Aston Martin Lagonda

The Aston Martin Lagonda Concept celebrates 100 years of car production under the Lagonda brand, a stunning contemporary evolution of this evocative name.

The modern Lagonda marries functionalism with luxury, through organic forms, rich materials and complex surfaces. The car is based on an advanced platform that is tailored to accommodate a broad range of future powertrains, including flexfuel, low emission diesel and hybrid systems.

The Aston Martin Lagonda Concept is a four-seat international tourer, an avant-garde luxury car that draws inspiration from the brand's illustrious past as well as the visual language of speedboat design, the spacious individualist environment of the upper class cabin and the bespoke feel of contemporary modern furniture. Inside, the four generous seats are divided into two zones, front and rear. The result is a relaxed, rich environment that envelops you in warm, tactile materials.

Run Hybrid Cars for a Clean and Green Environment

In basic Science lessons, the emergence of global warming is due to many factors we constantly penalize to the environment. The chain reaction has come into its obvious persistence by just merely observing what people do to damage the planet Earth. Some people might be aware or even unaware of their contributions to the eventual destruction of the environment. Global warming is undoubtedly an indication of a battered world. Environmental issues actively participate in daily news that some people and organizations do something to repel the worst case scenario but outnumbering these concerned citizens are people who do not care to fight the bout between restoration and annihilation.

Hybrid cars are recognized to be one of the most innovative yet environment friendly creations of technology. The revolutionized and intricately planned design has given hybrid cars a global reputation in helping construct a safer and cleaner environment. Even though hybrid cars are not capable of directly healing Mother Nature, their usage is a big help in minimizing the possibility of global destruction.

Pollution has long been a diversified issue causing global warming. This detrimental factor is brought about by the long standing exposure of the environment to hazards such as vehicular smoke. Since more and more people feel the need to have their own cars as primary necessity, more and more cars are purchased and run in the streets. The pile up of the production results to a strangling clouds of smoke pollution accumulated in the air, and thus causing global warming in long term basis. The continuity of this scenario can be most lethal in the future.

However, as global warming begins to take its toll, there are still many ways wherein we can create a safer environment for the future generations. A simple and concrete way of caring for the nature is an enormous contribution. You do not need to be an environmentalist to grab the essence. You must just be fully aware of the factors which can directly or even indirectly affect the natural flow and condition of the environment.

More over, hybrid cars are not just genius creations in protecting the environment. A hybrid car can also help the shallow breathing economy. As we all know, fuel prices are choking our budget. Their sudden upsurge due to the downturn of the economy is a heavy load to Calvary. Maintaining our cars by feeding them with gasoline everyday is a big overhead. For some people, who have previously owned a car but are not able to sustain the maintenance, would just sell their cars and turn as public commuters. Some would just even sacrifice walking if they really are crunching financially. But for some people who have the budget to buy cars, it is highly recommended that they must consider hybrid cars instead of non hybrid ones. Hybrid cars are really expensive but the quality absolutely matches the tag! The price indicates the unique and healthy features of hybrid cars instead of being presented as a luxury possession.

Mitsubishi signs MoU with Vancouver for testing of i MiEV electric vehicle

Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) subsidiary Mitsubishi Motors Sales of Canada (MMSCAN) yesterday signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Government of British Colombia, the City of Vancouver, power company BC Hydro, and Mitsubishi Canada Limited for feasibility testing of the zero-emissions i MiEV*1 electric vehicle.
Under the terms of the agreement, one car would be added to BC Hydro's fleet of vehicles and one to the City of Vancouver's fleet for demonstration and evaluation purposes. The agreement also allows for the addition of more cars as they become available.

"Electric cars are part of the sustainable transportation solution for British Columbia and I am pleased that the i MiEV will make its Canadian debut in Vancouver," said Environment Minister Barry Penner. "By looking at new, innovative technologies, we can work toward achieving our goal of reducing greenhouse gas emission by 33 per cent by 2020."

"I'm thrilled that Vancouver gets to debut the i MiEV," said Mayor Gregor Robertson. "We want to make Vancouver the greenest city in the world, and supporting this early adoption of plug-in electric cars is one way that Vancouver is becoming a leader in green technology. Electric vehicles are an important way to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions when combined with improvements to transit, biking and walking."

Announced in October 2006, the i MiEV represents the pinnacle of Mitsubishi Motors' green technologies. Currently involved in testing and promotional activities in Japan, New Zealand, Australia, the United States and across Europe, the i MiEV will be launched in Japan during the summer of 2009.

Electric Car Conversion

Do your own electric car conversion, I know this sounds difficult, but you are not building a new car from the ground up. What you are actually doing is converting your current gas auto into an electric powered car. With todays modern technology it is really not not that hard to do, and can be accomplished in a few days of work. Is it really possible to do this? Plenty of people would consider building an electric go-kart or ATV, but an electric car conversion is really just the same process. Sure, you will be using welders instead of pre-made plastic parts, but you've got an electric motor, a bank of batteries, and a speed controller. Look at your kids RC toys--it's the same thing just on a larger scale. Here is a list of the basic equipment you will need to do an electric car conversion
Work space area
Work bench
Basic tool kit - wrenches, socket set, screw drivers
Small grinder
An engine hoist
Welding equipment
A big pile of initiative

Electric motors are quieter, safer, more reliable, and more cost effective than gasoline powered engines. Electric vehicles motors do not idle, so they don't waste electricity when idle, unlike gasoline cars which are using gas and polluting the air even when thet are sitting still. Since electric motors are powered by electricity, their power can come from a wide variety of power sources, their batteries can be charged with wind or solar power, which can also be home built, reducing your energy use to zero. Even on today's electrical grid, plug-in cars are cleaner than gasoline cars. Even better, while electricity is getting cleaner and more renewable every year, even the cleanest gasoline car still keeps adding to pollution. An electric car on the other hand, just gets cleaner over time as the grid gets cleaner.

Lastly, to convert an existing vehicle into an electric is also quite easy on one's pocket as it can be done for under $500. So if you are thinking about building your own electric car, you will need a well written professional manual with clear illustrations to guide you through theprocess, and in a short time you will have your homemade electric car ready and running!

Jaguar XF Coming to India

Last year, Tata Motors acquired two of the world's most prestigious auto brands - Jaguar and Land Rover. Both the entities were loss making units for Ford until the company finally sold it off to Tata Motors. However, the tables seemed to have turned after a year of the sale. Although sales figures for Land Rover have dipped and gas-guzzling SUVs are no longer in demand, Jaguar has picked up its past glory once again.
Jaguar is expected to be profitable soon and the new Jaguar XF has been welcomed by the luxury car buyers. Jaguar XF sedan possesses clear deviation from its traditional design and has been well-received by the customers. The long sporty look with a new set of engines to complements the sleek new design. These engines were developed by Ford but Tata Motors seems to reap its rewards now. The new Jaguar XF now carries 515 bhp 5.0 litre V8 engine which has replaced the old 4.2-litre V8 of XF. The new XF model has helped Jaguar to put the sales figures back on track.

Now Tata Motors intends to bring the revolutionary XF sedan to India along with Land Rover to serve Indian customers an ultimate taste of luxury, speed and design.

One of the most popular car questions about the Hyundai i20, is whether it comes in diesel.
