When planning your future, it is essential to consider and map out where that future is heading, and as importantly where the opportunities are, also for a generation as purpose-driven as yours, choosing a career that aligns with your values is the right thing to do. Sustainability is the recurrent theme that underlines where businesses need to focus. This is why the automotive industry has been witnessing explosive growth in recent years; thanks to electric vehicles (EV’s). And even though the industry has already made an impact with state-of-the-art EVs, there is still scope for more innovation in this promising and rewarding sector.
The ABCs Of Electric Vehicle
An EV or electric vehicle runs on electric power instead of non-renewable sources of energy like fossil fuel. They are valued for the positive impact they have on the environment. Due to negligible emissions, they have become increasingly popular globally. Based on data published in Statista, the Electric vehicles market is expected to grow to US $19.06bn in 2023, with an incremental growth of 14% expected by 2027.
What Makes Electric Vehicles The Transport Of The Future
Unlike normal combustible engine motors, the emission released by an electric vehicle is negligible. Even when you choose a hybrid model, the emissions are considerably less than in normal cars. Furthermore, with more and more government incentives towards the manufacturing of electric vehicles, organisations feel encouraged to innovate.
Significant Cost Benefits
Having an electric vehicle is more than just having a fancy nice-to-have mode of transport, ticking the green sustainable box. Electric vehicles offer multi-fold cost benefits, which include fuel efficiency and maintenance efficiency, both of which can save money in the long-term.
An electric vehicle has simple controls and basic functioning. This includes a simple accelerator, a brake and steering mechanism. It ensures that almost anybody and everybody can drive without any stress. Additionally, it is also noise-free, which reduces noise-related disturbances during driving.
- Improved Convenience
Electric vehicles are extremely convenient to use, considering they charge quickly and last a considerable amount of time. Additionally, they can be charged at home, without standing in long queues at petrol pumps.
