Finding the most environmental friendly cars


The key components that contribute towards polluting the environment are the harmful gases from vehicles. They not only affect the environment but also cause smog and serious health problems. Greenhouse gases trap heat and contribute to global warming. At present, the most important topic of concern is to find solution to control the emission of harmful gases. It is necessary to find a most fuel efficient and environmental friendly car for better future. These cars should reduce the emission of harmful components in the air, yet give the same performance as that of petrol or diesel cars.

Top automakers across the world are busy in manufacturing improved models of car using alternative fuel to reduce greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Eco friendly cars like flex fuel models, hybrid electric and electric cars, hydrogen vehicles and solar should take the roads commercially to save the Earth. Our world is already blessed with Hybrid and Electric cars that contribute a lot in reduction of environmental pollution, less fuel consumption and making the world a better place to live in.


Today’s most popular hybrid cars Honda Civic, Honda Insight and Toyota Prius have surpassed the expected reduction levels. The recommended levels suggested for a typical passenger vehicle should be equal to 5.5 metric tons of carbon dioxide as per EPA, but these hybrid vehicles producing 4.1, 3.5, and 3.5 tons shown a major improvement in carbon dioxide emissions. Hybrid vehicles can reduce air emissions of smog-forming pollutants by up to 90% and cut carbon dioxide emissions to half.


Due to increase of pollution in the environment, and constant rise of fuel prices, people are inclining towards Electric cars. Electric vehicles are the only and most desired transportation to keep both in control for present and future. Honda EV PLUS, Nissan ALTRA EV, Nissan LEAF, Toyota RAV4-EV, BMW 5-Series, Audi A8 and many more to come. At the New York International Auto Show, Nissan LEAF was named the 2011 World Car of the Year. The car beats BMW 5-Series and the Audi A8 for the top spot as the 100% zero-emission car. This 5-seater, 5-door hatchback is the world’s first, purpose-built, mass-produced electric car. It has a range of over 100 miles on a full charge claims Nissan, takes around 8 hours to recharge using 220-240V power supply and produces zero tailpipe emissions.


Today, almost every car maker is taking eager steps in the field of developing hybrid or electric vehicles. Rapid development is on to produce more eco- friendly and fuel efficient cars all over the world. New and better versions are added frequently.


It is obvious that these cars are far more expensive than petrol or diesel cars and are unaffordable for many people. Most people understand the need to switch to new alternates, but this high cost and lack of infrastructure is a drawback. Little that we can do is use less “accelerator” while driving. Using smaller compact cars when possible, keeping the windows shut while on highway drive, use your car air conditioners sparingly, keeping the gas tank little empty, proper maintenance and overhauling of your car can do a lot.



We already have the technology, we need to cure our dependency on oil, balance the climate and maintain our standard of living. Today many used hybrids are available at much lower price in Japan. There are many used vehicle exporters in Japan that can provide fuel efficient and quality vehicles at reasonable rates. So, if planning to buy a car, going with a hybrid or electric won’t be a bad choice.
