Abstract: People draw more and more attention to EVs (EV) since they are regarded as energy-efficient and environmental friendly. According to research, EV has advantages in consuming less gasoline and emitting less greenhouse gas. In the meantime, electric cars have disadvantages such as cost-inefficiency, long charging time and short travel range. In addition, LNG cars and vehicles with clean energy engines are strong competitors to EVs in marketplace. Therefore, governments and car manufactures should take measures, including cutting down the price and offering subsidies, and improving technologies with regard to charging, batteries and energy efficiency. In this way, EVs will be prosperous and become the major vehicle types in the near future.

Keywords: electric vehicle, influence on energy, power generation, environment impact, development constraints, competitors
