Electric vehicles (EVs) are becoming increasingly popular, both on the road and in popular culture. As EVs become more widespread and affordable, they are also becoming the subject of more and more movies, songs, and paintings.
EVs have been featured in a number of recent movies, including:
The Avengers: Endgame (2019): Captain America drives an electric Hyundai Kona in this blockbuster superhero film.
No Time to Die (2021): James Bond drives an electric Aston Martin DB5 in this instalment of the long-running spy franchise.
Don't Look Up (2021): Leonardo DiCaprio's character drives an electric Tesla Model S in this satirical comedy about a planet-killing comet.
These films portray EVs as being stylish, high-performance, and environmentally friendly. They also help to normalize the idea of driving an EV, which can make them more appealing to consumers.
EVs have also been the subject of a number of recent songs, including:
Tesla (2013) by Elon Musk: This song is a humorous ode to the Tesla Model S, with Musk rapping about the car's features and benefits.
Electric Avenue (2013) by Eddy Grant: This classic song celebrates the rise of electric vehicles, with Grant singing about the "electric avenue" where "the future is coming on."
EV (Electrified) (2022) by Will.i.am: This upbeat song promotes the benefits of EVs, with Will.i.am singing about how they are "good for the planet" and "good for your soul."
These songs help to raise awareness of EVs and make them more appealing to a wider audience.
EVs have also been the subject of a number of recent paintings, including:
Electric Future (2021) by Michael Cheval: This painting depicts a futuristic cityscape with EVs flying through the air.
The Green Commute (2022) by Jane Lee: This painting shows a woman driving an EV through a lush green forest.
EVolution (2023) by Alex Grey: This painting depicts a human figure merging with an EV, suggesting that EVs are becoming an integral part of our lives.
These paintings help to create a positive image of EVs and promote their adoption.
The portrayal of EVs in movies, music, and art is helping to shape popular culture in a number of ways. First, it is making EVs more visible and familiar to the public. Second, it is helping to dispel myths about EVs, such as the idea that they are slow and impractical. Third, it is making EVs more appealing to a wider range of people, including young people and women.
As EVs become more widespread and affordable, they are likely to play an even bigger role in popular culture. This will help to further normalize the idea of driving an EV and make them more attractive to consumers.
