In addition, these electric cars are only suitable for short travels as they needed to be charged every now and then. Necar 4 is an electric car that runs using the most abundant form of energy on earth which is hydrogen. This means that as long as we have water, this type of car can be used. Iceland is one country that is currently in the process of adapting this technology. It’s the perfect cost-effective solution for a country that has abundant reserves of free-flowing water.
