Here I will be comparing the electric car with its petrol engine car counterpart. Combustion engine cars produce a lot of carbon emissions that are ejected into our atmosphere, leaving us vulnerable to things like pollution and greenhouse gases. In order to help the environment we live in, an electric car is
Topic: Electric car: The Future of Automobile Intro Hook: Electric car is the car that use electrical energy instant of fuel that will replace any car in the future. Background: Most of the car in the world still use fuel to run itself that cause of global warming. Someone try to develop the car that run by electrical energy but it’s hard to make it happen and make everyone to use it because it run slower and few distance than normal car. Now a day fuel is more expensive and most making carbon dioxide in human activity [ 1] and electric car is developed enough to run on the road like normal car that we can see on the road. Thesis Statement: The Electric car have several features that make it as the future of every car.
Most car manufacturers today only devote a small part of their product line to electric cars, meaning that they do not want to take the risks of completely changing to electric only cars as fears of reducing the demand for their products is real and because there is still more demand for conventional petrol driven cars. The production process of Tesla’s cars is complicated due to the involvement of complex battery technology in the process of building the car. Tesla’s image consists of creating the car of the future and with this Tesla has to incorporate all the new technologies in the market, that have not yet been supplied by its competitors in standard cars with fuel engines. Tesla’s products consist of three official models. The first model was developed in 2006 and is called the roadster followed by the Model S, which was introduced in 2008 and the latest
“Nuclear power will help provide the electricity that our growing economy needs without increasing emissions. This is truly an environmentally responsible source of energy.” Michael Burgess Prior to the introduction of nuclear energy, fossil fuel was thought to be the only available source in producing energy. Although fossil fuel, such as coal, petroleum, and natural gas, contains high energy value, it produces too many harmful byproducts that ultimately pollute our environment. With the rising concerns over global warming as more and more greenhouse gases accumulate in our Earth’s atmosphere, many voice such opinions that new alternative, yet sustainable method must be adopted to produce energy. Nuclear energy is one of the several alternative energy sources that have been introduced ever since.
Hybrid vehicles, or more specifically hybrid-electric cars, have been the centre of debate since the premier models made their debut back in the 1990s. Environmental activists have been quick to advocate the perks in terms of reduced emissions of greenhouse gases. On the other hand, critiques argue if the costly hybrid technology is worth the savings in fuel cost over the long-haul. Hybrid vehicles use two or more distinct power sources that work in tandem in order to create power. While there is a wide assortment of vehicles that run on hybrid power sources today, cars enjoy the most popularity among consumers.
Volkswagen is building car engines with faulty defeat devices. These devices help control how much gas is released from the car at one time. Laura Allen, the Deputy Press Secretary at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency states, “VW’s illegal defeat devices have resulted in thousands of tons of excess NOx emissions in California, a state where more than 12 million people live in areas that exceed air quality standards set to protect public health” (4). Volkswagen has produced cheaper defeat devices hoping to save money, but they have broken the law and polluted the air in the process. However, Volkswagen is not the only one disregarding the Clean Air Act amendment of 1990.
An electric car on the other hand needs to have its battery recharged with electricity, and as anyone who has ever recharged a battery at any size can attest that this is not an instant process. Effort is being poured into optimising this charging process but the fact is that with current technologies, it takes longer than fuelling a petroleum car. Estimates of how long, vary wildly depending on the battery, the source and charging methods but the general charging time seems to be between 4-8 hours1,2. While some charging estimates go as low as twenty minutes2 this is usually at the expense of the battery’s long term stability or something similar that would make it unfeasible for everyday use. The fact that recharging an electronic car is a process measured in hours means that the average consumer will be far more dependent on the range of a single charge.
“Why Electric Cars are the Future” Introduction Attention Getter: It was Sunday at park, two college students were discussing about cars. One of them said that imagine about two decades ago, it appeared there was no effective alternative to the gasoline and oil, but now there is a better, cleaner, and more effective substitute to them: electricity. Although electric engines are not so widespread, more and more people consider changing their gasoline-fueled vehicles to electric cars. Then I discovered why electric cars are the future. Reveal Topic: The electric car is a relatively new concept in the world of the automotive industry.
(Chandler, 2013) Customers have greater access to products so they can choose between, for example, a cheap more polluting car and a more expensive non-polluting car. Also, there is more competition so Tesla needs to distinguish itself from other companies by focusing on CSR. An emerging force that may reshape CSR in the future might be climate change. In order to diminish climate change as much as possible, corporate social responisibility is very important. Companies should think about less polluting products and production processes for
In 2005, 140 countries signed a treaty to reduce their country’s greenhouse-gas emissions (Source A). There are numerous ways to go about this but the best option is to use more renewable resources. The main cause of global warming is CO2 gas being released into the atmosphere and almost 75% of that gas comes from breaking down fossil fuels (Source A). Using renewable resources in place of the fossil fuels would be cleaner and lead to less gas being released into the atmosphere. With technology growing like it is today, finding different ways to use cleaner resources should be easier than ever before.
When we took the car to the shop the next day we found out that there was a circuit board error that involved the battery. Another reason I do not think that driverless cars are the future of America is that the price of the cars are $60,000 and above. Cars are already super expensive and one thing we do not need is dealerships
