  • EVs are gaining more interest amid high fuel prices.
  • Electric vehicles are considered to be more economical and cause significantly less pollution.

With fuel prices soaring, electric vehicles or EVs are proving to be an effective alternative mode of transportation. The rise of petrol and diesel prices skyrocketed when global oil prices reached record highs due to the Russia-Ukraine conflict. However, despite the prices coming down in recent months, fuel prices didn't decrease as many retailers did not pass on the cuts to the customers. The high prices are forcing people to look for alternatives.

Today, citizens are contemplating switching to electric vehicles as they are more economical to drive than internal combustion engines. Besides, they cause significantly less damage to the environment due to fewer emissions.

Seeing the rising interest, manufacturers are also raising their focus on EVs.

However, while there are benefits to shifting to EVs, it doesn't mean there aren't any challenges. Like petrol and diesel, energy prices have also been rising. This means that charging an EV will also get expensive, though it may still be cheaper than fuel-powered vehicles. Besides, concerns have been raised that the successful shift to electric vehicles may put thousands of jobs at risk because EVs are less complicated to engineer than internal combustion engines. 

Amid the rising interest in EVs, investors can explore the following EV-related stocks listed on the London Stock Exchange.
