After nearly a century of dominance by internal combustion engines (ICE) in the private transportation sector, electric vehicles (EV) are ready to run the show now. The revolution from conventional gasoline-powered vehicles to EVs have been slow but steady. As environmental awareness is growing and the efficiency and the emission standards are tightening, established automakers have already committed to offering a wide range of pure electric cars in the future. ‘The future is electric’ is no more a catchphrase but has become a reality. Besides its eco-friendliness, with its cost-effective running and maintenance costs, and features such as instant torque, EVs are the prospected way for the world to travel.
The rolling out of charging infrastructure has been a major barrier toward making EVs a natural part of the transportation ecosystem. While comparing with ICE, the inconvenience for long-distance travel has been a major downside for EVs, due to their range-per-charge and charging time requirements. A few companies have already made some strides on this regard by rolling out supercharging stations and portable charging solutions. Installation of a home charging station has also become a quick and reliable process today. Besides, scientists are spending considerable effort on the battery technology to reduce their charging time and use of rare-earth metals, and to improve their lifetime degradability and recyclability. To keep up with the growing demands of the industry, companies have also started to invest significantly in future-proofed EV charging software. Other major advancements are going on concerning the infrastructure and features such as connectivity, safety, information, and in-car entertainment. Autonomous driving is another sphere where EVs could make a significant leap. As the big players are plunging millions into the EV market, the prices are certainly going to fall, and the choices are going to get diverse.
