Did you know that electric cars actually isn’t a new concept? In 1884, English engineer Thomas Parker built the electric car in Wolverhampton. The vehicle is capable of carrying three men and it also has electric lights. Throughout the years, we see popular car brands such as Nissan and Volvo coming up with their own electric vehicles. Tesla, arguably the most famous electric car manufacture, is releasing electric cars that greatly surpassed the limitations of regular gasoline vehicles. So why is the car industry shifting from gasoline to electricity? One main reason is that it removes the carbon dioxide emissions. In this research project, I’m looking forward to learning about the benefits of electric cars and how they will revolutionize our transportation system in the near future.
