We hear and read about electric vehicles every day, which is normal, as it is the latest global trend in the automotive industry. Most manufacturers are developing future strategies to commit to producing only such “green” cars, but this is likely to happen after 2035.
Until a few years ago, the range of electric vehicles was the main reason why most buyers avoided them. However, zero-emission vehicles are gaining popularity over traditional combustion engine cars precisely because major manufacturers have found innovative solutions that provide a greater range.
