You can always see cars and trucks on the road. It is well known that vehicles are popular means of transportation and remain one of the leading causes of air pollution. Moreover, due to the significant inclination in the number of vehicles at an alarming rate as a consequence of urbanization that further delivers ozone, particulate matter like soot, nitrogen oxides, sulphur dioxide as well as carbon emissions like CO, CO2, thus, in turn, are the sources for reduced air quality index (AQI), global warming, smog and acid rains.

Individuals exposed to such pollution undergo symptoms like cough, headache, nausea, eye irritation, various bronchial and visibility problems. Replacing Internal Combustion Engine Vehicles (ICEVs) with green energy, that provides the highest environmental benefits from the power generated by solar, wind, geothermal, biogas, biomass sources according to Environment Protection Agency (EPA) is the best suitable solution to clean energy-efficient vehicles for future transportation needs.

Electric cars are essential to society because they represent a step-change in current technology. EVs will contribute towards reducing humanity’s impact on the planet while at the same time, securing the future of private motoring. If motoring costs go lower, it could lead to substantial improvements in quality of life.

Evidence of climate change: The most compelling climate change evidence scientists have of climate change is long term data relating atmospheric CO2 levels and global temperature, sea level, the expanse of ice, the fossil record and the distribution of species.

This data, which goes back millions of years, shows a strong correlation between CO2 levels and temperature. Recent data shows a trend of increasing temperature and rising CO2 levels beginning in the early 19th century.

Because all parts of the global climate are connected, scientists have been able to create models of how changes caused by heating should work their way through the entire system and appear in different areas, for example, sea level, intemperate weather, the movement of fish species in the ocean.

Climate Change Evidence: Increasing Tornadoes

Worsening Droughts

Rising Sea Levels

Super cell storm

Flooding

Melting Glaciers


Malaysia should import electric cars from China for sale. Or China's Zhejiang Geely Holding Group Co Ltd which is holding 49.9% share of Proton Holdings, should make electric cars in Malaysia. These are Geely’s electric cars: 

Among all the Geely’s cars, I consider this Geometry EX3 is the best car for Malaysians.

Geely is hardly a household name outside of China, but the company likes to fly a bit under the radar. It owns Volvo Cars, Polestar, Lynk & Co, and the London Taxi Cab Company. In China, its domestic brand is called Geometry. Recently, it introduced the EX3, a 4-meter-long electric SUV that comes with a 37.2 kWh battery, a range of 322 km NEDC, and room for 5.

In base trim, it sells for 59,700 RMB or €7,900 or $9,200. It comes with a 70 kW motor with 180 Nm of torque. It also has regenerative braking, a liquid-cooled battery pack, a digital instrument screen, a moderately sized touchscreen, and high-strength steel beams front and rear.

It has a travelling range of 322 km with one single charge and you can charge it at home while you sleep.

EV technology will only get better! Dont be surprise EV will have 1k km range in a decade! Humanity need to shift to EV to prevent our climate to cross point of no return!
However, for Malaysia, public transportation should be on high priority! All lawmakers need to sitdown and form common ground for HSR to take off! It should not be political gamble for any side! HSR can eradicate huge pile of COs from been release!
Government of the day must now push for fast shift into EV not only because of climate concerns but also to reduce fuel subiside!

Don't waste your money on EV at the moment. If you got plenty of money go ahead and play with your new toy. For most Malaysian, the lift-off for EV has yet to start. If the government is serious to transition to EV, it must subsidise the purchase of EV. Just giving tax incentives would not work. The lack of charging stations or rather a speedy charge one will piss off buyers too. Compounded by the present government lacking financial funds and with a deficit budget will not have any intention to encourage the move towards EV. Also, the importation of CBU cars is multi-billion bumiputra exclusivity to mint more money from import permits given free from the government. How much will franchise parties lose out from liberal import incentive?

Boy oh boy not so cheap EV is smallish and has range anxiety, low top speed and long charging time. Only a solid-state battery will solve all problems.

Alenac! BYD is coming up very soon! Selling price at 150k! The cheapest so far! However, Hyundai Ioniq has been really impressive so far! Unfortunately, already sold out! Even sold out for next year as well! So no chance of getting them even if you have the money! Frankly, almost all EV brands offered were sold out! It's not issue of lack of buyers, rather lack of supply at the moment!

Qqq! Let's hope this will true to reality soon! EV is much better alternative! But for Malaysia, i hope HSR will become reality! HSR certainly better than EV, personally!

Hope to see where we don't even need to own a car! If we need a ride, just hail an EV pod! And the fare so cheap, even banglas can ride all the way to Bangladesh!
Joke aside, having our own car is actually a huge waste of resources! I mean, how many of us have cars just lying idle in the parking lot dong nothing! Heck, i rare drive myself! I usually walk to nearest kopitiam every morning, an of course que to buy my favorite 4D numbers! Only my wifey used our cars! I have Honda Civic and Isuzu Dmax which i rarely drive! To be honest, the driver in my household is my wifey! She do all the driving and usually i just side on the passenger side! So i am more than comfortable to hail Grab or whatever if i need a ride!

Climate change is a big scam. Like the Covid19 (experimental) vaccination. All are scams. Only want your money. Likewise for EV. We don't need it at all in Malaysia. We have unlimited cheap petroleum and gas to use for our engine-powered-vechicles. Don't need to be scammed and dance with those scammers. Scammers are everywhere.

Engine-powered and hybrid vehicles are always stand still. Not EV. Go to install/build far more charging stations lah before talking its future.
