FairCharge Pot Holes Not Caused By EVs -GB News
Updated: Aug 13
Quentin Wilson, a motoring journalist, discussed concerns that electric cars might contribute to road damage due to their weight. He highlighted how EV adoption has grown substantially since 2019, despite the Telegraph's intermittent negative stories about electric cars. Wilson emphasized that the slight increase in weight of EVs compared to combustion cars isn't a major issue for road infrastructure. He noted that headlines should focus on the broader problem of heavier vehicles impacting roads rather than singling out electric cars. Wilson shared his own positive experience with EVs, having driven them for nine years and over 150,000 miles without significant issues. He acknowledged that electric cars may not suit everyone's needs, but they work well for a substantial number of people.
