8 Reasons EVs are the Future of Transportation
You may have heard some exciting announcements regarding EVs recently, such as the LAPD’s leasing of BMW i3s for their fleet. And there’s also the IEA’s report, calling electric vehicles as the “only profiled technology” contributing to the effort to limit global temperature rise to under 2 degrees Celsius. Naturally, news like this makes you wonder what else is to come.
Auto Loan Solutions created this interesting infographic about the EV revolution, to show the impact they have on the auto industry, and other sectors as well. Aptly titled, “8 Reasons EVs are the Future of Transportation”, it details the trends, triggers and transformations making electric cars a mainstay in modern civilization.
What’s interesting about this piece (and the headlines mentioned earlier) is how they’re contrasting the claims of those who call EVs “impractical”.
Some skeptics have described a so-called prevailing apathy towards electric cars. These critics say drivers have no interest or incentive (other than what governments offer) to buy electric cars, citing a decline in the sales of these vehicles (such as the Nissan Leaf and Chevy Volt).
But this argument only presents a sales perspective, ignoring overall trends. Gas prices have declined, perhaps leading to an increase in buyer confidence towards gasoline-engine cars. But what happens when they soar again?
Additionally, skeptics often fail to mention the momentum EVs have gained in other areas. Anyone who’s willing to look at the issue objectively knows that electric car sales have increased, as well as the scope of charging infrastructure and their industrial applications.
As someone who believes in the future of electric vehicle technology, you don’t need validation. However, this infographic highlights facts and stats that counter much of what skeptics use to discredit the EV trend. Take a look!
