Firms aim to make electric cars readily available and affordable to the market. Ford Motor Co., General Motors Co. and Volkswagen AG are some of the many automobile companies that want to establish a market for electric vehicles in the future.

During the Consumers Electric Show last Jan.12, several prototypes and concepts of electric cars have been displayed. But General Motors Co. unveiled a finished version of its very own electric vehicle named 'Chevrolet Bolt.' The revolutionary car is intended to captivate drivers who would want to try out electric propulsion system.

The Bolt is said to be cheaper than the electric self-driving cars and will be available later this year. It will cost not more than $30,000 after tax and can travel 320 km before it runs out of juice. It also has technology and features that can be found from competitors such as Wi-Fi access for apps and services connected with the vehicle.

But the more notable electric car in terms of design was from the Faraday Future, a California startup company. It displayed the FFZERO1 concept car that looks a lot like the Batmobile. It is said to be the 'game changer' in the industry of electric vehicles. The company stated that it already invested $1 billion for a manufacturer based in Nevada to produce the slick cars in a span of two years.

Volkswagen also featured its electric minivan in the Consumer Electric Show. The company calls it the BUDD-e, and its design is derived from the Kombi. The electronic vans are said to be out on the road by 2020. The BUDD-e has the support of Ron Montoya, a consumer advice editor of an auto research company.

'You can easily see that being a production car,' Montoya said. 'Not only would it be a very stylish car that a lot of people have emotional connections with, but it could be potentially one of the first [electric] minivans.'
