The technology revolution in automobile industry initiated an electric drive vehicle (EV) introduced and becomes a trend as the need to embrace the sustainable technology in the twenty-first century. Recent years, the renascent interest in the transition from gasoline-fuelled vehicle to the electric vehicle being more emphasize because of it promising technology to create a green environment with zero emission of greenhouse gasses and independent on fossil fuel. However, the mistrust of public and even car companies on the range of EV and battery life threatened the market of adoption. Thus, a study is conducted to identify the issues and drives of using EV in automobile industries and to study the future trend of EV in Malaysia. The mixed approach of qualitative and quantitative methods is applied in this study. A STEEPV analysis is employed in this study as a foresight methodology. Survey questionnaire distribution used to determine the key issues and drives and its correlating impact-uncertainty analysis. The finding revealed top two drivers, the availability and affordability of EV related service and equipment, and society willingness to adopt the novel technology. These drivers were used to construct future scenario analysis to propose a foresight of four diverse possibilities that might encounter in time horizon of future 10 to 15 years. A strong correlation signified which both drivers must be co-existed to emerge a positive environmental sustainable future scenario building. The studied uncertainties that might affect the future of EV would be beneficial to the automobile industries and future researcher.
