Future transportation belongs to electric vehicles and hydrogen cell engines. Some 2 decades ago, environment-friendly gas engines were advocated as the best alternative to diesel and petrol engines.
Among many other demerits, fossil fuel is a big source of greenhouse gas emissions. Being harshly consumed through the past century and through the age of industrialization, oil and gas reserves are shrinking with an estimated limit of very few more decades.
To reduce pollution and emission of greenhouse gasses, future strategists emphasize on renewable energy sources. Development of electric cars is a big step forward in this regard. Electric cars are no longer unfamiliar and even the developing nations are using them.
Big brands like Tesla, Honda, Toyota, Mitsubishi, BMW, and Daihatsu have been competing for developing competent electric cars. 2017 will see some best-ever produced electric cars. Here is a brief list of upcoming best electric cars in 2017.
