Now people will not just buy a car because they are
fuel efficient but they are concerned about several
other issues as well

A hybrid vehicle is one that combines a
smaller-than-normal internal combustion
gasoline engine with the electric motor of an
They are generally designed to be more
aerodynamic than most cars, allowing them
to “slice” through the air instead of pushing it
out of the way.
The Moovie, an electric powered
car, designed by André Costa,
doesn't look like an ordinary car. Its
round shape and large side sliding
doors resemble the futuristic cars
we sometimes see in the movies. It
seats two people, drives on big
wheels and has hollow rims.
The large wheels save energy
because they don't require as much
work to turn as small wheels
require. Also, the rear-view mirrors
neatly fold up away from the

The “mini cat” which uses compressed air,
is a simple and light urban car with a
tubular chassis, a body of fiberglass which
is glued and not welded.
This car costs about Rs.3,65,000 and will be
ready to hit the roads by August 2012, as
scheduled byTata motors.
This Hummer is not a "gas
hog" like the other ones.
Instead, it is
How? The Hummer O2 is
built to emit O2 instead of
CO2 by using algae to
convert CO2 into pure
oxygen (in other words,
In addition, the Hummer O2
is made of recycled parts.
Hydrogen is one such fuel that has been
proposed for the purpose which was suitable for
spark ignition engines .
Hydrogen combines the properties of higher
calorific value ,higher velocity of flame
propagation ,non toxicity as well as lowest
possible emission levels that do not affect the
balance of the water of the hydrosphere.

devoid of carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide
which is the major advantage of vehicles
powered by fuel cell vehicles.

How does the Bombardier Embrio
stay balanced on one wheel?
It stays balanced with something
called gyroscope. It also comes
with sensors, a high-performance
braking system, active
suspension, and night vision. Best
of all, making a turn requires
shifting body weight instead of
Instead of steel-framed
multi-ton vehicles powered
by internal combustion
engines, it is possible to see
cars made of carbon-
composite materials that are
lighter and stronger than
steel, with sleek
aerodynamic shapes and
incredibly efficient engines.
In fact, some of these cars
are so efficient that you
could plug them in and
return power to the grid for a
discount on your electric bill.
It's called the Recy, is a
Mercedes Benz and was
designed to be an
environmental conscious car.
It truly is.
. How? Recy is powered by a
four-cylinder Blu-Tec bio-
diesel motor and is made of
recycled parts: wood, alloys,
glass and rubber
after using it for five years,
instead of adding it to the

taken to a recycling center
and be recycled again.
German car startup company, Loremo, which

Ultra light future cars will be made of lightweight

composites and other hybrid materials. By
adjusting the weight of the car parts, companies

When a City Car isn't in use, it would collapse
into a smaller size and stack against other City
Cars, much like a row of shopping carts.
In this manner, eight vehicles could fill the area
of a parking space traditionally used for one
standard-sized, conventional automobile.

The PAD is a high-tech motor home made for living in full-
time, not just for weekend trips. It's packed with the latest
communications equipment and amenities, which is why GMC
calls it a Living ActivityVehicle, or LAV.
The PAD includes DirecTV, On Star and XM Satellite Wi-Fi.
That means users would have constant access to more than a
hundred TV channels, high-speed wireless Internet, and a
variety of On Star services, including vehicle diagnostics,
emergency assistance, and traffic, travel and weather
The interior walls of the PAD are covered with giant LCD
screens. A fully computerized resource management system
allows the PAD to wring every last drop out of fuel and potable
water supplies, with the projected time between refills lasting
weeks or months. To supplement energy demands, six square
meters of photovoltaic cells cover the top of the PAD, charging
on-board batteries with energy collected from the sun.
