The automotive industry is an ever-changing one, with more powerful and breathtaking cars appearing every day, and while for a great deal of time the ultimate goal for the industry was to push the limits of mechanics and physics to the absolute limit, there is another segment that seems to have moved into the spotlight nowadays: technology.
Car tech is off to a great year, as demonstrated by the abundance of new car tech displayed at CES 2015. While there may be some aces in the sleeves of the manufacturers, we already have a pretty good picture of the tech that will rock. Here are the top 10 car techs to look forward to this year. 1. Electric Vehicles Sure, we already have electric vehicles, but there’s always room for more. Even though Tesla’s more affordable model is only scheduled to hit the markets in 2016 or 2017, we’re sure we will be seeing other electric vehicles being unveiled this year. Electric cars have tons of advantages…
Electric cars aren't only green; they're also a ton of fun to drive. The growing market includes dozens of models, with new ones joining the club every year. We've rounded up eight of the new battery-electric cars that will hit the U.S. market in 2015/16. Our list just covers battery electrics rather than conventional hybrids or fuel-cell vehicles.
This has been an amazing year for the automotive industry. Sales are up, innovation is in the air, gas prices are at 5-year low, and people are excited about cars again. Going into 2015, there's no doubt these trends will continue.
Discover how fuel cell cars work, their eco-friendly benefits, current technology status, and potential challenges. Is hydrogen the future of automotive power?
In an era where gas prices are as high as they have ever been, and the average household more dependent on their cars than ever, some who can are choosing to switch to electric vehicles (EVs). More frequently than ever, car manufacturers are offering either hybrid or fully electric cars for reasonable fuel prices that beat even the reduced cost of natural gas.
Elon Musk, the electric car evangelist and the owner of Tesla Motors, recently teased the public with the new car model which is expected to see the light of day sometimes in 2016 - the Model 3. We tried to find out as much as possible about it and here is what we think should be its main selling points.
A couple of weeks ago, we witnessed a potentially significant milestone in the further development of the electric cars industry. Elon Musk from Tesla Motors, famous for their much lauded S series of electric cars, announced that Tesla is relinquishing all their patents to help other companies potentially interested in electric cars manufacture. This will do miracles for the industry and the advent of electric cars seems imminent.
A survey conducted in the UK has revealed that 65% of motorists are planning on buying a more environmentally friendly vehicle the next time they are looking to purchase a brand new car. The majority of respondents blamed rising fuel prices for this decision; with a further 5% of stating that they had been forced off the road altogether.
New cars are being developed in order to make them more sustainable, safer, more energy efficient, and less polluting. These won't exactly be the cars we've seen in science-fiction movies, but they should be a big improvement over what we have today.
