Slide 1: GROUP 11: MARIE ACOSTA ANTONIO CONYERS FRANKLIN PARKS Slide 2: HYBRID CAR (hahy-brid kahr) n : an automobile with more than one power source, such as an electric motor and internal combustion engine or an electric motor with battery and fuel cells for energy storage. Slide 3: Compared to the Hummer H3 model, the Toyota Prius has an estimated 48 mpg in the city & 45 mpg on the highway. The Hummer has an estimated 14 mpg in the city & 18 mpg on the highway. Slide 4: Cars that consume very little mpg , like the Hummer, increase the amount of greenhouse gas emissions, like carbon dioxide, present in our environment. Slide 6: Cars that burn fossil fuels such as gasoline emit toxic byproducts and greenhouse gases into the atmosphere while they are powered. Slide 8: Hybrid Cars release a small quantity of emissions during low speed city driving and traffic jams. Slide 9: According to David Friedman, a research director for the Clean Vehicles Program at the Union of Concerned Scientists, “If every new car and truck in America used [second generation] Prius-like technology, we could more than double the fuel economy of our vehicles and save nearly three times more oil than we currently import from the Persian gulf by 2020.” Slide 10: A hybrid car cuts emissions by 25% to 35% over even the most fuel efficient gas powered models. Slide 12: What’s in store for our eco-friendly future? Slide 13: The brand new hybrid car from Honda: 2010 Insight. Slide 14: Future Hybrid Cars Slide 15: Experts believe that hybrids are a transition technology. Hydrogen or methane fuel cell powered cars are most likely the cars of the future. As for the environment, there are several ways that people can decrease emissions. For example, people can buy a smaller, fuel efficient car, use public transport, car pool, ride a bike, and the simplest of them all - walking.
