The working thesis, “electric cars are going to outshine fuel-driven cars in future,
however they will be faced with numerous challenges,” attempts to investigate the uncertainty of
the success of the electric car and how this uncertainty can be solved in order to achieve success.
This thesis also attempts to explain the potential of using electric cars as a means to reduce
pollution caused by gasoline-powered cars. The approach used in this work was collection of
data from existing published articles such as online articles, professional and scholarly journals.
Textbooks, newspaper, magazines and government articles can also be used in gathering

The article mainly is about the inception of electric vehicles and what lead to their
decline. The author also analyses how the shortage of gas, high oil prices and environmental
pollution led to a new beginning for electric cars. This article gives information that the electric
car has a great potential despite its unclear future.

The author gives an analysis of possible challenges electric cars may face and are facing,
before they can be fully integrated into the society. This article provides vital information that
inventors and governments may require to improve in order to make the use of electric cars
possible and more efficient. The author explains that the biggest challenge for electric cars is the
mentality of people already using combustion engines. Therefore this study proves that it is
important to allow people room to adjust and change their mentality towards electric cars.

Neville and Angela debate on various ways the government supports the development of
the electric car through law enactment, fiscal incentives and providing funds for research. The
authors argue that the future of electric cars is still uncertain due to the feeble economy and
present monetary mess vehicle manufacturers are in. The study provides important information
concerning the governments input to succeeding of electric vehicles.

The editorial board writes about the favorable outcome of Norway in integrating electric
cars. Norway’s success in assimilating the use of electric cars is a key lesson how specific
approach can assist in changing buyer behavior and encourage private-sector funding. Given by

Joe emphasizes on the efficiency of the electric car in terms of performance, maintenance
cost, fuel consumption and is environmentally friendly with less pollution and emissions. The
author lists the concerns given by critics concerning the effectiveness, accessibility of charging
infrastructure and affordability of electric cars. This suggests that some people are yet to accept
that electric cars are the future of transportation and psychology is still by the far the biggest
challenge towards succeeding of electric cars.

This thesis was used to study the feasibility of transforming a normal carport or garage
into one that can elaborately sustain electric vehicle use. From it, it is clear that electricity failure
would pose a charging problem and the use of electric cars would face opposition as electricity is
already limited. The article focuses on the challenges that electric cars are likely to face in future.
