An electric car owner who has had his engine for a year has explained why he is switching back to petrol.
TikTok user benand_rews took to social media to voice his criticism of electric vehicles.
The clip begins with a clip from ITV Good Morning Britain presenter Ranvir Singh describing electric vehicles as a “total nightmare”.
The video then shows influencer Ben, who cited the vehicle’s lack of endurance as the main reason for his decision to switch.
He said: “I am currently sitting at a charging station with my electric car and have had it for just over a year.
“And tomorrow I’m selling it because the range is supposedly 250 miles, but that’s not the case.
“As soon as you get on the highway it disappears within seconds, and turning on the heater drains the battery.”
The content creator then told viewers that he had been to “five different charging stations” and was looking for an available spot.
He continued: “Some were broken and all were torn up.”
“So next week I will switch back to a petrol car.
“I wanted to help the environment, but this is just ridiculous.”
The tirade drew applause from other EV critics.
One said: “Finally someone who is honest and doesn’t deny.”
“It’s cheaper to buy a used car.”
Another chimed in: “And the government believes the nation will be ready by 2030!”
It comes after an engine expert revealed why he thinks you shouldn’t buy an electric motor.
YouTube user Mark, who runs ExoticCar Buy Placeposted a clip in which he rejects the idea of owning an electric vehicle.
Elsewhere, a major car brand is scrapping two of its most famous models while planning to produce a new electric vehicle.
US car giant Dodge has announced that it will no longer offer both the Charger and Challenger.
