For most drivers, the words “fuel efficiency” aren’t the first to pop into mind when we hear about the latest supercar. From Porsche to McLaren, supercar brands are normally associated with astronomical fuel consumption, and for good reason.
Today we go to a radical change in the auto industry. Electric cars become more common, as well as hybrid cars. Energy-efficient transportation technologies such as electric batteries are rapidly improving. Diesel cars are back and the technological advances make them far better than ever. The cutting edge technology and efficiency improvements make even the internal-combustion gasoline engine better than before. The increasing fuel economy standards imposed by the government, the environmental concerns and the rising gas prices make the demand for green cars strong.
If you are in a car crash in Dallas or somewhere else in Texas, then you are going to be able to collect damages if the other driver was at fault. However, if the other party was negligent, then you are likely to be able to get additional punitive damages. This is because their behavior was reckless and therefore additional penalties are needed to discourage others from committing similar acts.
Dump trucks are essential in a number of industries, including aggregates, construction and waste disposal. Depending on the spec, these vehicles can range in price, from the affordable to the budget-busting. At a time when businesses and state departments are looking to tighten their spending commitments, these purchases are now being viewed through a more price-sensitive lens.
Every year, millions of people learn to drive for the first time. Unlike twenty years ago, the environmental damage of motoring is now well established, leading to marked changes in behavior from those conscious of their environmental responsibility. Even from the outset, new motorists are now increasingly aware of how and what they drive, with a view to minimizing their individual contribution to global warming. Through choosing a more economical vehicle and driving in a more fuel-cautious way, it is possible to lessen the impact of each car trip you make.
Car and vehicle sales rooms are often among the toughest businesses to market. Many of the individuals and businesses that choose to buy cars, vans and other vehicles will make a decision at the time. For business owners, it isn’t enough to leave that to chance – you want to devise ways to market to your business and retail customers all year round. Promotional calendars are used extensively in the vehicle sales industry, in order to ensure a constant presence in the office or desk environment. But how can car salesrooms maximize this advantage to sell more vehicles, and in particular those with lower emissions?
Electric and hybrid engines are primarily known for their economy and green credentials, but in truth they aren’t the first things that spring to mind when someone mentions supercars. Perhaps that’s all about to change. If you’re going to build an electric supercar, then it certainly helps to have your own private racing team and a great set of contacts. Lord Drayson has both. He used to be a minister in the UK government until 2010, and now he’s devoting all his efforts to making his electric car go really, really fast.
With fuel prices and concerns from the environment reaching a peak, many motorists are looking for ways to enjoy cheaper, less damaging forms of transport. While cycling, walking and public transport are all very honourable solutions to this problem, for many busy commuters and families, these options are just not practical. Thankfully, Honda seem to have come up with a genuinely workable alternative.
