    According to many forecasts, it was supposed to be slowly completed by this time, for example, 1 million electric cars were to be driven in Germany. But the reality is completely different and will not change immediately. Why, says the MIT study.

    When reading the news of the arrival of new electric vehicles , one might get the impression that the ice has really moved and we are starting to enter a time when battery cars are no longer a toy for the rich. In the end, many have just associated the end of this and the beginning of the next decade with their massive boom, and in Germany, according to Angela Merkel, 1 million electric cars were to be driven by now. But the reality is different and interest in them is minimal despite generous subsidies .

    Yet, despite not fulfilling these forecasts, many still think that we are on the threshold of the electric revolution. However, as the results of the study conducted within the Energy Initiative Group at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) point out, such development cannot be envisaged. The price of electric cars, despite all non-standard support, remains a major obstacle to their mass expansion and will remain for many years.

    MIT even claims that advanced technology will never reach affordable prices if it relies on lithium-ion batteries , which today maintain the vast majority of mobile power appliances. Even the next decade may not be enough to at least reduce the differences in prices of conventional and electric vehicles enough to actually compete with both solutions.

    The findings of the scientists are therefore in contradiction with the conclusions of other research groups that predicted the availability of electric cars in the next five years. MIT facts show that the natural transition to lower-emission vehicles cannot be expected for the time being as conditions for a fall in battery prices have not occurred. The only way to balance the game is the introduction of high environmental subsidies , respectively. introduction of restrictions on the operation of vehicles with internal combustion engines. Both occur, but such a situation is unsustainable in the long term. Even an otherwise rich China could not afford to keep high subsidies in force at the first sign of economic trouble , and let's not expect it elsewhere.
