The move towards cleaner car engines has resulted in many opportunities for the development of related industries focused on solving problems that emerge. The distribution network of charging stations is becoming a key aspect of many traditional fuel stations in towns and cities.

One of the issues that remains is that electric cars are too quiet at low speeds: if pedestrians can’t hear a car approaching, this could lead to accidents.
