Electric vehicles (EV) are becoming increasingly popular and desirable as the world strives to combat climate change with governments offering incentives to those who join the movement. EVs produce zero emissions, which is a great improvement over combustion engines that pollute our air. The technological advances in the industry have made EVs become easier to use and have provided us with more options.
