Wind, Water, Solar? The Future of Cars May Be Brighter Than We Think
Sustainability frequently surfaces in the news as the world looks to the best and brightest to solve our most critical problems. The overarching theme of all these problems: powering the machines we so desperately need to keep our world operating while being mindful of the environment. This article will focus on emerging technologies that transportation can look forward to as we focus on becoming a greener planet.
Electric Vehicles: On the Rise?
Companies like Tesla and Lucid Motors are taking the electric vehicle (EV) market by storm. They have made it their mission to provide the general public with affordable vehicles that create less of a carbon footprint.
There is a huge demand for renewable energy vehicles. It’s no wonder that Tesla motors have more than doubled their vehicle deliveries from Q2 2018 to Q3 2018 with further growth shown in Q4.
What Can Consumers Expect?
More gadgets, gizmos, and engines bordering the fantasy worlds we’ve dreamt about. We’re talking hydrogen fuel-cell cars, of which fueling stations are already being set up in Germany, as well as solar-powered EVs.
Renewable energy vehicles are the way of the future, that much is easy to see. Our fossil fuels will deplete far sooner than they will replenish, not to mention how inefficient our drilling and transportation practices are.
It’s only a matter of time before fossil fuel vehicles are distant relics of the past. A past where we put the focus of our money before the focus of our planet.
In The Meantime
The world will have to adjust to EVs, but it may not take as long as you may think. The Toyota Prius already uses solar energy to power its AC and every time vehicles like the Impreza and Murano get new additions added to their features.
This is a loose correlation, yet it seems obvious to me that the road will soon be driven by vehicles that can communicate with each other so as to eliminate the need for a driver at all. This is from an assumption that computers will be able to drive safer and more efficiently than people, especially when working in unison.
At this point, we will be able to minimize the risk of collisions to virtually nothing — pivoting our focal point from that of driver safety to that of driving efficiency.
This will be a special period in time where the world will look on as new plateaus are reached in the world of renewable energy.
The future looks bright on the path we are currently heading. Growing support from thought leaders and influencers has kept the focus on being environmentally conscious in all of our endeavors
EVs are here and here to stay. Whether they are powered by wind, hydrogen, or solar, the future
looks green — and electric.
