Electric car - a car consisting of one or more electric motors. The first practical electric car was produced in the 1880s. Although electric cars were popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the development of internal combustion engines and the production of low-cost gasoline produced led to a decline in the use of electric cars.
The development of batteries since 2008, concerns about rising oil prices and the desire to reduce emissions have created a new wave in the production of electric cars. Country and local governments have begun to introduce soft loans, tax breaks, etc., to increase the cost of electric vehicles.
Electric cars make less noise than cars with internal combustion engines. Electric cars, which are the main source of oil in the country, will lead to a reduction in oil imports.
One of the main problems of electric cars is the long-term re-supply of electric power. The high cost of batteries makes electric cars more expensive than other cars, but there is currently a decline in battery prices. In addition, people are afraid that the battery will be completely depleted by the time they move into the next apartment.
As of December 2015, there are more than 30 electric car models. As of September 2016, global sales of electric vehicles exceeded 1 million units.
