Alternative cars in the 21st century :a new personal transportation paradigm Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Argues that tinkering with the design of existing automobiles has not and can not reduce fuel consumption, traffic congestion, and pollution fast enough to keep up with growing population and demand and shrinking resources. Instead, the entire concept of personal transportation must be rethought. Considers smaller cars, alternative fuels, electric and hybrid cars, three- wheelers, safety, and the current situation in Europe. Accessible to general readers.
