The passion for cars is something that starts early. Who has never seen a child fascinated by the wheels of a toy car, the first remote control car, the first car ride on the lap of parents in the front seat with so many buttons on the dashboard, the experience of driving the car through a car wash and staying inside, the stops at the gas station, and so on…

Did I say gas? Well, cars that can run on electric batteries are already a reality. The energy source has changed, but the passion for cars will probably become even more interesting.

Electric cars, which only a few years ago were more appealing to people concerned about the end of non-renewable fuels or the impact of fuels on the environment, are gaining more fans every day. With bold designs and multiple benefits that these vehicles have, it’s a matter of a few years before they become the majority of cars on the roads worldwide. A study conducted by the Research Center for Solar Energy and Hydrogen in Baden-Württemberg (ZSW), Germany, proves this information. Here are some figures:

• 2018 started with 55% more electric vehicles compared to the previous year;

• In China there is already a fleet of more than 1.2 million electric cars;

• In the United States, the fleet that was 195 thousand increased to 750 thousand in one year;

• In Germany, from 54,490, it increased to 92,740 electric cars.

Until a few years ago there was not a wide variety of vehicles that appealed to all “pockets” and preferences. Today the variety of electric cars ranges from compact cars to SUVs and even pickup trucks. Recently, due to increased demand, new research aimed at improving the weaknesses of electric cars, and the entry of new manufacturers in this market, battery costs are falling and public charging locations are becoming popular, thus expanding the range of potential consumers of electric cars.
