The automotive industry is advancing and revolutionizing at a very quick pace. Even only a few short years ago, the only available cars were manual engine vehicles but over the years vehicles with automatic transmissions have been developed. We are currently experiencing a paradigm shift from producing cars that are fuel dependent to electrically powered cars in the industry. This move is sought to reduce the fuel emissions that pose a major threat to our environment. Automotive technology is also automating drives and providing high-tech features such as gesture control and self-parking abilities.The analysis below gives a snapshot of some of the cars that are either in use or are being developed today.
