When the battery in your electric vehicle goes bad, you will have it towed to a garage. You will purchase a new battery, and the mechanic will charge you an arm and a leg to replace it. After that, the mechanic may or may not keep the old battery, for which he will get about $2,000 or more for recycling it.

So, when you do buy an electric vehicle, make sure you have the income for it.
