The Zero Carbon Car: Green Technology and the Automotive Industry


The Zero Carbon Car: Green Technology and the Automotive Industry Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Zero Carbon Car examines the hundreds of ways in which car manufacturers are trying to reduce our carbon footprint, and the adaptation of the automotive industry to changing technology in a world where environmental issues are becoming ever more prevalent. The book's in-depth research into green car technology shows that manufacturers make concerted efforts, but sometimes also defeat the gains of their innovation.

Topics covered include:

What is meant by the terms "global warming"and "green," and how these can be defined

An account of the long history of green automotive technology

Alternative fuels, including diesel and hydrogen

Developments in environmentally friendly engine technology

Electric cars

Environmental issues in material usage and car body manufacture.

About the Author

Brian Long is a professional writer with more than sixty books to his name, almost exclusively dealing with motoring history.  Brian is perhaps an unusual author for a title concerned with the automotive industry and environmental issues; he comes from an engineering background, has a love of motorsport and has owned several "gas-guzzling" vehicles. In this book, he offers a refreshingly balanced perspective with a crucial underlying assumption - that cars are here to stay.
