It is true that currently electric cars are reason for envy for many people, perhaps some who cannot afford it and others who can, prefer to continue their path of combustion. In any case, the report created by Línea Directa in early 2023, shows figures that give real vertigo: 12.3 million drivers have suffered vandalism in their vehicles with a total of €930 millionevery year, in damage.

It should be said, in the latter case, that the fines and sanctions that these drivers face are really important, much more so if there are victims inside the cars. However, going back to classic vandalism, they are five the big ones reasons for unload anger against a vehicle:
- solve a problem with the owner.
- A bad parking.
- have a New carthis is where electric vehicles would come in.
- acquire a high end car.
- Simply, they like to cause damage.
The acts of vandalism have a clear profile: person from 18 and 44 years90% of these actions occur in the public road and with damage less than 500 euros in 62% of the occasions. If you wonder what place of our geography vandalize more vehiclesat the head is the Valencian Community, Murcia and Basque Country, while the places with more civic people are La Rioja, Cantabria and Asturias. Most electric cars are charged outside the home, either at a point set up for this purpose or in chargers available in places like Mercadona, and that is why they must suffer the wrath of people who are not only envious of these vehicles, but also who decide to demonstrate their lack of neurons with their bodies.
