The battery is the source to drive and power features such as air conditioning, GPS and the radio. To normal buyers this sounds like a great answer to the environmentalist mind set of greener is better. The other motor is the hybrid or the semi electric motor. The hybrid works almost like the full gasoline motor most people drive with today. The hybrids run and power the features with a gasoline and electric power source.
The first concerns about auto emissions reestablished interest in electric vehicles. From then on, car companies strive to make better fuel efficient cars and hybrids. From the 1960s to now there has been major improvements in the technology of the hybrid car. Some improvements include the phase out of the NiCad battery. up until 2010, every hybrid vehicle operates using a Nickel-Cadmium battery pack to store power for its electric motor.
One of the major problems is the emissions produced by the cars used all over the world which are detrimental to Earth and are progressively causing global warming and an abnormal climate shift. As a result of growing environmental concerns, engineers have concentrated their efforts in order to find a new approach for this problem; and the result was quite fascinating: The hybrid electric car (HEV). “A hybrid vehicle is a vehicle that uses an on- board rechargeable energy storage system and a fuel based power source for vehicle propulsion. These vehicles use much less fuel than their counterparts and produce fewer emissions”. Jeffrey Orloff (2014) (Para1).
The mission of Tesla Motors is creating affordable, fully electric, earth-friendly and sustainable vehicles. The aim of this mission is to influence and transition masses away from the excessive usage of natural and valuable resources to a cleaner and more sustainable future. As Tesla continues with its pursuit of going green, it also seeks a place in the highly competitive and lucrative car industry. The company has developed breathtaking designs that people keenly look for in... ... middle of paper ... ...al combustion vehicle emissions. Sustainable practices, technology, collaborations are producing a new breed of vehicles aiming for a greener future for the world.
If the nickel metal hydride batteries aren?t disposed of properly, there could be environmental side effects. Who will fix these cars? Currently, a hybrid will have to be brought back to the dealership for maintenance and that could prove to be more expensive than a private mechanic. However, as hybrids become more popular and costs drop, so will the associated maintenance fees. With the benefits weighed against the drawbacks, it is clear that hybrid vehicles are a plausible measure in controlling greenhouse emissions.
Brief background of ‘Tesla’ Tesla is a futuristic electric autopilot car maker and provider of renewable energy solutions. Tesla’s cars are based on revolutionary high-power battery, and release zero emissions. Tesla advocates the need for the world to completely switch from fossil fuel based automobiles to renewable energy based automobiles. Tesla offers four variants of its electric cars Roadster, Model S, Model X and Model 3 with price ranging from $36000 to $250000. All Tesla car models are also equipped with Autopilot self-driving capability.
Saudi Arabia offers another solution through its Gaza 1, an electric car that was created by student at King Saud University and is to be produced by 2016 bases on a Mercedes G class platform. Green car development in essential for national energy security, and it helps keep the environment clean from carbon emission. The use of a green car employs the use of clean renewable energy which produces less harmful emissions to the environment and having a high efficiency rate is a sufficient way to maintain a healthy and emission free environment.
Clean energy. It’s something that is becoming more and more necessary as time goes on and the environment gets worse and worse. Gasoline, especially, is one of the leading contributions to the rapidly increasing state of global warming. Tesla Motors Inc. is a company that is working hard every day to contribute to said ‘clean energy’, by creating cars that run electrically, instead of harmful diesel fuels. Just this small contribution can make a world of a difference to the environment.
The real-life Tony Stark is revolutionizing the car industry. Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk has started building all electric cars and SUVs and they are taking over the electric vehicle market. Although electric vehicles have been around for a while, Elon Musk and Tesla are the first to create an attractive car that gets fantastic range. Previous electric cars had odd proportions, did not get good range, or were unreasonably priced. Tesla now offers a solution to these issues.
The future American commuter will undoubtedly have to transition from the use of fossil fuels to new alternatives due to the diminishing availability of the nation’s oil resources. How will America respond to this upcoming issue? It is difficult to predict which alternative fuel source America will ultimately choose, but with the premier of Nissan’s electric powered Leaf and other companies; such as Tesla Motors and Chevy, with their electric cars ready for market, the electric car may be winning the race to become the new standard for the gasoline alternative. Electric cars resolve long standing environmental issues, but it will need to maneuver around many roadblocks to become a marketable consideration for the general public. The cost of electric cars, currently on the market, makes them an impractical purchase for the average consumer.
