With the arrival of 21st century many new technologies and techs have boon our ordinary lives and made our lives both more easy and enthralling. Similarly one tech that shocked the millions worldwide and  is believed to be the savior of earth was the Electronic Car which also known as electric car. The concept was introduced in 1880’s and become popular in 20th century but due to the high prices of battery and the lack of advancements and modifications in batteries, there was nearly no electronic car seen on the streets of India and abroad. But now when big companies like Audi, BMW, Renault, Nissan, Tesla etc. introduced E-Cars in 2000’s, facilities like charging ports in government parking lots and on the street parking bay were also being available for public. These steps were taken under the Green Revolution and with the rise of global warming governments decided to encourage the people to dump up their fuel cars and start using e-cars. And again government worldwide have taken step forward in this direction, and signed provision of USD 10 million for electric roads in Israel and other 9 European countries. The technology is successfully tested and passed in France.  These roads will work with coils buried in the road which will generate magnetic fields, when an EV-Electric Vehicle passes over a field, an electric current will be induced in the secondary coil. The ‘DEVC’ (dynamic electric vehicle charging) introduced by US chipmaker Qualcomm could charge two vehicles on the same track embedded with the charging tech at up to 20kW while moving at high speed. Cars with wireless charging are hitting the market in 2017 and 2018 worldwide and with the proposal of Indian government to stop the further production of fuel cars maybe after a year or two these cars can be introduced in India too. But this project is highly expensive and  very time consuming too and hence some critics brought up several points that can hinder the DEVC tech like, - one lane would have to be reserved for vehicles with on-road charging facilities, sensors would have to be able to detect a non-chargeable car travelling on road or any mishap can happen, the big question that remains is how the E-Cars will pay for this service, would vehicles then need to have instant payment systems installed?, miles and miles of road would have to torn up to install cables and many more. But for the betterment of society and to save the environment this step should be taken, also according to reports approximately 2 million electric vehicles were added to the world’s road in 2016 which means if people are taking one step further now is the time of governments of the world.
