ELECTRIC CARS – Part II
The best solution to problems of environmental pollution is electric
vehicle (EV) as an alternative means of transport. Electric car is a vehicle that
uses an electric motor as a drive with electric power from a source, usually
battery. Over nearly two decades, 86 % of cars in circulation will be powered by
conventional motors. The year 2008 is the de facto beginning of the era in allelectric
vehicle range. This year she has launched various marketing concepts
battery with a relatively high yield and affordable. Thus, it is expected that by
2010-2015 an electric car can be manufactured on a large scale performance
series at a price close to the price of petrol cars. A study by University of
California at Berkeley shows that about 86 % of cars running on the streets will
be electric in 2030. The percentage is subject to the emergence of centres of
charge or change batteries developed globally so far. Automakers shift to
electric car, because, they say, is the solution to this deadlock international
profile of the industry.
