Are Electric Cars The Future?
Protecting the environment has now become trendy, which means that many well-known companies and brands are changing the way they operate in order to appear eco-friendly and attract new clientele. After all, everything has the potential to be a marketing scheme in the 21st century.
When it comes to the car industry, it is electrics that are taking command, and many expect them to completely outnumber the current petrol and diesel powered-vehicles we know of and use today within the next two decades. Read on to find out whether electric cars really are the future…
One of the most recognised benefits that electric cars can provide is reducing the contribution that we make to pollution. After all, driving a gas-powered vehicle releases fumes into our atmosphere and contributes to poor air quality. An electric vehicle has zero exhaust emissions which means that we will create less pollution the more they are used.
In fact, electric cars can be powered and recharged using renewable energy sources too, which means that you do not have to rely on a grid thousands of miles away burning fossils fuel as you can opt for a solar powered PV system instead, reducing greenhouse emissions once again.
Using an electric car is not only great for the environment, it can be great for your bank balance too. After all, electric cars are considerably cheaper to run in comparison to the bulky fuel guzzling machines that have been around for the last century. For example, charging an electric car costs a third of the price than it does to put petrol in a similar vehicle. In fact, many governments also offer incentives for those who decide to go green which can also be a great economical advantage.
The government also plays a big role in the decisions that we make as a nation, and it could be argued that a dependence on electric vehicles in the future would be the result of those in high positions thinking for us. After all, in 2017 the government announced a plan to ban the sale of all new diesel and petrol vehicles by 2040, meaning that anybody wanting to purchase a new vehicle must opt for electric. Of course, this is the result of petrol and diesel vehicles damaging our health and causing a shocking increasing in air pollution, suggesting that there is no other alternative than to embrace new technology like electric cars.
Here at V12 Sports and Classics we understand that poor air quality is the result of an increased use of petrol and diesel vehicles. After all, there are more people on the road in 2018 than there have been in the last decade! By changing the way we treat our planet the experts say that it isn’t too late to reverse the damage we have created. Perhaps only selling electrics cars in 2040 really could be the solution.
