The efforts to save our Planet and go green had bore through the R&D departments of car manufacturers. Many electric and hybrid cars had been released to the world market during the past few years and with the recent Auto Show at Detroit, we’re seeing new greener automobiles from major car manufacturers.
No, it’s not the brightest green car paint jobs but the newest eco-friendly models showcased at the Electric Avenue. GM or General Motors has the Chevy Volt, the electric Chevy car expected to hit showrooms this year. Across the road, Nissan unveiled the Nissan Leaf, an all-electric car. There’s also the Mitsubishi Electric Miev, Volvo C30, BMW electric car and a lot more electrifying rides.
The idea of carrying a huge plug and tons of batteries in your car may be absurd today, but with global warming, recent recession, energy crisis and fluctuations on oil prices, going green seems to be the right option. Electric cars are ideal for city drives. For road trips, as long as you don’t mind having frequent stop-overs for recharging, you’ll survive fine with these green cars. Current electric car models boast an average of 80-100 miles per charge.
Why go electric? Current Electric cars boast zero or less emissions, something we can proudly give to Mother Nature. These types of cars are also less expensive than hybrids or gas-powered cars. Plus, the technology is picking up fast. Batteries will likely be less-expensive in the future. Besides that, current electric cars have really stunning, futuristic designs. Driving them are sure head-turners, of course, as long as you don’t run out of power in the middle of the road.
