Electric Car Brands

Electric Car Brands

The modern automobile industry is characterized by two significant disadvantages – the damage it causes to the environment and the non-renewability of expensive exhaustible resources used as fuel. As a result, the use of more affordable and environmentally friendly electricity, which was already used to create the first cars more than 180 years ago, has become relevant. The first modern mass-produced electric car was the GM EV1 from 1996. Particularly popular models in this area include the Toyota RAV4 EV, ZENN, ZAP Xebra, General Motors EV1, Tesla, and others.

Electric cars have a number of other advantages – minimization of refueling costs, no negative impact on the environment, low noise effect, increased traffic safety, reliability, and reduced cost. But there are also negative aspects – an undeveloped system of recharging stations, low mileage, speed limits, high charging time, low load capacity, and the need to replace the battery every three years.
