9781422000427: 21st Century Complete Guide to Electric Cars and Hybrid Vehicles: Department of Energy and EPA Comparisons, Toyota Prius, Honda Insight, How Hybrids ... Greenhouse Gas Emission Reductions (DVD-ROM)

This important and up-to-date electronic book on DVD-ROM provides a comprehensive guide to government information on electric cars, hybrid cars and green vehicles, designed to reduce fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. According to automakers, consumers who care about fuel economy will have a dozen hybrid cars and trucks to choose from within the next few years. They 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. The electric motor is used to assist the engine when accelerating or hill climbing and in low-speed driving conditions where internal combustion engines are least! efficient. Some HEVs also automatically shut off the engine when the vehicle comes to a stop and restart it when the accelerator is pressed. Unlike all-electric vehicles, HEVs now being offered do not need to be plugged into an external source of electricity to be recharged; conventional gasoline and regenerative braking provide all the energy the vehicle needs. Contents include: 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. EPA Fuel Economy Guides by Brand and Model, with current and historical data; EPA ratings for greenhouse gas emissions and data on green vehicles * 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).

The files can be accessed from the File Explorer in the same way that you open files from a CD-ROM disc; the CD-ROM and DVD-ROM formats are functionally the same, but the DVD has more than six times greater storage capacity.
