An electric vehicle can be powered through the collectorsystem by the electricity from the off-vehicle sources, or it can be self-contained with thebattery or with the generator so as to convert the fuel to electricity. Electric Vehicles also

An electric vehicle may bepowered through a collector system by electricity from off-vehicle sources, ormay be self-contained with a battery or generator to convert fuel to electricity.EVs include road and rail vehicles, surface and underwater vessels, electricaircraft and electric spacecraft. EVs first came into existence in the mid-19thcentury, when electricity was among the preferred methods for motor vehiclepropulsion, providing a level of comfort and ease of operation that could not beachieved by the gasoline cars of the time. The internal combustion engine (ICE)has been the dominant propulsion method for motor vehicles for almost 100years, but electric power has remained commonplace in other vehicle types,such as trains and smaller vehicles of all types (Dhameja, 2002).Media can have direct influence on the electric vehicle by either promoting itsuse, that is, addressing the advantages of the vehicle or the media can brings out thedisadvantages that can arise due to the usage of the electric vehicle. Some of theadvantages that the media can bring to limelight include the environmental importanceof the electric vehicle, that is because the Electric Vehicles releases no tail pipe airpollutants to the environment whenever they are operating. The Electric vehicles alsogenerate less noise pollution compared to the internal combustion engine vehicleswhether they are at rest or they are in motion. The energy that the electric vehicle aswell as the hybrid cars always consumes are always generated by the means that
