The electric vehicles (EV) future is clear and currently has the support from the capital market, demands from consumers, the push from automakers and battery makers to develop, as well as produce practical and advanced electric vehicles – all in an effort to slow climate change.
With the accelerated technological advancement made through the years, EVs are seen as a transport solution with great potential and are set to undergo further changes and improvements in the near future.
The EV Hype Has a Purpose
The electric car is part of a response to a major challenge to drastically reduce the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) and atmospheric pollutants emitted by various modes of transportation.
Objectives set by the Paris Agreement in particular have led the European Union to draw up legislation on the amount of CO2 that a car may produce when driving in a bid to improve air quality and battle climate change.
Building a Sustainable Environment through Electric Mobility
Car manufacturers have anticipated this paradigm shift more than a decade ago and started developing vehicles to run entirely on electricity, ensuring zero-emission travel to be produced on a large scale.
Through tests and data acquired in Europe, an EV has a lower carbon footprint over its life-cycle than its internal combustion engine (ICE) powered counterpart by almost 40 percent on average. This percentage varies depending on the energy mix used for the production of energy in its geographic location.
Clearly of interest for personal-use vehicles, electric mobility is just as relevant for other modes of transport. Battery-powered buses, electric bicycles and small electric motor vehicles like electric scooters have spread across cities around the world to provide sustainable transportation alternatives.
Aside from that, electric mobility also brings about progress in energy conservation on a wider scale. In certain parts of Europe, a car-sharing concept service relieves traffic congestion and offers vehicle access to users when they need, while also adding more EVs to their fleets. These new modes of mobility reinforce the choice of transport services available, whether private or public and with electric, they increase the number of zero-emissions journeys and the resulting benefits for the environment.
The Electric Car Is Always Improving through Various Initiatives
In the early days the range of an EV made it suitable for short journeys but with technological advancement, it will now move further. With new and current EV manufacturers seeing the future capabilities and adaptability of the electric car, the advantages are clear, especially the value of zero-emission vehicles which hold a lot of potential for creating a more sustainable future. With more countries supporting the Green Vehicles Initiative, these would factor in consumers buying decisions which would help drive EV sales up.
With a focus on consumers, the initiatives would lead car manufacturers with a set of customer-centric solutions that ease the customer journey. Aside from dedicated apps, having charging points close to their work, home, roadside or company car park would be a game-changer when it comes to purchasing their first EV.
Several countries are developing the installation of charging infrastructure and constantly expanding national networks to effectively serve electric car drivers which helps drive interest in EV.
The acceleration of the development of electric mobility depends on car manufacturers, energy sector bodies and pressure from public authorities with policies that support the purchase of electric vehicles and the creation of charging infrastructure. European countries and the US. Car manufacturers are coming to the same conclusion, a transition to green energies to fight against climate changes.
By 2030 and 2035, more and more car manufacturers have announced that they would be manufacturing and selling only zero-emission vehicles, which are cleaner and software-enabled electric mobility.
Carsome’s Marketplace for Tesla Models Makes Going Electric Easier
