Every year, a growing number of adherents of an electric future is becoming less believing in internal combustion engines.
Compared to the 2017 year the number ready to buy the electric car as the next car has increased by 17-20%, which shows statistics from the UK and America. And if Europe could expect such a growth, the US has always loved big cars and big engines.
In Britain there has been a strong influence on the minds of motorists, the media and government initiatives. So in Europe, sales of diesel cars in the first quarter of this year decreased by 17% in comparison with the last year period. Experts point out that this is the most significant drop in all the time.

But with rising prices of fuel and gas the situation is slightly mitigated – the cost of maintenance of electric vehicles will not be high. Because these machines do not require oil changes and have fewer parts than conventional engines.
