The need for change

We are advancing in every field and technology which has provided more benefits to us but we fail to realize the consequences of our advancement. We are still exploiting each and every resource provided by the natural environment and has not taken many steps towards re establishment strategies. We can at least think of reducing the pollution exhaled by our own human activities into the environment. With this we come to the concept of "Green Cars" for controlling the levels of pollutants into air.

"Green" Cars

"Green" Cars are that which emit less pollutant, and that are planet friendly, they add up to a lot of benefits to this world.

  • Quite simple, better fuel economy, less to pay for fuel.
  • Lower NICs and BiK liabilities for employer and lower tax for employee. Tax on company cars is based on the CO2 threshold. Cars below 160g/km cost less.
  • In the future further incentives may be introduced for the greenest cars such as cheaper parking and reduced congestion charging.
  • According to the Energy Saving Trust's report published in April 2007, a company with 100 vehicles could be saving £90,000 a year by implementing green fleet policies.

Hybrid Car information (mixture cars)

Hybrid cars run on more than one type of fuel. Most of the hybrid cars run on both gasoline ( petroleum) and electricity. And most of the time the alternate energy source used is electricity in the form of rechargeable batteries. Hybrid cars that use rechargeable batteries are termed as electric hybrid cars.
The top hybrid cars are

Why should you opt for Hybrid cars?

Advantages of hybrid cars
  • The common complaints today are the reduction level of gasoline as it is a non-renewable energy which is a major drawback of the conventional cars. Electric cars came out for its remedy but still have its own cons. But hybrid cars can rectify the complaints in the both systems and balances the use of electrical energy and gasoline engine, in their optimum levels.
  • The Regenerative Braking technology does not require the batteries to be charged by an external source
  • Some of the most efficient hybrids can manage on battery only during the stop-go conditions of urban traffic. "The Toyota Prius leads the field for efficiency", so far.
  • Hybrid car have multifaceted profits; it attributes economical, technical and economical benefits.

Tit bits of a few top efficiency hybrid cars for your read-through:

Volkswagen L1 Diesel-Electric Hybrid

It launches from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.8 seconds and, when driven more conservatively, is said to deliver average fuel efficiency in excess of 60 mpg as measured in the EU test cycle. Top speed is an electronically governed 155 mph.
Cayenne S Hybrid
Cayenne S Hybrid provides 20% less CO2 emissions and an average of 27 mpg of fuel efficiency. The Cayenne S Hybrid gets V8 power and acceleration of 4-cylinder fuel efficiency and emissions.
Toyota Prius Hybrid
The Prius "emits up to one tonne less CO2 per year," while on-screen text included: "1 tonne of CO2 less than an equivalent family vehicle with a diesel engine. Prius has better ratings as a Super Ultra Low Emissions Vehicle. Miles on a Tank – 493 miles Tank Size 11.9 gal

You may find these common grumblings on Hybrid cars:

  • They tend to accelerate at a slower speed when compared to normal vehicles
  • Though the batteries of the hybrid cars run for a long period, before harboring a need to be replaced, you have to replace them at least on completing 80,000 miles.
  • The estimated fuel savings that are to be expected in a hybrid car are exaggerated.

Electric Car / Electric Powered Car

Electric car or Electric Powered Cars are alternative fuel automobiles using only electricity to drive it. They use electric motors and motor controllers to drive the force instead of using internal combustion engine (ICE). Electric cars are generally powered by the on board battery packs. The electric vehicle (EV) gained popularity between the mid-19th century and early 20th century, when electricity was among the favored methods for automobile propulsion.

The electric cars which store the electricity in batteries or capacitors cannot replace all the gasoline based cars. Let's see an en example. The electric car might not be covering a trip where the gasoline car needs a number of quick fuel stops on the way to continue its ride. And it's proved that only 90% people are there who accept EV cars.

Electric car emissions surveyed in Germany and US

While electric cars produce no emissions at the tailpipe— indeed they don't have one— their use increases demand for electrical generation. Generating electricity and producing liquid fuels for vehicles are different categories of the energy economy, with different inefficiencies and environmental harms, but both emit carbon dioxide into the environment. The wheel to wheel(WTW) carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions of electric cars is always lower than those of conventional cars, but the amount of savings depend on the emissions intensity of the existing electricity infrastructure.
This study concluded that introducing 1 million EV cars to Germany would, in the best case scenario, only reduce CO2 emissions by 0.1%, if nothing is done to upgrade the electricity infrastructure or manage demand. An EV recharged from the existing US grid electricity emits about 115 grams of CO2 per km driven, (g(CO2)/km) whereas a conventional gasoline powered car emits 250 g(CO2)/km.

Few air car advantages that do not override its problems

  • Using air for energy eliminates the necessity of spark plugs, a gas tank, or a cooling system for the engine.
  • Lower costs in comparison to combustion engines and the obvious safety of air as an energy source are two of the top benefits cited.

Solar Cars

A solar vehicle is an electric vehicle which is powered by solar energy collected by the solar panels on the surface of the vehicle. Photo voltaic (PV) cells convert the Sun's energy directly into electrical energy. The solar cars combine the technology used in bicycle, aerospace, alternative energy and automotive.

Efficient Solar Cars

The Blue Electric Solar Car
The blue car is made from LMP battery which is based on Lithium Metal Polymer technology. The creators say that since it is powered by electricity, and therfore produces less CO2 pollution. The LMP seems to be more ethical choice as it is more readily available than the elusive lithium or hydrogen-powered alternatives.
