Ever since the first electric cars quietly hit the streets, ‘range anxiety’ has been a top customer concern, especially in a big country like Australia.
Running out of fuel isn’t unique to electric cars, but car owners either because electric cars need special charging stations, because they’re difficult to recharge if the worst happens, or because we I’m definitely more worried about what happens to electric cars because I’m used to it. Panicking about electronics due to dead batteries in my cell phone, which has been in use for over a decade…
Whatever the cause, ecar manufacturers have made great efforts to expand their advertising reach through technical improvements to make their vehicles more attractive. It makes competitive claims about performance statistics.
South Korea’s antitrust regulator, the Korea Fair Trade Commission, has fined Tesla $2.2 million (or 2.85 billion won) for failing to inform drivers about reduced advertising coverage due to low temperatures after the complaint was filed. announced a fine.
KFTC said on its website that it exaggerates “vehicle range on a single charge, fuel efficiency compared to gasoline vehicles, and supercharger performance.”
According to the KFTC, a Tesla’s range in cold weather could be 50.5% of the stated number.
Tesla later stated on its website, “Performance and mileage may vary by model. Displayed mileage may vary due to external factors such as speed, weather and road conditions.
Range anxiety isn’t unique to Tesla.

‘For example, according to forbes, the MINI was 32% off in electric range, while the Jaguar I-Pace was just 1.5% off. However, the real impact occurs when road test drivers estimate highway range. At steady high cruising speeds, Forbes reported that the reported average range deficit jumps to 37%.
This is separate from the range loss due to natural battery degradation, which reaches about 20% for most vehicles under warranty, and severely impacts the resale value of electric vehicles.
But don’t worry. Promoting electric vehicles has become a collaborative hobby in a lithium-obsessed world. As such, there are plenty of advice and hundreds of inches of articles out there to help calm those plagued by range anxiety.
For UK electric car owners who waited in line for over three hours over Christmas, this was perhaps cold consolation. A never-ending rail strike has overwhelmed UK roads and crippled the existing electric vehicle infrastructure.

One Tesla owner daily mail: ‘My new Tesla owner and I are very disappointed with our charging larks. Another user said, “Tesla is charging too much to use the charger. We find pod points with the best value for money averaging 40 pence.
This is not a Tesla problem. Tesla is one of the most successful electric car makers, and it only feels so because he’s a sizable portion of the UK’s 420,000 electric cars. They’re stuck bearing the brunt of their teething problems in the public eye.
I don’t know if these problems are temporary or fatal.
