Electric vehicle owners faced a new string of challenges when frigid temperatures and wintry conditions gripped the Midwest.

“It’s been a little frustrating,” one woman told Fox Business. “I had to charge like multiple times every day the last couple days. I had to wait for like 45 minutes for a charger and then I pull in. It doesn’t work, and then I pull out and then someone else takes the next charger. And then I had to wait again.”

Electric vehicles are facing issues including decline in performance, weaker battery life, increased charge times and even long lines.

“I was at 50% when I got here, usually from 50 to like 80, 90% it will take like 10, 15 minutes. It’s taking an hour and 20 minutes,” one driver shared at a Tesla charge station near Chicago.
