Yes, this is one of the most trending topic when it comes to electric vehicles. We all know sooner or later we will be running out of fossil fuels as they’re limited sources of energy. So the only reliable option left is electricity. But there was a time when electric vehicles looked like these, and probably as fast as bicycles with very short range.
At that point of time, the world never would have thought that these were the next generation breeds. Constant research and innovations were carried out throughout and maximum efforts were made to pull the capabilities of electric vehicles near to gasoline vehicles. No one was ready to sacrifice the performance of vehicle for the sake of environmental benefits for obvious reasons. And after all these efforts this is what current generation electric vehicles looks like.
The above displayed car is Tesla SP100D, which I’ve talked about in previous articles. The superbike is Lighting LS-218, happens to be the worlds fastest superbike. The good thing about electric vehicle is that we have less components compared to traditional vehicles and hence we can achieve the best power to weight ratio. So here we can conclude that at this point, we have reached the pinnacle of electric vehicles, and more revolutionary technology is lining up.
But then the question arises, if the entire automobile world shifts towards electric power. From where to generate this amount of electricity to fulfil the requirements?
Currently we have Thermal, Nuclear, Solar, Wind, Sea, etc sources to generate electricity, which produces adequate amount of electricity. But the implementation of electric vehicles will raise the bar of required electricity so high that it will be very difficult to cope up with. Also by generating electricity we’re somehow somewhere polluting the planet.
So yes efforts have been made to make electric vehicles fast, reliable, and better in every aspect than compared to IC engines. But now we need to work on generation of clean electricity with least pollution and maximum output to feed each and every requirement.
