As global warming is constantly a big concern each year, there are many ways to battle it, one of the most notable being Electric Cars. Reduced emissions instead of the “traditional” diesel and petrol cars would be a huge help. Electric cars use electric motors, which is a big battery pack that powers it, as well as the latest technology to be able to cover significant miles without the need of a charging station. Therefore, various companies plan to develop models and introduce them to markets. This put pressure on the biggest and most famous manufacturers, so everyone wants to be a part of it. Expect these 10 cars to hit the shops during 2020.
