The history of electric vehicles actually goes back to the end of the 1800s. However, electric vehicles have been overshadowed by internal combustion engine vehicles due to reasons such as the cost of electric vehicles 3 times more expensive than other vehicles, the need to travel long distances with the construction of new highways, the inability to refuel quickly and to reach higher speeds compared to other vehicles. The main development of electric vehicles has been with new battery technologies after 1990. Especially in the last 10 years, electric cars have come into our lives again. Today, almost all brands have an electric vehicle model.

In countries such as China, the United States and Norway, the use of electric vehicles is supported with government incentives. Turkey in the first 9 months of 2020 261 electric cars, hybrid cars were sold 11 thousand 750 units. It was reported that electric car sales increased 103.9 percent compared to the same period last year.
How Does It Affect Carbon Emissions?
Electric vehicles mark the century as the only means of transportation that can prevent environmental pollution due to exhaust gas emissions compared to cars that run on internal combustion engines. Electric vehicles do not emit gas with their system to prevent air pollution, nor cause a valuable and healthy mineral wealth such as petrol to turn into a poison by turning into gasoline and diesel.
