Greener Automobiles

6 Aug

With rising oil prices and decrease in the supply of petroleum (think BP and the spill, gosh!), the comeback of the electric car seems like the most ideal solution. Wait, did I say comeback? Yes. Apparently, the electric car did make its appearance during a period of car history but was eradicated after a short stint, and the big oil industry players were cited as the key culprits for the death of the electric car.

Thanks to technology and increased research and development, some key market players are pitching their markets and working towards increasing demand for electric cars. China and the U.S. are 2 major markets with huge, dense populations that are working hard at promoting the implementation of electric cars in a bid to reduce the impact of gasoline-run vehicles on the environment. It is such an important issue that China is willing to pump in $15 billion to promote greener automobiles.

If you’re planning on buying your ride, why not consider such a green option? In Australia, REVA is the only option at this point. Else, there are hybrid models such as the Honda Civic Hybrid, the Toyota Prius and the Lexus GS450h to consider.
