9781422000410: 2005 Complete Guide to Automotive and Motor Vehicle Fuel Economy, Cars, Pickup Trucks, Sport Utility Vehicles (SUVs), Vans, Gas Mileage Data and ... Hybrid Cars and Electric Vehicles (DVD-ROM)

This important and up-to-date electronic book on DVD-ROM provides a comprehensive guide to government information on automotive and motor vehicle fuel economy, including cars, pickup trucks, sport utility vehicles (SUVs), vans, gas mileage data and comparisons, buying guide, energy savings and performance data, greenhouse gas emission reductions, CAFE standards, hybrid cars and electric vehicles. Contents include: EPA Fuel Economy Guides by Brand and Model, with current and historical data; EPA ratings for greenhouse gas emissions and data on green vehicles. EPA and Department of Energy (DOE) produce the Fuel Economy Guide to help car buyers choose the most fuel-efficient vehicle that meets their needs. Each vehicle in the guide has two fuel economy estimates. City represents urban driving, in which a vehicle is started in the morning (after being parked all night) and driven in stop and- go rush hour traffic. Highway represents a mixture of rural and interstate highway driving in warmed-up vehicles, typical of longer trips in freeflowing traffic. EPA miles-per-gallon (MPG) estimates are based on lab testing and are adjusted to reflect real-world driving conditions for an average U.S. motorist. Vehicles are tested in the same manner to allow fair comparisons. A vehicle's fuel economy is not a constant or fixed number; it varies among vehicles of the same make and mod! el, and it will vary over time for an individual vehicle. * Alternative Fuel vehicles * Advanced Technologies * Gas Mileage Tips * Crash Test Results * EPA Office of Transportation and Air Quality * National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) CAFE Standards data, studies and legislation (Corporate Standard Fuel Economy). Department of Energy Hybrid Car and Hybrid Electric Vehicle Side-by-Side Comparisons, How Hybrids Work, Tax Incentives, DOE Hybrid Electric Vehicle Research Program * Information on current models, including Toyota Prius, Honda Insight, Honda Civic, Chevy Silverado, Ford Escape, and GMC Sierra. Hybrids combine the best features of the internal combustion engine with an electric motor and can significantly improve fuel economy without sacrificing performance or driving range. HEVs are primarily propelled by an internal combustion engine, just like conventional vehicles. However, they also convert energy normally wasted during coasting and braking into electricity, which is stored in a battery until needed by the electric motor.
