However, it appears that these two companies aren't the only ones trying to get in on the electric car market; it was recently reported that Hyundai Heavy and Magna-E Car Systems have come together under an agreement to develop next-gen lithium ion batteries. Their goals reach far and wide, as Hyundai hopes to have 30% of the electric car market in Europe and North America at some point or another.

With this many car-makers trying to make their way into the electric car industry, this is the perfect time to invest in electric vehicles. As more and more automobile companies try to enter this arena of electricity, more and more competition will arise between car-makers, leading to better vehicles as time goes on. Essentially, investing in electric vehicles now would be perfect because they're share of the automobile world is about to grow exponentially.

Of course, one of the other big reasons to get an electric car at this time is because of the world's quickly declining environment and resource. This topic really doesn't need much explanation at this point; if we don't start adopting new forms of energy for our vehicles, we will soon find ourselves without vehicles in general. As we run out of fossil fuels, we run out of oil and gasoline, and when those are gone, current cars will be virtually useless. We need to begin adopting non-gasoline powered cars as soon as possible, because if we don't, we'll find ourselves without any cars at all.

For those of us that aren't quite ready to buy an electric car, this might be a good time to think about finding a new job in the electric automobile industry. It is not that hard to go through electric car training at one of hundreds of electric car training institutes. You could potentially do some electric car conversion training and receive electric car conversion certification. Electric car training in general is not usually too difficult, and electric car conversion training isn't a terribly hard thing to do either. All the training you could ever need in order to enter the electric car industry can be done at an electric car training institute. And of course, electric car conversion certification is considered a very nice thing to have under your belt. As more and more companies attempt to enter the industry and competition increases, more and more job openings will appear in major car companies. These companies need people with innovative ideas for the future of electric cars, or even people with general engineering skills to help build these new cars. Any of these jobs would be extremely interesting, as a job like this would essentially make a person a pioneer, a person that would be able to say that they were one of the first to invest their abilities in the electric car movement. You would be working with ideas and vehicles that no one has ever worked with before. And there's not many people in the world that can say that.

Whether it's buying an electric car or finding a job in the industry, now is the perfect time to invest in this new generation of automobiles.
