For a long time, electric cars were an inconvenient niche product for oddball ecologists. But with ever extending range
, the emergence of plug-in hybrids and an increasingly dense network of charging points
, e-vehicles are slowly competing with combustion-based vehicles.
As this chart shows, there are currently only three million e-vehicles on the streets around the globe, but the current growth rates are immense. With big manufacturers jumping on the electrified bandwagon and e-car champion Tesla guiding the whole development, its seems to be only a matter of time until combustion engines
are an outdated niche products for coal rolling oddballs.
