The future and importance of the electric car industry

 The electric vehicle industry has come a long way globally to take centre stage, removing vehicles based on internal combustion engines from the top it has held for decades since the beginning of the automotive era.

Many international brands have announced a shift to only electric and hybrid vehicle producers, while others have announced the production of electric vehicles as internal combustion vehicles such as Toyota and BMW continue to be produced.

This follows the EU's 27-nation decision to ban the sale and production of new vehicles with petrol and diesel internal combustion engines by 2035, replacing them with environmentally friendly electricity engines and other clean energy devices.

The new agreement stipulates that the sale of new cars with combustion engines of all kinds will be banned and halted. In addition, prior to the date of the ban, automakers will have to reduce CO2 emissions by 55% for large cars and trucks by the end of this decade.

The future and importance of the electric car industry

Some EU countries have objected to the implementation mechanism of the resolution, most notably Germany, which is Europe's largest producer of cars, as well as the presence of the most popular major brands on its soil, such as Mercedes, BMW, Volkswagen, Audi and Opel, as agreed by Italy, which is one of the most productive in Europe, such as Ferrari, Lamborini and Fatty.

High sales of electric vehicles:

Electric vehicle sales continue to rise strongly through 2022, with 2 million electric vehicles sold worldwide in the first quarter, up three quarters from the same period a year earlier, and the number of electric vehicles on the world's roads by the end of the 2021 year was about 16.5 million, triple the number recorded in 2018.

China came out on top, with electric vehicle sales almost tripling in 2021 to 3.3 million, accounting for about half of the global total.

The advantages of electric vehicles and their importance in the face of global warming:

Electric cars are environmentally friendly compared to fuel and diesel cars, as they do not issue any environmentally damaging emissions or greenhouse gases such as CO2 and other chemicals.

These gases and emissions are among the greatest threats to the erosion of the ozone layer, increasing global warming problems and increasing the Earth's temperature. In the following context, we review the main features of electric vehicles:

  • Electric cars rely on a battery to power their engine that is charged with electricity, does not burn any fuel internally, and they also require less polluting liquids such as engine oil and other refrigerated liquids, as a result of which they do not emit any polluting emissions or gases for the atmosphere related to the global warming phenomenon.
  • Getting rid of an electric vehicle battery when its life span ends is less polluting to the environment, compared to a normal car battery powered by an internal combustion engine.
  • Electric car battery relies on electricity by charging it through its own power grid. Electricity is a clean energy medium, and its global price is cheaper than gasoline.
  • The main goal for which electric vehicles have been developed is to reduce the proportion of car exhaust, as well as to reduce auditory pollution, due to the extreme calm of electric vehicle engines.
  • Electric cars have little need for maintenance, as they simply know the quality of their internal components, and mastery in the industry makes their going to maintenance workshops a rare condition.
  • Low energy consumption. Electric cars are energy efficient compared to cars powered by internal combustion engines. The "mpg" rate of consumption is always the preference for electric vehicles.
  • The capacity of batteries used in electric vehicles and the proliferation of fast electric charging points has evolved globally compared to previously, as drivers have always complained about the short distance that an electric car can have due to the small battery capacity and the lack of sufficient charging points.
