There is no getting over the fact we need to seriously consider the way we, the human race, have been damaging the planet. Much of that damage has been done by way of pollution. Fossil fuels that produce harmful greenhouse gases have caused irreparable harm. Used for a century and more in all types of vehicles, petrol and diesel – along with coal and oil – have been responsible for this rampant devastation to our environment
But in recent years there has been a concerted effort to move away from fossil fuels towards alternative energy sources. Wind and solar power are widely used in many countries for the generation of electricity. When it comes to vehicles, however, the need to rely on battery power has been a limiting factor since the dawn of the automobile.
