Like most rideshare drivers, I don't use rideshare as my primary source of income (other than a brief stint between jobs), but rather as a supplement. It gets me out of the house, earns a (very little) bit of money, introduces me to new people, and helps me explore my city and larger area.
With the rising cost of gasoline, more people than ever are turning to vehicles that use alternative sources of fuel. The advanced technology and improved efficiency of electric batteries have occurred at just the right time. Many feel that there has never been a better time than the present to look into buying an electric vehicle.
One morning over hot coffee, I hopped on the VW website to look at the Golf Alltrack. My parents suggested it because it would be perfect for transporting two big dogs. It would also be great for Canadian winters. On the home page of the VW site at the time was a giant banner showing an e-Golf. It was a complete surprise that VW is selling an all-electric car. I clicked on the link and fell in love. One thing led to another. Within a couple of weeks, we test drove one at the Guelph VW dealership and ordered mine the same day.
Tesla made electric cars cool, but there’s still a lot they need to do. Welcome to WatchMojo.com, and today, we’re counting down our picks for the "Top 5 Things We Want to See From Tesla in the Future."
“If you can park it and not look back at it as you’re walking away, you bought the wrong truck.”—Unknown. I believe that diesels aren't just for men, but for everyone. Everyone should be out there driving diesels and only diesels. I believe it's time we finally get rid of all those pesky energy saving cars such as the Prius. Not only are Prius drivers slow, their cars always smell. I have evidence for this claim. Every time I get into one at work, they smell like old battery acid and lonely men. In order to make the roads less wimpy, we need to make these pathetic cars illegal.
Electric cars are now starting to take over the markets, with charging stations appearing in major cities across America. Elon Musk and his Tesla cars have begun to be one of the biggest status symbols people can have—as has the Nissan Leaf and other hybrid cars.
EV is abbreviated from electric vehicle. These are cars that run solely on electricity. There are other abbreviations that are hybrid vehicles with both electric and a combustible engine to run the car, having the ability to charge with a lead, there are also hybrids out there that cannot be charged via a charging lead and will use the engine to charge the batteries. Hybrid vehicles are becoming more popular as they do help the environment and also keeping the range up to get to any destination you require, without stress of finding a place to charge so often. The range is getting better on all the new electric vehicles as are the makes and models with exceptional designs.
These new luxurious electric cars are exactly what you picture when imagining the vehicle of the future. Stepping into one is like jumping forward in time 100 years.
Electric cars have been receiving a lot of praise for many reasons. The main one, of course, is that it is a greener option as compared to standard PUC emission cars. These options tend to be less harmful to the environment as opposed to others whose carbon emissions are higher. Major brands are now trying to come out with electric car options to please the growing market and to also do their bit to help out the environment.
The popularity of the electric car is great than ever. Who would have thought that an entirely electrical car would be a practical option for the everyday commute? Most manufacturers are coming out with rival options for the growing desires of the consumer.
About a month ago my boyfriend and I had the opportunity to test drive a Tesla. The car belonged to one of our good friends after we test drove the car we decided to look into what makes the car work. As we were test driving the car we noticed that the engine made no sound, there are no gears in a Tesla making the ride smooth and quiet. The car can go from slow to outstandingly fast in a matter of seconds, The increase in speed is caused by the lack of gears making it accelerate at an impressive state.
YouTube has been showing me ads for Karma Automotive for the past few days. So I decided to take a look.
