Best electric cars. It’s time Nigerians begin to patronize at the electric car market because the market is expanding so fast that soon people will no longer be able to ignore this new technology. Although Nigerians are gradually begin to embrace the hybrid cars, electric car is the car for the future and please don’t  say Nigeria’s epileptic power supply will make the car useless, truth is these cars come with fast charge and depending on the battery size can give you full charge in 5 hours or less.

With Tesla leading the way, other car manufacturers have joined the race for production of electric cars and the good news is, they are becoming more affordable and even cheaper than some of the petrol cars we see on the roads everyday.
