Green Alternative for Gasoline and Diesel Cars

​There is a push with automakers to have the greenest vehicles around. There are many advances in technology that allow cars to get better fuel consumption than ever.

However, it can always be better. There are limitations that are associated with each of the "green" vehicle choices. But, there are also many, many positives to each as well.

Take the electric car for example. There is no fuel consumption at all, even though the car can only go in short bursts before it runs out of energy. So, long trips are out of the question.

The electric car is limited to how fast it can go. Its top speed may only be 60 MPH. This seems pathetic, especially when you take into account that petrol powered vehicles can go much faster than that. However, there is instant power to the wheels because there is no gasoline engine that has to rev up in an electric car. This may help make up for the lack of a high top speed.

The recharging time associated with an electric car can make some people cringe. It may take several hours to recharge a battery pack like the ones found on electric cars. However, when you think about how technology is constantly paving the way to the future of the automobile, you realize that it is just a matter of time before they nail recharging and driving at the same time.

Each "green" car has its own positives and negatives, but with dwindling crude oil supplies, the wave of the future is the "green" car. It's just a matter of time before our electric cars will be recharged by a never-ending power supply. Namely, the sun.
