Businesses all over the world are becoming more and more ecofriendly. One of the sectors responsible for disrupting the environment is the automobile sector. Not only does it affect the environment in the manufacturing process but more vehicles on the road mean more fuel emissions. However with the introduction of Tesla cars in the market few years back, automobile brands were put on notice. They knew that if they want to succeed in the current world that is focusing heavily on environmental friendly aspects of everything, then they had to go electric as well. The increase in popularity of Tesla cars in the last few years is another indication to why car manufactures should go electric.
