Electric cars have become very popular cars that appear on the road in the western world.  The new wave of electric cars has changed the car manufacturing industry, because of their sleek look and saving of fuel cost. In addition to environmental preservation, more people are converting to electric cars. Ethiopia has also joined the future of transportation by aligning with a Japanese electric auto manufacturing company called E-trike in electric car assembly. 

The first electric car in the world was introduced in the United States developed in 1890-91 by William Morrison of Des Moines. The vehicle was a six-passenger wagon capable of reaching a speed of 23 kilometers per hour (14 mph). In today’s modern age, the electric car concept is popularised by Elon Musk CEO of tesla. Today there are currently more than 40 different electric car models for sale in the United States alone.
