Electric cars evolved in 8 years
If eight years ago electric cars were just a mirage, in the middle of 2020 we have more and more of these vehicles on the road. The automotive segment is changing rapidly and, finally, we see manufacturers concerned with following this revolution.
However, electric cars are still not the best option for all drivers. Although they are more “environmentally friendly” and have avant-garde characteristics, the limitations are evident. Especially in the charging time of a battery and the kilometers they can do with just one charge.
