New Hybrid Cars – Round Up!
New Hybrid Cars
Hybrid vehicles are the perfect answer to the problems that are being faced by the world in the present day when in comes to the environment. Hybrid vehicles are perfectly environmentally safe and should be used preferentially over other vehicles to make the environment safe and in order to reduce carbon footprints. Reduction of the global carbon footprint is a very important consequence of using hybrid vehicles. Hybrid vehicles can guarantee a perfectly safe environment if the use of hybrid vehicles is combined with other practices that will result in the production of a cleaner and greener environment. Hybrid vehicles are the perfect answer to noxious fume emitting petrol guzzling steel machines that we call cars in the present day.
Air pollution has become a menace in the present day. Pollution is basically defined as “the deposition of substances in excess amount causing various harmful effects and this primarily occurs due to anthropogenic (that is, induced by man) activities”. So what exactly are pollutants that cause pollution? Pollutants are basically defined as “substances which adversely alter the environment by changing the growth rate of a species, by interfering with the food chain, health, and in the process prove toxic to mankind.”
There are five primary air pollutants namely carbon dioxide, oxides of nitrogen, sleuthed dioxide, suspended particulate matter, and proxy acetyl nitrate (PAN). Carbon dioxide causes global warming and is a green house gas. Carbon dioxide emission can be controlled by the reduction in the levels of industrial and automobile emission and also by increase of forest cover.
Air quality and standards have to be maintained when it comes to ambient air quality standard maintenance. Air quality and standards have to be maintained to control the levels of air pollution, and to do this a strict check has to be kept on automobile emission in the form of pollution control of automobiles as well as legal implications in case of violation of the pollution control norms as and when applicable. Pollution prevention can be brought about by less generation of effluents in the air. Air pollution prevention is brought about by bacilli three methods. The first method is to use raw material that is less polluting. Low suppurated fuel, better quality petroleum mixture like power fuel, bio diesel and etcetera are examples of this method.
The second method is to use better processes and equipments so that pollution generation is less. Better quality boiler, multi point fuel injection system, and catalytic converter in automobiles reduce harmful emission.
The second method is to treat the pollutants before they are released into the atmosphere. Volatilization of acid vapors, use of scrubbers, electrostatic precipitators and clone separators are some such methods.
So now we come to the harmful effect of emission of noxious fumes from car exhaust. A number of physiological ailments might arise as a result of this. Human health might be adversely affected as a result of inhalation of poisonous fumes that arise as a result of complete or incomplete combustion of petroleum or gasoline that might result in the production of carbon monoxide as well as carbon dioxide gas which can be detrimental to human health.
Hybrid vehicles can cause efficient reduction in the emission of exhaust fumes or can completely eliminate it. They are a perfectly safe alternative to other non hybrid vehicles. As of 2010 a number of hybrid vehicles have been produced in the world by routed motor car companies. These new hybrid cars are better and much more fuel efficient than their predecessors of yesteryears. The new hybrid vehicles have been made with much beater technology and are undoubtedly better than the other existing hybrid cars of the present day that they will definitely phase out.
2010 Dodge Durango Hybrid
2010 Mercedes Benz S Class Hybrid
Although other hybrid cars have made their appearance in 2010 these are the most predominant as they have been produced by the leading automobile makers in the world today and boast of cutting edge design and technology in car design. In terms of emery efficiency these cars are the bet in hybrid cars. Apart from fuel efficiency and reducing c argon footprints and automobile exhaust emissions, these cars have been graded on the following parameters, namely- key dimensions, engine parameters like engine displacement, valves or OHC, max power, max torque, transmission, and other parameters like wheel size, wheel type (radial or tubeless), suspension (both front and rear), brakes (both front and rear), steering and other fuel utilization parameters.
The 2010 BMW ACTIVE HYBRID X6 has a turbo compressor, and its body style is a classic sports utility vehicle (SUV) and it also has a powerful 4.4 liter engine. The 2010 TOYOTA HIGHLANDER HYBRID has a hybrid synergy drive system and like the BMW ACTIVE HYBRID it is also an SUV. The LEXUS GS450H is basically a sedan which boasts of a redefined look and appearance that is spanking new and it also has a great deal of luxury features in it. The new Mercedes Benz S class hybrid version is extremely ecologically friendly as it is made from carbon neutral plastic which is biodegradable and is helpful to reduce the carbon footprint. The passenger compartment is made from this particular plastic and thus is extremely energy efficient. Hybrid engines can go a long way to reduce emissions and is thus a great way to save the environment from the menace of gasoline guzzling machines which would emit noxious fumes.
