Electric cars are vehicles powered by one or more electric motors utilizing energy stored in one or more batteries.

These cars are quieter, have no exhaust emissions, and overall lower emissions. American car companies and European companies have made sure that the cost of owning an electric vehicle is now cheaper than having ICE cars that have higher maintenance and gas costs.

There are various charging stations, and these can be installed in public areas and houses. In 2019, 6.6 million electric cars were sold, and it doubled in 2020. This is where the future is and this article shares some of the most interesting quotes regarding electric cars.
