Electric vehicles are thought to be the future vehicle, creating a never-ending debate about the benefits and drawbacks that this future vehicle could bring. The report outlines the most important aspects of the final year project. The project will complete a data analytics project that will carry out an analysis of the Electric Vehicle (EV) Industry and the role of carbon dioxide emissions affecting the environment. The project studies whether environmental concerns are causing or influencing the growth of the electric vehicle (EV) industry market, as well as the market for gasoline-powered vehicles. This project will focus on these elements and conduct research on forecasting the growth of EVs and how this affects the growth of gasoline-powered vehicles, CO2 emissions and fossil fuel consumption. Additionally, studying the relationship between stock market and CO2 emissions levels and attempting to assess the risk for retail investors involved in the electric vehicle (EV) market.

The approach for the study will be the CRoss Industry Standard Process for Data Mining. The Tesla dataset, CO2 emissions dataset, Fossil Fuel Consumption dataset, and other datasets such as crude oil and an automotive dataset (BMW) will be integrated and transformed during study. The details, along with the findings and information, will be visualised for the end-user. To that end, the project will use a variety of tools and technology such as Python, Excel, Google Colab, Pandas and other package libraries to transform and clean the data, as well as analyse and evaluate it. The project's goals, criteria, expectations, design, results, and findings will be outlined in this study.
