Electric Cars Are the Future: Here's Why

Hello, I am Vineeth Ananthoju and I am a freelance blogger and content writer from India.

Electric Cars Are the Future: Here's Why

The technology to build electric cars was first introduced in the late 1880s, and more than 100 years later, the number of electric cars still makes up less than 1% of all cars on the road today. While many people question whether electric cars will ever take off, recent advances in battery technology have made it possible to create electric vehicles that are both fast and powerful. In addition, there are several reasons why it’s time for electric cars to become the new normal when it comes to our vehicles.

The Benefits

1. Electric cars are more efficient than petrol or diesel cars.

2. Electric cars produce zero emissions, so they're much better for the environment. 3. Electric cars are cheaper to operate and maintain than petrol or diesel cars.

4. Electric cars have a much longer range than petrol or diesel cars.

5. Electric cars can be charged at home, so you don't have to go to a gas station.

6. Electric cars are quiet and smooth to drive.

7. Electric cars are the future of transportation!

8. They're already being mass produced by car companies like Tesla, BMW, Nissan, and Chevrolet.

9. With the global increase in electric car sales over the past decade-plus (rising from 18% in 2002 to 33% in 2016), we predict that by 2030 electric cars will overtake gasoline-powered vehicles as the world's dominant form of transportation. 10. Last year saw over 750 thousand electric vehicles sold worldwide—more than double what was sold in 2015—and that number is expected to rise sharply this year with increases in production rates from major automakers like General Motors (GM) and Renault-Nissan BVSCA).

The costs

The costs of electric cars have been dropping steadily over the past few years, making them more and more affordable for the average consumer. In addition, the cost of charging an electric car is much cheaper than fueling a petrol or diesel car. The long-term savings make electric cars a wise investment, even if the initial purchase price is higher. Electric cars are less expensive to maintain because they have fewer moving parts and need little to no oil changes. They also have fewer mechanical failures because of their simpler design. Finally, electric cars can be charged at home overnight without spending any money on fuel at all! As electricity prices continue to rise, it becomes increasingly difficult to argue that owning an electric car is not financially savvy. Even with a relatively small outlay of cash up front, you will save significantly in the long run by switching from a petrol or diesel vehicle.

The Drawbacks

While electric cars are becoming more popular, there are still some drawbacks that need to be considered. First, the initial cost of an electric car is often higher than a traditional gas-powered car. Second, electric cars require a different infrastructure than gas-powered cars, meaning that not everywhere has the ability to support them. Third, electric cars can take longer to charge than it takes to fill up a tank of gas. Fourth, the range of an electric car is often less than that of a gas-powered car. Fifth, and finally, for now at least, electric cars are unable to operate in extremely cold conditions or on steep slopes or snowy roads. But as time goes on and these cars become more popular and widespread, this list will only get shorter and shorter. Already, many countries have been making plans to phase out petrol and diesel cars. The Netherlands, Norway, Germany, Scotland, India and France have all set deadlines for when they plan to stop producing new petrol or diesel vehicles entirely. And China is following suit with plans to ban the production of fossil fuel-run vehicles by 2030. Electric cars are the future of transportation and it seems that electric cars will soon be the only option available.
