The On Going Life Of The Automobile

Jul 18, 2008
Many years ago a man somewhere had an idea, an idea of the perfect mode of transport.

This idea soon took off and created what we all know and love today as the car, or do we all love it?.

With increasing amounts of people trying to push us onto the "global warming" bandwagon is there really much of a future in the machine that has been blamed for the majority of the pollution in the air?, is battery power the correct way forward?.

Perhaps a different means of transportation is due for release.

Many companies have tried to make better of the car by introducing new ways of powering the engine such as the well known electric car motors that are run simply by the car battery and boldly claim to be the way forward which for all we know they are.

Or are they? Well many people who have tried battery powered cars complain of low top speed being produced and sluggish 0 - 60 times as well as the power supply only lasting the equivalent of a trip to the shop, so maybe not that then.

If you really want the reliability and the speed of an average fuel powered motor vehicle then an average car doesn't have to be the awnser, you could always buy a hybrid, if you are willing to still use a motor engine, but with your primary power source being an electric engine then their are lots of car companies that would be more than happy to help you with your choice.

Honda being the first to come to mind with their constant bragging that they make the cars that will make our future possible.

But is this really true as you do still have to take into consideration the fact that they do still run on two engines, one being the "way forward" and the other being to blame for the pollution that is "killing our planet".

So i guess the motor vehicle is out of the question, but it doesn't have to be as if you are happy to put up with the pollution of a standard engine, or the low speed of an electric engine then you may not have a problem.

But just as I go to end the choices for ways in which you can propel your car one more way rears its head, its been around for a while now but it just hasn't caught on... I'm talking of course about fuel cells, yet another way to make the future better, but we simply cant tell if it will help until it is properly looked into, yes im sure we have all seen the press releases of these cars and the specs that these things have... but they do need allot of money to be invested into them...

Money which is currently being poured into the pockets of car manufacturers that make battery powered vehicles... so perhaps we should put that one to the side until further information is available, which by the way may be coming your way soon as many companies seem to have seen the potential in it and put their name up to help, and once again Honda throws in a hand with a car already planned that will run on a fuel cell, but at this present date its only a concept.

But who ever said that the only definition of mode of transport is via a car or even a truck or a motor bike... many companies have shown us their visions of the future with the rapidly increasing amounts of alternatives like solar powered skate boards and weird scooter thingies that have a wheel beside either foot, you know the one and bikes that have devices on them that power up as your peddling then power the bike when your tired out.

In the words of Gary Jules "its a very very.... mad world", so I leave you with this question, what do you see as the way forward for mankind?.
