Green Car Technology For The Future

Sep 2, 2008
Manufacturers and researchers have been dabbling with technology that helps build hybrids, electric cars, and alternative fuel vehicles, for quite some time now, because of the growing concern for our environment. With a shocking revelation that our planet was on the verge of an ecological disaster, in terms of greenhouse gas emissions, by the mid nineties, leading car manufacturers around the world finally came to a consensus regarding fossil fuel consumption, and started producing greener, fuel efficient cars by the turn of the century.

Today, in the 21st century, we have seen many different vehicles with a hybrid engine: a conventional motor engine is present in such vehicles along with an electric engine. The most fuel efficient hybrid cars today switch between the power sources of an electric motor, and a combustion engine according to the power consumed by the car. Typically, in a hybrid vehicle running on city streets or when traveling at low speeds, the electric motor powers the car and during high-speed maneuvering or longer drives, the petrol engine does the work.

It has been a dream of many a manufacturer to combine the green quotient of an electric car, with high performance. Until date, electric cars have shown limited usability and poor performance when it comes to high speeds. Today's electric cars are usually 2 seater, lightweight mini sized cars, with a top speed of 25- 40 mph. when you look at city driving, this is not so bad, but for anything else, this falls short of many people's expectations.

The fact that they are zero emission vehicles make them completely environment friendly, however, and this is something that is immensely beneficial to the city or the country they run in. Research and development on the lines of creating powerful electric motors for a much better performance is something that is essential, when we are looking at cars for the future.

Primarily, these were how to increase the power of the battery powered electric engine for high speeds, decrease time between recharges, and how to gain optimal mileage performance. Nothing short of an engineering feat has lead to the creation of the ultimate engine.

The green technology is spreading up quite fast to various industrial venues these days. Car manufacturing is one of the most important ones of those venues. This spread is bringing in new opportunities to the investors. The luxury sports car or super-car segment is certainly an interesting market driver, and if a green supercar is made available things could change quite a bit within a few short years.
