An electric vehicle has been around for several decades. Still, the advancement in Internal Combustion Engines (ICE) further relegated it to the background, but due to the environmental implication of fossil fuel sources as a means of powering ICE vehicles. The world is focusing on sustainable and renewable energy, as efforts are made to diversify into other fuel sources. The electric vehicle has shown the tremendous potential of been an alternate means for the transportation industry. Despite the successes thus far, there remains a significant challenge of Electric Vehicles, which is the cost of purchase and charging infrastructure in the developing countries. However, the benefits are numerous and thus outweigh the challenges. The accrued benefits are connected with the environmental condition, human state of health, negligible CO2 and harmful emissions, economic growth, and development. This study gives an insight into the impact assessment of Electric Automobiles, identifying the challenges and opportunities and the benefits.
