Knowledge is power.
The impact will be positive both on the economy as well as on the environment. Those who can afford them will purchase electric cars at present as they are quite costly now and when the prices come down the majority of the car/bike users will go for it. Just think of the mobile device we are using now and also the call cost. When those devices first arrived in our country the cost was huge and gradually with time everyone is using mobile devices now. The impact on the environment is quite encouraging as these electric vehicles will not create pollution.
One thing that should be taken care of is the disposal of e-waste and batteries as these cars will be operated on batteries and from time to time a huge number of batteries have to be disposed of. The waste can also create pollution if not properly disposed and it is hoped that with the increase in popularity of electric cars ways of disposal will also become clear. Electricity production will not be the problem as renewable energy can always be used. Moreover, if stress is given to solar energy it will reduce the cost of energy too though initially, the setting up of such units is much higher.
"Life is easier when you enjoy what you do"
Initially, Solar energy was very costly. But now it is cheaper than in the earlier days. Further production of electricity production through solar energy will increase and chances of scarcity may not be there.
A very important point with electric vehicles is that they are environmentally friendly. It helps in two ways. There will not be any greenhouse gas emissions from these vehicles. Another point is diesel and petrol consumption will come down. That will help in the reduction of prices of these fuels. That will change the cost of living.
A major problem that is to be solved is battery recharge. Battery charging shops should come more and there should be a replacement facility easily available.
