21st Century has been an ever-evolving period in terms of technology so far. With climate change turning out to be an issue of grave concern, it became unavoidable to curb vehicular pollution across the globe. The approach was to come up with alternate cleaner sources of energy which would emit less carbon contents.
Though initial experimentations on electric powered vehicles can be traced all the way back to the 19th Century, the commercial ones have been made available to the consumers in the recent decades.
Among other automobile giants gradually trying to capture the Electric Vehicle market, Ford Motors have announced a list of upcoming Electric Vehicles that are all set to hit the market floors in the next year or two.
