Hybrids and Gas Guzzlers

The newest car solution seems to be to meet the gas crisis by putting out more green hybrid electric cars. With gas prices fluctuating and the state of the economy up in the air as it is, driving a car in America has become quite a hassle and many people are turning toward other options because it feels like continuing to operate their vehicles will be a waste of money when there are scooters, motorcycles, bicycles, rideshares and public transportation to consider. Alternatives like public transportation and car pooling are becoming much more prevalent in this day and age, and the demand for gas guzzling options like the newest SUV to hit the market is not as high as it once was because gas prices simply are not cooperating.

Luckily, the big three automakers in the United States are wising up to this fact and seem to plan on combating the low turnover for new automobile sales by creating new vehicle options that cater to the needs of people looking for hot new vehicles that also happen to be hybrid electric cars. More demand is being placed on used cars and smaller cars because they are more affordable, and in many cases can offer better mileage, so the big three automakers in the United States are going to make less money until they nip this problem in the bud by producing vehicles that will create increased demand, and this is where hybrid electric cars are coming in.

The big three automakers really need to find a way to push out more green hybrid electric cars, as well as hybrid trucks, SUTs and SUVs, offering them at competitive and affordable prices in order to drum up some support and demand. This is going to take care of the fueling crisis, because there will be new style preferences and model preferences and less stress will be placed on trying to find a fuel efficient vehicle when there are so many options on the market.

If the big tree automakers continue to lobby for and invest in electric refueling stations and other similar concepts, they would gain more popularity for their companies while offering new chances for consumers to get hybrid electric cars, which save money and cut down on harmful greenhouse gas emissions. If there were more refueling stations out there for green hybrid electric cars, then there would be more hybrid cars and more electric cars, and the sales of these vehicles would also increase significantly because these dynamics absolutely go hand in hand with one another. Even as the gas prices go down, it is still incredibly wise for green hybrid electric cars to take over the street, because these cars offer exceptional benefits. More electric and hybrid car sales and more refueling stations for these green hybrid electric cars will absolutely lead to more profits for these automakers, which in turn would lead to more jobs and less layoffs, benefiting not only the consumers, but the companies and their employers as well.

Zero Pollution Motors’ Air Car

In the past, a car powered by a battery or even by air may have seemed impossible, but the technology to accomplish this has actually been around for many decades. This technology was overlooked in favor of combustion engines despite the superior technology of the air and electric engine over the combustion engine. Despite this turn of events, battery and air powered cars have been making a strong comeback due to the change in awareness of global warming and unwise decision to raise gas prices, which have resulted in consumers becoming more gas-smart and driving more economically.

The Toyota Prius has been the reigning vehicle in regards to cost, performance, and being green. The Prius can average between 40 and 60mpg, and has a fair amount of room for multiple passengers with available trunk space, which is something that many hybrid cards do not offer as the batteries typically fill up the trunk. In addition, the Prius is a comfortable price that will not rip your wallet in half in order to buy it. In addition, the current tax breaks also make buying any kind of hybrid electric car a wise decision, especially when in consideration of the rising gas costs despite the recent drop.

However, the Toyota Prius may now have some competition with the arrival of the Zero Pollution Motors’ “Air” car, which can run off air. It averages around 106 mpg, and although it only has a top speed of 35mph, this top speed is more than economical in most locations. However, if you want to go on the highway, the CAV can use a small motor to compress air as you drive by to allow you to travel for almost 800 miles on a combination of air and either bio-diesel, gas, ethanol, or multiple forms of vegetable oil in order to compress the air. With the new advances in solar technology, it may be possible to completely do away with the need to refill the small gas engine in favor or an electric one that will recharge as you drive combined with solar energy. This could potentially allow a person to continue to drive indefinitely.

Green hybrid vehicles are typically expensive in nature, but with competitive vehicles like the Prius and ZPM “Air”, these prices are being driven down. The Air goes for a solid price of about $20,000, and although it is not yet in the United States, the expected date for seventeen different plants to open is 2011 as soon as testing and safety approval is complete. In addition, this technology is not welded together as with traditional vehicles, and is instead built like airplanes with airplane technology, allowing any individual part to be replaced without intensive work. With technology moving this quickly and new innovations happening all of the time, and the desire by so many individuals to protect this world with green technology, green hybrid cars will be leaving behind combustion vehicles in their rear view mirrors.
