When will we refer to EVs simply as ‘cars'?


Electric cars are expected to be the vehicle norm by 2030. — AFP Relaxnews

As mobile phones became necessities rather than spendy novelties, the devices were no longer specified as revolutionary "cell" phones or "mobile" phones: instead, the handsets became standard phones. So, when can we expect the same transition to happen with electric cars? Research conducted by Go Ultra Low in Britain suggests the shift will happen in just over 10 years.

According to a survey conducted with 2,000 adults in Britain by Go Ultra Low, a joint government and car industry campaign, "two thirds of consumers expect ‘electric cars' to be referred to as ‘cars' by 2030." In fact, this shift could come sooner as the people surveyed on average believed only 15 electric-power vehicles are on the market when there are 51 options – Go Ultra Low stated that that number is expected to double over the next year. – AFP Relaxnews
