Electric Vehicles

Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicles *PHEVs) are not a dream anymore

The topic “global warming” may be unpleasant for some people. However taking action to stop air polluting could be a pleasant thing to do for anyone. What can you and I do to help?

A few years ago, General Motors started making the electric vehicle. It was called the (EV1). The reader knows well what I am talking about. They did not sale the cars in the beginning. They wanted to test it first by leasing it out. The car was a beauty. Then all of sudden without giving any explanation to the public, General Motors terminated the leases and went ahead and destroyed the EVE1s. I never knew why they did such a thing, but they did it. The reason could have been “jobs”, or the oil companies had something to do in stopping the EV1 distribution. The fact is that I still am a gasoline junkie until now.

Now General Motors will manufacture Hybrid Plug-in cars again. Oh yes… that is like music to my ears. Driving a PHEV is like navigating in two cars at the same time. One auto powered by fuel and one powered by electricity to be plugged for re-charge in your garage every night. Isn’t it great?

But… it may happen that the oil companies will intervene again. You know, it is not nice to loose a profitable business. It is so profitable indeed. Mobil alone reported something like 29 and a half billion Dollars profit in 2006, the equivalent to about 4 million Dollars earnings per hour. There are trillions of Dollars yet to be made from here till the end of the oil reserves. But I say; the exploitation of fossil fuel has to stop now or there will be no clean air for our great grand children.

My gut feelings tell me that hybrid-plug in automobile will sell like hotcakes. If these features don’t catch your attention what will?
* You’ll pay at the pump less than $1.00/gallon. If you do the math on the mpg, you’ll come up with about 78 cents a gallon. Isn’t it great?
* Your vehicle could become 100% clean, if you use American made ethanol (already offered at the pump in Central America and other parts of the world) instead of gas.
* You are contributing to reduce America’s dependence on foreign oil. This fact will make you a proud individual.
* And that is not all… Most people will spend 0 gallons of gas every week recharging the batteries overnight. Most of us work 30 miles or less from home; and because one charge will take you to a distance of 60 miles average, your weekly traveling will cost you almost 0 cash.
* What about safety? You may ask. Relax, you may continue driving the same size of vehicle you are used to, hybrid plug-ins will be built in all sizes. Car manufacturers can make SUVs, vans, buses and more.
* What’s more, the vehicle could be as fast as any gas propelled automobile. Let’s remember that the fastest trains in existence today are powered by electricity.
