Here’s a mind-boggling strange-but-true fact: the massive advancements made in the design and performance of electric vehicles (EVs) has been made possible because of petrochemicals derived from oil and natural gas – the group of products they’re designed to replace as a countermeasure to shrinking natural fuel resources!
That’s right! The cars which are being designed to replace fuel-sucking vehicles would not meet standards of efficiency and range, if it weren’t for the extensive use of petrochemicals to make the plastics and engineered polymers of a light electric car. Read about it in this in-depth infographic.
