Trends Around The World For Electric Cars
Depending on where you live, you may have noticed an increase in electric or hybrid cars on the road. If you haven’t, you might need to take a closer look! Last year in the United States, electric vehicle sales increased by 79% from 2017 and that isn’t even the hottest spot for electric cars right now. Whether you’re in the market for a new car soon or are just curious about advances in green technology, read on to learn about some of the electric vehicle trends for 2019 (provided by The Zebra).
As efforts to prevent climate change grow in importance, renewable energy sources will remain to be key factors in consumer purchasing decisions. The electric vehicle industry doesn’t show any signs of slowing down either. Top manufacturers from around the world include China, the United States, and Germany.
Governments play a large role in the rate of technology adoption. Not only does there need to be a solid infrastructure in place in terms of things like charging stations, but rebates and tax credits can also encourage switching. While some governments are slowing down or rolling back programs, others are just ramping up. The next few years will be a vital turning point in environmental policies and will likely change the future of transportation as more electric or gas-alternative cars hit the road.
