The concept of using electricity to power automobiles has been around for a while. However, the growth in production and implementation of these automobiles was gradual. About two decades ago, the first few hybrid vehicles came into existence and while they might not have been the first choice for users of conventional vehicles, they did instigate the production of the all-electric vehicles of today. And the present is taking to them faster than they did with their hybrid predecessors. With resources and research being dedicated to EVs, the future they hold in the country seems to be a bright one. The factors prompting such a future are multiple. Let’s have a look:

1. Environmental Impact
The EVs of today have the ability to produce zero tailpipe emissions. They neither require burning fossil fuels nor do they emit any smoke. The use of these vehicles thus doesn’t aid the production of greenhouse gases; a major contributing force to climate change. Apart from environmental benefits, this extraordinary quality of EVs also allows for cleaner air quality, thereby benefiting public health.

2. Cost-effective
While an EV might be priced slightly higher than a regular petrol or diesel-run vehicle, it doesn’t require fuel. And with the rising fuel prices, the absence of this additional expense enables substantial savings, thus making EVs a financially viable option in the long run. Furthermore, since EVs don't have a complex mechanism, they require less maintenance and therefore, the running cost is lesser too. Furthermore, solutions and offerings that can help you own your dream EV are easily accessible.

3. Noiseless
Since EVs do not have an internal combustion engine that produces vibrations, they emit less sound. This technology further reduces the contribution towards noise pollution. Curbing the same significantly reduces stress and anxiety associated with noise pollution while also making the riding experience all the more enjoyable.

4. Compact
When it comes to two-wheelers, the lack of complex machinery allows for an EV to be lightweight and compact, making it easy to park and manoeuvre. The lack of additional parts contained by regular bikes also allows for EVs to have increased storage space. 

With their design, financial feasibility and eco-friendly nature, EVs are headed towards a future that is not just bright but one that is green, one that has the planet at the centre. While there are concerns about the source of its electricity, whether coal-fueled or otherwise remain, its long-term usage allows for a drastic reduction in harmful emissions. With enterprises offering warranty extensions and effective buy-back policies, a majority of individuals are seeing merit in investing in an EV. And as more and more people have started adopting EVs, EV charging units across the country have also seen a rise, thus solving the problem of travelling long distances without having enough charge to do so. In fact, some EVs come with their own charging unit, which can be installed in one’s home. Needless to say, the ease with which EVs are available, they are bound to be an integral part of the days to come.
