Travelling, be it on the ground, on water or in the air has seen a multitude of cleaner, electric options emerge, as battery technology, aided by governmental incentives, means longer, more practical, electric rides are becoming viable.

But it's not always about practicality- it's also about the environment and style! 

Marine pollution from cruise ships and cargo vessels is grim, with maritime transport accounting for about 3% of all greenhouse gas emissions, primarily carbon dioxide. So electric power and wind harnessing technology is the way to go. All the better if you can do it in a stealthy sleek way!

Aviation accounts for 2.5% of global CO₂ emissions. 

Private cars and vans were responsible for more than 25% of global oil use and around 10% of global energy-related CO2 emissions in 2022.

So we all need to #MinimiseOurHumanFootprint and make the switch to electric travel. 

We take a look at the Top 10 Cool Electric Rides across Land, Sea and Air.
