Flying cars may not have taken over the skies as predicted in Back To The Future II but one particular automobile has grown exponentially (in strength and technology) over the last few decades – the Electric Vehicles (EV). Battery-operated automobiles have been around since the 19th century but it was only in 2017 that EV became truly mainstream thanks to tech innovation, a need for renewable energy, and the introduction of ‘cheaper’ models. Though fully electric vehicles currently only make up 2% of the global market , data from Bloomberg New Energy Finance (along with the right policies in place – of course) has suggested that electric cars will be cheaper than their petroleum counterparts by 2025.
When buying a car, the most important factor to consider is safety. Thankfully, there are many features available in modern cars to help ensure the safety of yourself and others when on the road. Regulating bodies such as ANCAP Safety conduct testing and provide consumers with safety ratings for various vehicles.
