Automotive Manufacturing: Follow-up

hydrogenEarlier in the week, Zintro experts responded to an article in Global Manufacturing Magazine, which discussed how the automotive industry has become increasingly competitive as manufacturers battle for positions in local and international markets. One way manufacturers have attempted to differentiate themselves is with electric cars (e-cars).

Hemant Pawar specializes in automotive project management. He responds to the conversation. “Electric vehicles (EVs) have no tailpipe emissions. Replacing conventional vehicles with EVs can help improve roadside air quality and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. A wider use of EVs also contributes to the development of environmental industries. Another important advantage of battery-powered motors over gas-powered engines is the lower cost of the fuel — that is, electricity for EVs and gas for the internal combustion engines.”

At last week’s L.A. Auto Show, Toyota and Honda announced plans to release hydrogen fuel cell vehicles. These vehicles can travel up to 300 miles on a full tank and can refuel in five minutes. In addition, the exhaust from hydrogen fuel cell vehicles is water vapor. Unfortunately there are not enough fueling stations at the moment, although that is expected to change. Stay tuned for a look at what experts have to say about these hydrogen fuel cell vehicles coming soon.
