Electric Vehicles: The Cars Of the Future

The total number of electric vehicles worldwide is expected to represent 10% of the global vehicle market by 2020. However, issues such as limited battery life and long charging times reflect that these vehicles are likely to remain in the dedicated product space.

As more and more people become environmentally conscious, fleets of gasoline-powered cars and trucks, which contribute to air pollution, cause a huge amount of global warming, put our lives at risk of health problems and make us dependent on oil, traded for a friendlier environment, options such as electric utility vans and car models.

Currently, there are three types of car engines made by automakers. One category with which we are most familiar is fuel-only vehicles, which make up the vast majority of cars on the world's roads, while other categories include vehicles that run on electricity and gasoline.

The final category, which is a relatively new option among the three, is electric cars, which run on motors that rely entirely on electricity.

Due to the overall low maintenance and future costs compared to gasoline vehicles, more and more people and companies are choosing electric vehicles for commercial and personal use. Vehicles driven by electric motors do not directly pollute the exhaust pipe when powered by electricity.

Since other renewable energy sources such as solar and wind provide most of our electricity needs, electric vehicles will not add to air pollution. These vehicles offer consumers the opportunity to use natural resources and reduce the consumption of fossil fuels.
