The EV revolution is well on its way to dominating the automotive industry, but these incredible machines are far from perfect. Even Tesla, arguably the leader of the EV market, still has issues with long charge times, cars catching on fire, inadequate ranges, supply chain instability, cost of entry, battery degradation, and the ecological impact of manufacturing.
