One major drawback to using electric rocket engines is that they generate comparatively low thrust. This means they can take a significantly long time to accelerate a spacecraft to its required speed, which makes them unsuitable for some space missions, particularly those that require quick acceleration like manned missions or those needing to escape a planet's gravitational pull.
