Technology helps spur green energyWhile some new electric choices in vehicles have been prompted by a need to lower carbon emissions, many vehicles on today's market are also a product of technological progress.
“Early adopters of PEVs [plug-in electric vehicles] worldwide tend to be tech-savvy and more affluent than the average vehicle purchaser - a combination that will help grow interest in the more advanced connected vehicle telematics packages,” senior analyst Dave Hurst said in a recent statement. “Additionally, many automobile manufacturers are recognizing that including connected vehicle telematics in the early years of PEV retailing helps consumers recognize the value of the vehicle.
The trend of technologically-advanced electric vehicles will only continue to grow. According to Pike Research, nearly 80 percent of electric vehicles scheduled to be produced by 2017 will be equipped with advanced telematics systems that provides the driver with information on nearby emergency services or charging locations as well as real-time vehicle diagnostics.
Fast car-charging stations - those that can fully charge a car in half an hour - are becoming more prevalent as well, giving individuals a better range to which they can expect their vehicle to travel.
