Grasping Green Car Technology

Green Car Pages


We are witnessing the launch of a new era of more less-polluting vehicles powered by that aren’t always If you’re considering buying one of the new you may well be concerned not only how it handles but with how well it hold up over time, it might cost to maintain and if it will be as good for the environment your wallet) as claimed. with a little information, the new world of greener alternative and drivetrains is easy to grasp.

Use the below and the accompanying new vehicle to guide your purchasing as you look for the best car that your needs.


Hybrid gas-electric cars, have been on U.S. for more than a decade, aren’t that complicated. Add an motor and rechargeable batteries to the gas engine and see your efficiency by as much as 50 percent, with levels of reduction in emissions.

Due to the cost of the batteries and other hybrids tend to cost a more than conventional but the so-called hybrid premium is coming down. For high-MPG most studies show you’ll recoup the extra during the course of ownership. The of hybrid choices will to 55 models in the next five

Plug-in Hybrid Cars

A hybrid car is similar to a conventional vehicle — both use a engine as well as an electric However, a plug-in hybrid larger battery packs can be recharged by connecting to common electricity. Plug-in hybrids can be for long distances — a few miles to as much as 40 miles without using any gasoline.

The Chevy Volt is the first plug-in hybrid, but more are on the way from Toyota, Ford, and others.

Plug-in hybrids many of the benefits of electric without the biggest drawback: driving range. When the runs out of the battery in a plug-in it’s no problem. The car will just like a conventional until your next to plug in.

Electric Vehicles

a hybrid car — which is by gasoline and uses a battery and to improve efficiency — an car is powered exclusively by electricity. cars produce no tailpipe reduce our dependency on oil, and are to operate.

EVs have fewer parts and systems and therefore lower maintenance costs. also come with warranties to provide consumers comfort with adopting technology.

Of course, the process of the electricity moves the emissions upstream to the utility company’s Yet on average electricity can cut carbon to half that released by a car — even less in with cleaner generation, more in areas that more on dirty coal plants.

Besides driving range which can vary between 60 and 120 — the biggest concern electric cars these is cost. The purchase price of cars can run quite a bit higher similar conventional cars, but generous government incentives, maintenance costs, and the lower per mile for electricity compared to the new breed of electric cars a lower cost of ownership. no tailpipe emissions and no trips to the gas

High Fuel Efficiency, Gasoline Engine Cars

A car a smaller engine will always use less fuel. The news is that gas-sippers are no stripped down econoboxes comfort, amenities, safety, and Thanks to advances in gas-engine — like direct turbocharging and variable timing press reports indicate this new breed of fuel-efficient is comfortable, stylish and fun to drive. often can be more affordable the better known hybrids, and no compromises in terms of driving or safety.

A growing number of them are past 40 mpg on the highway, giving a run for their money.


Diesels operate more by igniting fuel with compression ratios and high temperatures. As a result, diesel attain better fuel than their gasoline In addition, a gallon of diesel contains about 10 percent energy than a gallon of

These factors help diesels achieve roughly 25 higher fuel economy their gasoline counterparts.

The cleanest of the current crop of vehicles are now available in all 50 states, to innovative new pollution control that meet EPA’s pollution standards. Diesel now account for nearly half of all new sales in Europe, and a small but market share in the U.S.

Flex-Fuel and Biodiesel Vehicles

are a tricky subject. In theory, that run on fuel that is in the ground — rather drilled and extracted from it should be better for the environment. But studies show that ethanol, the most common of biofuel in the U.S. is a net loser of has questionable emissions benefits, and has a impact on food prices.

there’s the problem of finding a that offers E85 — a of 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent — and the fact that E85 less energy in a gallon and can end up costing more for a mile of

Biodiesel, which runs in vehicles, can have a better — that is, if it comes recycled sources, like restaurant oil. But new diesel cannot use high blends of because the pollution control is too sensitive and biodiesel pumps are few and far
