When Will Diesel Cars Become Obsolete?

Anyone who watches the news or reads articles on the Internet will be aware that there are an increasing number of electric cars on the road in the NY area near me. From high-end models to smaller and cheaper alternatives electric vehicles are becoming increasingly popular. In fact, some industry experts maintain that both diesel and petrol cars will simply not be on our roads by 2025.

The knock on effects of this across the globe will be almost impossible to calculate. However, at the very least people and countries are going to be faced with the possibility that the petroleum industry will become a relic of the past.

A Stanford University academic has made this prediction in a very recent report. Needless to say, this is causing many in the petroleum industry some sleepless nights. On the flip side of the coin, the news has been greeted with absolute delight by many Green activists.

In fact, the prediction is that not only will diesel cars and their petrol counterparts disappear but that driving itself might be consigned to the dustbin of history. Self-driving electric cars might just be what we will all be enjoying within a decade.

This is a radical change in the way the world works and looks at the moment. For one thing, recent studies have theorized that within this time frame electric cars will be produced that are up to 10 times more cost efficient to run than the traditionally powered cars that are responsible for the gridlock in today’s major cities.

It seems almost inevitable that we are looking at a future of clean energy and a much healthier environment. This is good news for every single human being on the planet – except those who work in the petroleum industry. For those professionals, the future might not be as rosy.
