Electric Vehicles: The Wave of the Future?


Countries such as Norway, Iceland, and Sweden have taken the lead in the international marketplace as it relates to electric vehicle (EV) adoption. At the forefront of this revolution, Norway boasts a 49% acceptance and usage rate amongst its citizens.

Other countries such as the USA have been attempting to replicate these results, however at ~ 1% adoption they still have among way to go.

The reality is that the transportation sector makes up the principle amount of emissions released into the atmosphere.  To this note, government law makers are implementing policies in order to progress the development and adoption of this industry.

  • Less pollution – EV vehicles release 0 emissions. Not only with this benefit the environment as a whole, but the air in our cities will be cleaner to breath if EV adoption rates increased.
  • Environmentally friendly materials – Many of the EV’s in production today are making use of recycled materials to incorporate into the productions process.
  • Renewable energy – As an EV owner, you will be able to decide where your energy comes from. In many cases PV solar panels are built into EV charging stations.
