Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology
Why Electric Cars Are The Next Big Thing
As the world shifts away from fossil fuels and other nonrenewable resources, the focus on more sustainable products becomes stronger. Electric vehicles provide a way for humans to maintain transportation needs while producing cleaner-burning energy and reducing pollution.
For a long time, Tesla was your only option for all-electric vehicles, but now technology has caught up to even storied car manufacturers like BMW and Chevrolet. These car manufacturers recognize the long term potential of all-electric, plug-in cars. They are pursuing this option as an alternative to standard engines and even plug-in hybrid vehicles.
The mileage still isn’t on par with gas or hybrid engines, but it’s catching up. These cars go farther on a single charge than they ever have. In the future, we may find electric motors in SUVs and trucks, not just tiny vehicles, and the fossil-fuel driven engine could be history.
