Owing to the internal architecture of Li-Ion batteries, they lack pick-up that is so wanted in congested/high-traffic roads and hilly regions.
Typical charging time of batteries is 2-6 hours. Even for batteries with shorter charging time, the time spent on charging is still a large portion of the total operation time.
A typical Li-Ion battery, integrated with a battery management system, has a life of only about 400-600 cycles meaning that battery must be replaced every 1-1.5 years.
Motor controllers available today cannot perform efficiently in higher temperatures and degrade quickly. This leads to shorter battery life than predicted.
Due to long charging time and limited parking space, a charging station can only serve a small number of vehicles. This wastes precious time and is also uneconomical for the charging station.
Though many public transport systems are switching to green energy, a complete pollution-free trip is available only in small areas.
