Over the recent years, while electricity-operated vehicles may present less danger to the environment compared to the ones that run with petrol and diesel, not everyone prefers to use them. In this essay, the reasons are discussed first and then the ways how to encourage people to start using electric vehicles.
Some of the factors that prevent individuals to operate an electric-maneuvered vehicle may be related to personal perception and lack of knowledge. Considering people´s perception, they seem to feel that these piece of new technology may not be as efficient as the conventional ones. This means that most of them, perhaps, are skeptical about the ability of these machines and how they are operated. As a result of this, without sufficient observation and evidence, people would not risk their money and venture to use them. Another reason, which may not seem apparent, is that people don´t simply have knowledge about their existence. This may be associated with the novelty of this advancement in the market, consequently, only a few decide to purchase them.
Turning the discussion of influencing the society to the adaptation of this breakthrough in transportation, there are possible ways we can take to address this. To tackle skepticism, we can lead by example. A possible, effective way to accomplish this is for influencers such as celebrities, politicians and people in higher position to take the front and promote the usage of electric vehicles. This maybe an appropriate way of using fame; to advocate for environmental protection. In order to address the lack of knowledge, awareness through education could be implemented, which should be spearheaded by both the government and private companies. Practical steps they may be, however, promising results could be expected.
In conclusion, personal perception and the lack of knowledge maybe the reasons why individuals select conventional vehicles over electric ones. It is advised that practical ways should be done to overcome these such as advocacy and public awareness.
Oh, in the end, I feel like I did not really develop some of my ideas and arguments. :(. It was a hard topic for me to write about tbh.
Nice essay Noemi 😁
+ Clear introduction
+ Good problems and solutions – very clear link between them.
+ Good linking words showing the relationship between the problems and solutions you identify: e.g. “In order to address the lack of knowledge”
+ Lots of good vocabulary: I particularly like “spearheaded”
+ Clear conclusion
– Your idea about people not knowing about electric vehicles could be more fully developed- perhaps with an example. For band 7+ it is essential that all of your ideas are fully developed.
– Be careful between “maybe” and “may be”: e.g. “This maybe an appropriate way of using fame” (it should be may be)
