The future of Electric cars and trucks

As we stand at the brink of a new era in automotive technology, we will tap into the ongoing evolution highlighting the potential impact and growth prospects of EVs in the coming years. The industry has been gradually shifting its focus from internal combustion engines to electric power, this transition is driven by a combination of environmental concerns and technological advancements as well as regulatory incentives worldwide. The International Energy Agency states that the global EV fleet including cars and trucks exceeded 10 million in 2020, marking an impressive 43% increase from the previous year.

One of the key factors propelling the EV revolution is the significant advancements in battery technology, The development of solid-state batteries is a game changer as they offer increased energy density and safety, reduced charging time and lower costs. More over with tech giants like Tesla investing in building their own battery manufacturing facilities the future seems promising.

Electric cars have been making headlines, and the trucks are not far behind, major auto manufactures like Tesla, Rivian and Ford are investing heavily in electric pickup trucks. These trucks are boasting superior torque and reduced operating cost and are poised to revolutionize the freight industry. To be honest tho, I live in a cold climate half the year and I am not too sure how much I would trust having to rely on a battery operated truck in -50c with a 10 hour drive down an ice road or in the middle of the woods. I believe there is a place for Electric trucks, but I also strongly believe there is a still going to be a need for gas and diesel vehicles for climates and locations that are not so forgiving.

The government polices play a critical role in the adoption of EVs, many country’s are implementing stringent emission standards and offering incentives to encourage Ev purchases. The introduction of zero-emission vehicle mandates and subsidies for installing charging infrastructure are also contributing to the EV surge.

Let me know your thoughts on the electric vehicle movement, are you for it? Against it? Id love to know!

Enhance your ride in style

A few ways to achieve this goal is by accessories, such as performance upgrades, exterior and interior accessories... lets break these down a little..
Performance upgrades : 
When it comes to enhancing your vehicles performance there is a multitude of accessories available from upgrading your exhaust system to installing a cold air intake. you can boost its horse power and have better fuel economy and increase power just by those 2 additions. Chipping is also another option a lot of people opt for which along with tuners will unlock your rides full potential.

Exterior accessories: is the first thing that catches the eye and adding accessories can make a lasting impression. Spoilers, side skirts, body kits , grills etc not only make your ride look sick and stand out from the crowd, it can also enhance the aerodynamics. Upgrading your wheels and tires can also transform the look of your vehicle and improve handling if done properly.

Interior accessories is more for your, as this is where you will be most of the time, set the mood and feel of your ride from installing custom seat covers to upgrading your audio system with high quality speakers, amps and subs. I personally have blown 3 separate 10 inch subs and have had to upgrade to 12 inch subs and a stronger amp. ( It helps drowning out the sound of fighting teen girls!!) I also like having air fresheners in my trucks and prefer the NOS bottle air fresheners, the scents are customizable based on what ever i am in the mood for and is esthetically pleasing. ( the old tree ones got boring).. You can put led string lights all through your ride, some are programable to move to the music while others offer a light glow along the inside trim and dash making it a soothing place to chill.

There are so many options out there, and with this website I will be adding more and more products and trying to get on with other brands to bring you the quality and style your are looking for to make your ride sick!
