Technology today has reached new heights. One of the important reasons of such advancement is the environment. Due to the rapid degradation of the environment and the immediate need to convert into alternate forms of energy which can be judiciously used without compromising on the resources of Earth, such advances towards newer and better technologies are taking place. The result of one such research and findings is the gas to electric car conversion. In many science fairs one must have come across this dream of the scientific minds that one day cars can run on electricity and not on petrol or diesel. This very notion has been studied in greater depth and truly enough scientists have discovered cars which can run on electricity and not on petrol or diesel. Such cars have many advantages and this article would provide a greater knowledge about such vehicles which have undergone gas to electric car conversion.
Electric cars and how they work
A very important and logical question that might come to any persons mind after hearing about electric cars would be how electric cars work? It is a very apt and logical question. While there are many cars which work by absorbing solar energy which is used to produce electricity in the car due to the solar to electric energy conversion mechanisms fitted inside the car; there are many cars which work simply on the basis of the shock absorbers fixed inside the cars. How electric cars work can be best answered by studying the mechanisms and the recurring development of technologies which are being implemented on different models of such electric cars.
Advantages of electric cars
As of 2014 electric cars have been most commonly called as hybrid cars. There are various reasons of calling it hybrid but most often than not it is called so because of the fact that it is a product of the combination of electricity and all material requirements of a normal car. But, as in biology, hybrids have their own advantages, similarly here too such hybrid cars have their own advantages. Some of the benefits of such electric cars are:
- These cars run on electricity and do not cause air pollution which has its steady sources in petrol and diesel driven cars.
- Petrol and diesel are by products of non-renewable sources of energy and would deplete one day or the other. Thus using electric cars would help as electricity can be produced through renewable sources of energy as well and have a guarantee of a lifetime.
- Being a product of advancement in the alternative form of energy it is actually an asset in the hands of a country. It becomes the index to measure the scientific superiority of a country and the environmental stability of the country.
- Such cars require low maintenance than diesel or petrol driven car and can sustain itself for a longer period of time.
Hence, in 2014 electric cars would multiply and be even thrown open for people to purchase them for the good of the society and the environment in which they live in.
