How Green Cars Transform the Way we Live

by on Feb.22, 2012, under Car Accessories, Green Cars

It is amazing to see how vehicles today transform the way we live in reaching our destination from our home to school, work place or in the mall. However, in a retrospective point of view, car companies focus so much attention in innovating performances of engine, wheels and aerodynamics features to make it as light as possible yet durability and quality remain intact. Due to the erratic changes in our environment, pollution detriments our ecosystem brought about from car exhausts, factory fumes and industrial output waste. Thus, mechanical engineers have set the limits further to a new generation in inventing green cars not only for the benefit of the society but ultimately for the environment. 

Electric cars have already been made before but it did not attract the market of car industry. Probably, the mechanics were not pleased by car enthusiasts because of its snail-pace performance, lack of premium components for batteries and its price. Until the birth of biodiesel, people have open up the gates to modern and new driving for the environment. Companies like Verenium and Nova Biosource are currently building a better provision for renewable energy source and utilizing organic matter to help reduce petroleum oil and gas.

Green cars are immensely a trend now for hybrid cars. Literally, it is persuading the auto industry to activate the real mechanics of high-class dynamics. For instance, luxury cars such as Porsche, FIAT, Chevrolet, Mercedes and BMW are reinfusing turbo-charged batteries from various brands. Imagine if gasoline stations are loading electrical ionic charges rather than petroleum diesel, then conjugating fuel consumption will be less.

Because electric cars are the best highlights in runway car shows nowadays, meet these prestigious specs from the latest release of three best buys in the list: BMW, FIAT, and Ford 

BMW stormed the market when model ActiveE release its hybridized specs. With a hybrid synchronous motor built in a horsepower of 170 unit and 250 lb/ft of torque, this green vehicle achieves its record to emit zero unit of carbon dioxide. Though the key features weigh to a total of 1, 500 kilograms, BMW Company targets the driving range to the ActiveE model to 240 kilometers upon fully charge.

Gucci’s FIAT 500 of 2012 edition is simply overwhelming. Forget about fashion accessories and clothesline, this retro green car customizes the art of driving with High MPG green factor.  Fiat’s 1.2-liter 69 bhp engine offers light driving and firm suspensions. However, should you decide for a long journey with Fiat, automotive adviser recommends the 1.3-liter MultiJet diesel at the level of 95 bhp to prevent driving strains.

The Ford Focus SFE attributes one of the common green car series in America. This High MPG sedan maximizes the use of family at an affordable price. With Powertrain Control Module as engine electronics, 160 units of horsepower and 146 lb/ft of torque, the vehicle is explicitly versatile. In addition, the Focus SFE receives 28 MPG City and runs at 40 Highway MPG.
