In the early 2000s, most people doubted that electric vehicles (EVs) would do it

However, despite the remarkable growth of the EV industry over the past decade, there is still a
The debate continues as to whether they are superior to internal combustion engine vehicles (ICEVs).
Both EVs and ICEVs have pros and cons, and there is a lot to choose from
