The automotive industry is definitely changing now that there is a revitalized resurgence in environment awareness.
Hybrids are rated as SULEVs (Super Low Emission Vehicles). The range of gasoline/electric hybrids is not limited and they can get outstanding mileage by using an engine and a generator together with one or more energy storage devices such as batteries. Under the control of on board computers, hybrids can use battery-only power for low speeds, or combine battery and engine power for acceleration, such as for hill climbing. Under long-range travel, the engine operates a generator to re-charge the batteries and drive the vehicle. The engine stops and vehicle inertia runs the generator for battery re-charging in down-hill, or braking situations, resulting in additional fuel efficiency.
Currently, hybrid-electrics are a popular choice, getting 70 mpg and more. We hope for tremendous breaking news in other alternative fuel options in the near future.
