Range Anxiety

“Range anxiety” happens when people worry that their electric cars will run out of power before they can charge them. Imagine a family going on a road trip in an electric car. They might get nervous about how far the car can go before needing a charge, and they plan their trip around places to charge the car. This worry can make people hesitant to buy electric cars, even though they’re better for the environment. But as more charging stations pop up and electric cars can go longer distances, people are starting to feel less anxious about it, which is good news for electric cars and the environment.
