The Rise of the Electric Vehicle

As the electric vehicle sector continues to grow, so do the options for consumers. More and more automakers are now offering mild-hybrid, plugin-hybrid, and fully electric vehicles, and there is an increasing variety of models to choose from.


Here are some of the latest developments in the electric vehicle sector:


Automakers are expanding their electric vehicle offerings.

More and more automakers are entering the electric vehicle market, and they are offering a wider variety of models. From hybrid sports cars to electric seven-seaters, this means that there are now more choices for consumers when it comes to choosing an electric vehicle.


Electric vehicles have a growing range.

The range of electric vehicles is also increasing, as the technology continues to develop. What this means is that ‘range anxiety’ is fast becoming a thing of the past. We’re now seeing vehicles with ranges that far outperform the range of the early vehicles that gave EVs their bad rep. This is possible because as battery chemistry and management improve, more energy-dense cells, which offer greater ranges, are now able to offer twice the range whilst taking up the same amount of space as older batteries.


Electric vehicles are becoming more affordable.

As the technology behind electric vehicles continues to improve, the price of these vehicles is dropping. This means that more people than ever before can afford to switch to an electric vehicle. This increase in popularity has allowed automakers to scale up the production of electric vehicles, and their components creating an economy of scale on par with combustion-engined vehicles. All this is in addition to the drastically lower running costs an electric vehicle offers over combustion-engined vehicles.


Electric vehicle charging infrastructure is improving.

One of the biggest challenges facing electric vehicles is the lack of charging infrastructure. However, this is slowly starting to change, with more and more charging stations being built every year. Greenpoint Services has been on hand to help businesses, fleet managers and consumers to make that all-important switch to electric vehicles to reduce their CO2 emissions.


Predictions state that this summer the number of electric vehicles will put a strain on existing charging stations, however, with government backing and an increase in consumer knowledge, this is said to improve dramatically over the next year.


Electric vehicles are becoming more popular.

As electric vehicles become more affordable and the charging infrastructure improves, more and more people are making the switch to electric vehicles. In fact, sales of electric vehicles are growing at a faster rate than sales of traditional gasoline-powered vehicles.

So, if you're considering making the switch to an electric vehicle, now is a great time to do it. With more choices than ever before, there's an electric vehicle out there that's perfect for you.
