Electric Vehicles (EV) offer many benefits over their gas-powered counterparts, but their market appeal is currently tempered by their higher cost and new safety concerns. Charging, safety, and environmental standards are changing the electric vehicle industry, but there is as of now no unifying, global standard to guide the market. This could mean that EV manufacturing centers would have to make different vehicle models based on the market’s country regulations, ultimately raising the cost of production. An EV tested and certified through one regulatory body still does not mean that your product has been automatically approved by another. Creating a uniform, global safety standard and bringing EVs within this standard will improve the pace of adoption.
