Tradition Vs technology: Petrol and Electronic cars
Ever since Clive Sinclair invented the impractical, totally unsafe and yet small and mobile 'personal car', labeled the C5, inventors have wrestled with the concept of making vehicular travel greener, less expensive, and far less reliant on oil.
Hence the introduction of the electronic car. They first came along as expensive, very unreliable and also as hybrids, petrol and electronic. Electronic cars faced many challenges, not least the fact that the batteries ran out, the cars could not cover long distances and recharging them posed problems.
However now, with the invention from Tesla, electronic cars are facing a new dawn. They are sleek, quiet, economic and reliable.
If you think through the challenges that this invention has faced, then please appreciate that new technology has been able to master them all.
The market will go to the most economic offering aware of reliability. If the product is unreliable then however much cheaper it is, there is no point buying. As soon as the electronic car could travel distance and not require constant charging then the electronic version of vehicular travel was born. A new age.
This in time could change the political landscape as the world becomes far less reliant on oil. Less reliance on the Middle East, less fighting over oil fields, their supply and a greener landscape is our future.
One of the most interesting concepts of the new electronic age are the charging points, where the cars refuel or put simpler, recharge. These you will notice are evident in many motorway service stations. It enables the driver to recharge their battery, to plan their journey and to never be out of 'juice '. Once you buy your electronic car you fit these at home, so long gone are the days of standing by a pump and filling with petrol or diesel. You will recharge overnight while you are asleep, the petrol stations will lose their market for fuel and other goods.
The new style cars are sleek, fast and supremely quiet and efficient. This market can only grow as tax advantages are placed on using these vehicles.
We are due a decade of change in this area, much more invention to come........!
Even now in the US inventors are trying out driverless cars! Drive carefully!
