Many reviewers who conducted the test car was found that this car the feeling of a German car, like maybe Jetta Volkswagen or Audi.
Avnet Express and UBM Electronics have joined together to launch a campaign called Drive for Innovation. The purpose of the campaign is to highlight innovations in the electric vehicle field. Brian Fuller, Editorial Director of EE times, will travel all across the country seeking out innovative people, products and companies. Brian will visit everything from smaller enthusiastic student projects to larger Automotive companies R&D departments and industry events such as ESC Silicon Valley and ESC Boston
Brian will blog and upload videos on www.driveforinnovation.com.
There will also be an completion with weekly prices and with an a brand new electric car as the grand prize.
The Drive for innovation road trip will include
* and more

Did you know that the Jets could soon be running on coal. Liquid fuels from coal derived, may well replace the fuel in the future. Unlike conventional fuel, the coal-related can not for the formation of coke, a solid residue, fuel systems and engine damage driving record. The fuel can also heat resistant to 500 degrees Celsius, allowing aircraft to operate at high speed. And because its reserves are more abundant, this fuel also promises to be there for much longer.
Natural gas, primarily methane is the cleanest of all fossil fuels. His only complete combustion are carbon dioxide and water vapor, unlike coal and oil, pollutants such as nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, soot and the release of sulfur dioxide. Its environmental impact is very low, making it a very good source of energy. If an oil reservoir is discovered, some natural gas is usually on top or dissolved in oil. This is known as associated gas.
There are a number of hybrid cars on the market. Some of the most popular models are the Honda Civic Hybrid, Honda Accord Hybrid, Toyota Prius, Toyota Camry Hybrid and Ford Escape Hybrid. As a result, the environmentally conscious, many more hybrids enter the market, and more cars. Now hybrid trucks and SUV hybrids are becoming very popular.
There are alternatives to gasoline or diesel engine, available for the average consumer, looking for a new vehicle. Becoming a hybrid car is much more popular recently. A hybrid car is one that works on more than one fuel system. The hybrid combines the most common fossil fuels by electricity. These cars are mainly gasoline, but due to the passage of electric current through a rechargeable nickel metal hydride (NiMH) battery powered supports. With this combination of fuel systems, there are two positive results, the improved fuel economy and emissions are cut.
Is it really green earth? You bet. The environment is coughing and spitting all the poisons we put into, and most of what thousands of manufacturers around the world. Emissions of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere are eaten, and it can repair hundreds of thousands of years. The new century brings new ideas to help our planet recover from this wave of air pollution and water. Automotive emission control is a way to start “going green” and the BMW Mini is on the forefront of this global economy.
When we talk or think about electric cars in general, most people think, how it will be difficult to keep the car is charging. The Mini comes with a 220-volt charger that gives the vehicle a quick way to recharge in three to four hours. Another detail that is often discussed is the velocity and acceleration of the Mini E. Reporter Jack Ewing consumption Bloomberg says the speed is from 00 to 60 in the Mini E is only less than 8.5 seconds. It’s impressive when the gas-powered Mini takes 7.2 seconds to get 60 miles per hour.
Did you know there was such a thing as natural gas (CNG) vehicle? The United States has only about 150,000 more than 12.7 million CNG vehicles in the world. Although the number is small, these vehicles are much more popular, especially in the bus industry truck and transit.
In developing countries, it has an effort to convert liquid NG CNG. A majority of underdeveloped countries the use of LNG for use in vehicles of more than GNC. LNG can be transported more easily because it is compressed by cooling to about -162 ° C (-260 ° F). This compresses the gas to about 1/600th the volume of its gaseous state.
