Since 2010, the escalating numbers of electric mobility - including commercial vehicles - has generated a focus on the development of a green transport strategy around the world.
Electric cars represent one of the most promising pathways to enlarged energy safety and decreased emissions of gases and other contaminants. I’m sure that this way to think and act will rapidly grow in the next future, changing the world.
Electric vehicles diminish dependence on petroleum and require a source of electricity that is often domestic and comparatively inexpensive. Furthermore eco-friendly cars have the potential to open innovation and generate new highly developed business that stimulate job expansion and augment economic success.
From Europe to North America to Asia, the history of electric cars is expression of constant ingenuity and adaptation of the world in transportation. The future of electric mobility has still to be written, and it will depend on the accomplishments and experiences of previous time and of course it will also depend on consumer’s response to the introduction of new products; for example in California, for each Audi A6 sedan, three Tesla sedans are sold.
Estimates based on recent changes in electric vehicle sales predict that the United States will be the biggest electric vehicle market by 2020 thanks to companies such as Tesla that are redefining the image of plug-in electric cars in North America. The report's analysis indicate that the growing attention on electric cars is converting into higher sales and as result States like Texas have seen a remarkable growth in the quantity of electric cars charging stations in 2012.
Volkswagen, Mercedes, BMW, Renault, and Nissan (the latter two made an alliance to invest $5.32 billion in electric cars development, in order to create a strong position on the market).
Car manufacturers investing in the development of electric vehicles are facing challenges in persuading a larger number of drivers to buy electric cars and for such reason Nissan wants more competition on the market therefore more companies enter into electric market, the better it is, because that creates mass market adoption closer.
Other key points to face in order to develop a sustainable market are the introduction of new models and the decrease in the upfront ownership cost of cars.
The entrance of about 15 new electric cars models in the next 12 months, such as the BMW i8, the Tesla Model S, the Audi R8 and Q7, the Porsche 918 Spyder, and the Mercedes SLS AMG ECell, will make stronger competition in the global electric vehicle market and bring prices down. Additionally, governments in different countries have offered incentives and reimbursement for electric vehicle customers effective 2015.
We can quietly say that electric vehicles represent the green eco future.
