It is said that electric cars are the future of automobiles. Automakers are rapidly working on EV technology while most governments have already passed laws to ban internal combustion engines after few years.
Global electric vehicles (EV) sales created a record high in December 2017 with more than 170,000 vehicles delivered, and the figure surged 67% compared to the same period in 2016, according to EV Sales.
