Over the years, electric cars have evolved immensely and with electric cars now becoming more popular and frequent choice for car buyers, we’re asking this question, is this the future?
Tesla is leading the way for electric vehicle production as they’re constantly developing and improving their battery to increase the power and distance it operates at. They’ve made huge headway, and many other car companies have taken notice and realised electric cars are slowly becoming the future. The overuse of fossil fuels and increased damage to the earth has highlighted the need for electric motors, with many governments around the world coming together to implement new vehicle transport limitations.
In the UK, the Greater Manchester Clean Air Zone is slowly coming into fruition, with stricter rules on vehicle emission rates. If your automobile doesn’t meet the required emission standard then you will face a penalty. Naturally, this has caused huge debates but the ultimate outcome remains the same – the government wants the public to be driving electrical cars by 2030.
2030 seems like a while away, but in reality, it’s only 8 years which isn’t too far. Since announcing these plans, it’s caused a wave of people to start buying electric or hybrid cars so they will not be penalised for entering clean air zone areas. Also, it’s caused the public to think long term, as if they buy an electric car now they will be comfortable in years to come, however, this sudden influx of electric motors has increased the need and demand for them – which means the prices are high.
Electric vehicles are the future due to the improved sustainability the battery possesses. It loosens our grip on using fossil fuels which have become a finite resource in recent years. People around the globe are accepting the idea of electric automobiles for regular cars and HGV vehicles, it’s just a matter of time before it becomes ‘normal’.
The benefits of electric cars:
- There will be less noise to start with, so you won’t be hearing loud engines screaming down local roads.
- The environment will be much cleaner and clearer, which means we will be breathing in much cleaner air – this will satisfy and ease many doubters.
- The running cost will decrease exponentially as currently it only costs £1.30 to drive 100 miles compared to the high petrol and diesel charges the country faces at the moment.
What is your verdict? Will you be purchasing an electric car now or in the future?
It all comes down to the impact they have on us long term and the benefits they will reap for the earth. Overall, it’s clear electric vehicles have grown to extreme measures within the last 100 years, and they will continue to advance in the future.
