Great question! A recent report predicts that at the current rate, [electric cars] (https://getjerry.com/tag/electric-vehicles) will outnumber gas-powered cars by 2040!
That’s not the near future but for such a recent invention, it’s pretty soon.
Keep in mind that this is just an approximation and there are many different variables involved such as government policies, manufacture and innovation rates, and buying decisions.
Though gas-powered vehicles are worse for the environment, they still outlast the driving range in comparison to battery-powered vehicles. Automobile companies are in the process of designing stronger, longer-lasting batteries to combat this.
The report goes on to claim that government climate change policy serves as a great incentive for drivers to go electric. For example, Norway, the leading country in EVs per person changed its infrastructure has changed in order to accommodate and encourage a complete shift towards EVs by 2025.
Tesla even launched its pilot for supercharging stations access for non-Tesla EVs in the northern European nation.
With its increased charging station availability and other incentives such as toll exemptions, and parking price reductions Norway is showing the world how to go electric.
