The electric car has been experiencing an unprecedented surge in popularity in recent years. But what does the future of these ecologically-friendly vehicles look like? Here's what industry experts have to say. Increasing Variety of Models As the technology around electric cars continues to advance, we are likely to see an increased range of vehicles becoming available.
From small and compact city cars, to luxury SUVs and sports cars - we'll start to see electric vehicles in all shapes, sizes, and price points.
Shorter Charging Times
We know that charging time is one of the main concern of electric car drivers. But, with the introduction of ultra-fast charging technologies, charging times are likely to become shorter and shorter in the future. Alongside conventional EV chargers, expect to see commercial fast-charging points popping up around the city.
Bigger Batteries & Longer Range
As battery technology continues to improve, electric cars will become increasingly capable of traveling much further on a single charge. We are already seeing big developments in this area, with electric cars now capable of traveling over 400 miles on a charge.
Autonomous Electric Vehicles
The future of electric cars is likely to be heavily intertwined with autonomous vehicles. With the emergence of self-driving cars, electric vehicles will be an excellent choice due to their low-emission powertrains. Expect to see more and more autonomous electric cars on the roads in the future.
The cost of an electric vehicle is still one of the main barriers to adoption. But, with advances in battery technology and other components, prices are likely to become more competitive in the future. This will make electric cars a much more attractive proposition for consumers.
We can expect to see a lot of progress in electric car technology in the coming years. With shorter charging times, increased range, greater variety of models, and more affordable prices, electric cars will become even more attractive and accessible in the future.
