  1. Electric vehicles
  2. Autonomous cars
  3. Convertible cabs
  4. Delivery drones
  5. Commercial space vehicles
  6. Hyperloop
  7. Maglev

Electric Vehicles

Conversion from a gasoline vehicle to an electric one was a challenge a couple of years ago – but not now. The technological advancements in the field have simplified this and now almost all the automobile companies sport an electric vehicle.

Who’s on Market – GMC Hummer EV, Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo, Jaguar I-Pace, Audi e-tron GT, Ford F-150 Lightning
