The future of automotive engineering lies in electric vehicles (EV). Auto experts are speculating that in the coming decade, there will be a mass transition from fossil-fuel based automobiles to electric cars, thanks to the considerable price drop and consciousness about the environment. Moreover, these cars have a low maintenance cost, safer to drive, and durable.
