Need for Electric Cars - an electric car (battery powered car) is a plug-in automobile that is propelled by one or more electric motors, using energy that is being stored in their rechargeable batteries. Increasing oil prices and the need to reduce greenhouse gases are the two major concerns that has resulted the scientists to move their invention towards electric powered vehicles, that results in zero emission and zero need of fossil fuels. Number of nations has started establishing tax credits, subsidies and other incentives in-order to promote the introduction and adoption of the electric vehicles. These offers often depend up on battery size, their travel range and the on-road price of the car. The maximum tax credit at present, allowed by
the US Government is US$7,500 per car. Compared with internal combustion or fossil fuel powered engine vehicles, electric cars are much quieter and have no exhaust gases resulting in lower emissions. Charging an electric car can be done using charging stations. These charging stations can be installed in both houses and public areas. The two bestselling electric cars, the Nissan Leaf and the Tesla Model S, have EPA-rated ranges reaching up to 151 mi (243 km) and 335 mi (539 km) respectively.
