Some of the biggest changes that ever took place in the auto industry are happening right now, affecting not only the cars, but the very fabric of the cities in which we live. Governments across the world are committing to change the way we move, and EVs are at the center of this change. Today, most of the cars powered by engine or battery are not truly smart vehicles.
