There is little doubt that electric vehicles will eventually displace the gasoline variety just as the latter displaced horse drawn transport.
Even today, electric vehicles are superior in performance in every way except for limitation on long distance travel and relatively higher initial cost.These disadvantages will be overcome by improved battery design and increased sales.
All urban transport needs could be met at this time by the use of electric vehicles in terms of technological capability. It may be noted that for 2014 well over 70,000 electric vehicles...Read More detail
