The Role of CT&T in the Global Electric Car FieldEach government tries to reduce pollution by supporting the Green car industry because internal combustion engines give off exhaust gas which pollutes the air and causes global warming. The US and Europe have already used various electric cars such as the Neighborhood Electric Vehicle (NEV) and Low Speed Vehicle (LSV). Thus, if a country doesn't have Green car technology, it will fall behind in the automobile industry.
Korea is completely dependent on oil imports, so the country should not only make fuel-efficient cars but also develop electric vehicles. Fortunately, the Korean government set a goal - Low Carbon, Green Growth - and supports these endeavors. Electric cars are the most suitable for achieving the goal because they can be commercialized almost immediately. Also, they are different from hybrid cars, which have been developed competitively by many advanced countries. Korea should make unique electric car technologies first, which will help the country to catch up with other advanced countries. In addition, it will help Korean economy, because electric cars can bypass other countries' environmental regulations and free Korea from the economic bondage caused by changing oil prices. Therefore, the country should continue developing new products, secure core technology about electric cars, and make the global standard of electric cars to lead the world market.
