With the adverse impact of carbon emissions, scientists has to invent alternative to the conventional mode of transportation-Diesel and petrol vehicles. As a result, the usage of electronic vehicles has gained significant momentum in the recent past. Find out how electronic vehicles impacted our usual transportation.
In 2009, in the US, transportation consumed 20% of energy produced globally resulting in 25 percent of all energy related emissions. Almost half of those emissions originated from passenger vehicles. Consequently, people started using electronic vehicles (EV). EV sales improved in 2012. While 62,400 Evs sold in 2012, 18,000 vehicles sold in 2011.
When it comes to Europe's EV consumption, France uses 2,630 Evs, followed by Germany which uses 2,154 electronic vehicle. However, the US government spends $2.4 B on developing battery technology. Additionally it provides up to $7,500 subsidy per EV purchased. On the other hand, China has invested $15 billion in EV expansion.
