Nowadays, protecting our Mother Earth is a highly popular issue, and there are a number of ways to achieve this goal. Driving electric vehicles is an effective way to protect the environment, while the usage rate is fairly low. In the following essay, I will discuss the reasons why electric vehicles are less chosen, and how to enhance the acceptability of electric cars.
There are two foundational causes of preventing people from choosing electric vehicles. One of the causes is that the price of electric vehicles is two to three times higher than those use diesel and petrol, which stops citizens from buying. In addition, people are lack of knowledge, even misunderstanding, about electric vehicles, which is an actually a newer idea comparing to diesel or petrol vehicles. For example, people worry that there are no adequate charging stations, or maybe the technology has not been mature enough, so the failure rate will be high.
In order to encourage people to choose electric vehicles, government and car companies need to cooperate and take some actions. First of all, government can provide financial subsidies for buying electric cars. Take Taiwan for example, government will give you 5 to 10% discount if you choose the electric vehicle rather than the petrol or diesel one. As for companies, they should make good use of social media campaign that can transmit the accurate and latest ideas about electric vehicles, so people can accept the new technology.
In conclusion, people do not want to choose electric vehicles because of the high price and the shortage of knowledge, while people understand that electric vehicles can protect our environment. Therefore, if government can provide financial aids while car companies give correct and latest knowledge by social media, electric vehicles will be highly accepted.
