Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

As more and more alternative-fuel cars from major auto makers enter the market, and with gasoline prices continuing to soar, "clean" cars are no longer being relegated to side-show status; they're taking center stage.

Forward Drive presents the fascinating story of the race to build greener cars—ones that can help address the problems that have accompanied the rise and spread of traditional gas-powered vehicles. The book traces the history of automobile development, including early attempts to create practical electric vehicles, and explores new technologies for clean cars, especially gas/electric hybrid drives and hydrogen fuel cells. In his research, Jim Motavalli conducted extensive interviews with "early adopters" of alternative vehicles, energy researchers, and key auto-industry figures, giving us a clear picture of how U.S. and foreign auto makers are getting serious about building greener cars. With his passion for automobiles and knowledge of their history and workings, he presents an insightful, informative, and highly readable book.
