Electric Vehicles: Dealers hesitant to roll out e-cars due to lack of charging stations in Kerala

Car manufacturers who have brought out electric cars are yet to roll out these vehicles into Kerala market. Representatives of car dealers said that lack of public charging stations (PCS) was the main reason for not making these vehicles available for customers.

A sales representative with the dealer of Hyundai said, “We are yet to get sales approval for introducing the vehicles to the market. It is practically difficult to introduce the vehicles as there are not enough PCS. If a vehicle stops in between a journey, it will not be possible to recharge the vehicle and it will reflect negatively on us.”

A motorist driving from Thiruvananthapuram to Kasaragod through MC Road will have to cover an approximate distance of 577km, and he/she will have to charge the vehicle at least once in between as a fully charged electric car can cover up to only a maximum of 450km. Read Mre
