The US and other developed countries are working to transition from the internal combustion engine to all electric clean car technology. The electric car does have a long history that is greatly unknown, but it has failed to evolve over time. With the current legislation and increased awareness on global warming, there is a push to go electric that has sparked a revolution. This is an important distinction as it will impact us all.

However, there are serious challenges that face the electric car revolution. Those challenges include, but are not limited to, material procurement, national defense, infrastructure, cost, and adoption. This paper will summarize the history of the electric car, where and how it is already been implemented, and make a comparison of the driving factors behind the production of the electric car in the past to today. The focus of the paper will be to analyze those challenges facing the rapid transition to clean car technology and the resolutions that are being implemented.

In conclusion, the electric car revolution is eminent and will impact us all. The challenges facing it will have to be resolved. This paper will provide an analysis through research of those challenges and provide insight into how they are being addressed.
