GREAT inventions can be mind-blowing and even so it leaves a lifelong legacy of the difference or impacts. Today, such great inventions goes way beyond our imaginations, in fact it go beyond producing less harmful impacts to our environment.
A “green car” or an environmentally vehicle is simply a road motor vehicle powered by alternative fuels, advanced vehicle technologies and hybrid electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles to name a few.
It is a vehicle that is considered to be environmentally friendly, has less of a damaging impact on the environment than conventional cars and consumes less petroleum than conventional cars.
Today, there are a number of green cars available which includes electric cars, hybrid cars, hydrogen cars and solar cars.
Website www.petrolprices.com states that a conventional car works using an internal combustion engine which burns fuel to create motion and fuel.
The burning of fossil fuel results in the emission of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere and therefore these gases have been proven to contribute to the effect of global warming.
On top of this, fuel is created from crude oil. Crude oil is not only a non renewable resource which will one day run out, the production of oil is also highly dangerous for the natural environment.
Oil spills, such as the BP Deepwater Horizon Disaster oil spill in 2010, destroys natural habitats and kills wildlife.
These factors have led to the development of ‘green’ cars, which cause less damage to the environment.
To help you choose you should think about a car’s fuel efficiency and emissions.
Not only will a more efficient vehicle be better for the environment, it will also save you money.
