"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.
