In the world we live, the depletion progresses faster than improvement. Our environment is degrading at a rapid speech and we need to bring about some efficient changes. With automobiles being manufactured at a high demand, the levels of carbon emissions and damage to our environment has reached its peak. Electric cars have been in the market for a while now but have yet to reach its peak of popularity. People are worried that the battery might die while they are on the road and in turn stray away from electric cars. Although, now there are quite a few charging stations available yet there is no roadside assistance for these vehicles. SparkChange aims to bring about this change.
