GM CEO Fritz Henderson said recently that “range anxiety” will be a hindrance to the adoption of electric cars, according to the website, gm-volt.com.
“Everybody is trying to solve the problem of range because we have range anxiety,” Henderson said. “The consumer doesn’t want to be strained. We had the same problem with the EV1, not enough range.”
Henderson added that cost of EVs is paramount to consumers.
“The three things you need are battery costs coming down, motor costs coming down, control costs coming down,” he said during an interview with The Washington Post.
