It’s very difficult to discern exactly what the future holds for the power source for cars.
The way things are currently heading, it seems most likely that hybrid cars will dominate the foreseeable future – with the battery technology improving continually as the electrical component gradually takes over more of the power source from the petrol or diesel.
But this is by no means certain. There are many other competing technologies that could yet gain the upper hand.
All-electric cars remain slightly problematic due to their still relatively limited ranges – though this is improving continually as is the length of time needed to fully recharge the batteries. Nevertheless, it seems likely that the hybrid versions will dominate for the time being – judging by the concept cars being introduced around the globe by the world’s major manufacturers.
