Most people are unaware of the fact that electric cars have been around for years. These cars have not been popular, especially because we are most aware of fuel-run vehicles, and would most likely prefer to use them instead of using another type. It’s all about being familiar with how to operate it, instead of how good it might actually be to try electric cars.
Now that there is a need to conserve energy, it would be a good idea to use electric cars instead of fuel-run vehicles. Here are the top ten electric cars that are to be released in the future:
1.2014 Chevrolet Spark EV

The Spark EV would be available in the US, Canada, South Korea and Europe.

The electric range might be disadvantageous though, as it runs at around 35 miles.
