BMW Hybrid Car: German Engineering Brilliance and Elegance fitted with
Revolutionary Hybrid Technology, A combination of Style and Performance
Joining the number of Car manufacturers that have been concerned for the
growing demand for environment friendly cars, German car manufacturing
giant BMW has announced that they too would soon be producing and selling
Hybrid cars. Within the next four years, BMW will be providing its own
version of the phenomenal and popular hybrid car.
Knowing the many innovations and excellent qualities BMW has contributed
to the motor world, we can be sure that this would be another automotive
engineering breakthrough that would set the par others would follow.
BMW said that their Hybrid car would run on both Hydrogen and petroleum
and this would be first infused in the 7 series BMW. Already, BMW has
some of these cars test driven in different countries. Researchers and
engineers are already staging some tests and are getting feedbacks to
perfect their first hybrid car release. BMW doesn’t want to release just
a beautiful looking car, they want one that will be truly environment
friendly as well as performing beautifully.
Deviating from the usual fuel cells used by other hybrid car
manufacturers, BMW decided on using hydrogen-fuel combined with an
internal combustion engine. This led to more research and development
needed because of the demand of the engine to keep the hydrogen in liquid
form, and this poses as a problem in keeping them cold enough to do just
that. If the engine becomes too hot, the hydrogen may evaporate requiring
frequent fill ups. Another quandary is keeping the hydrogen from
evaporating while in transit to the engine. But BMW has said that it has
found the solution to this problem.
BMW sees hydrogen as the solution, but it would take about two more
decades before a car can actually be run by hydrogen only. But they are
positive that this is very achievable.
BMW claims that for the past thirty years, they have been developing
technology that could just lead to the first ever pure hydrogen vehicle.
They already have a car that is being powered by water, a car that emits
water vapor at the tailpipe, and are to retrieve hydrogen from sunlight.
BMW has been focusing on Hydrogen as a great power source for cars
because it is the best solution to the ever-worsening emissions from
vehicles that contributes to environmental pollution. This is because
hydrogen doesn’t have dangerous emissions, it poses no harm to the
atmosphere, it doesn’t deplete natural resources, as it can be take from
numerous recyclable sources. This is BMW's solution, powering vehicles
with hydrogen produced from water through the use of solar energy. This
advancement in technology is evident with the BMW 750hl production car
showcased at the Expo 2000. Together with some of its partners, BMW may
be behind in the mass production of Hybrid cars, but they are the
forefront in Hybrid technology.
Soon enough, we will all be the beneficiaries of all of these
developments and innovations. Not only will we able to save up on gas
money, we will also be saving the environment. Owning a Hybrid car
doesn’t have to mean riding in cramped cars with low engine power. With
the unveiling of the BMW hybrid car in the near future, you get
sophistication, power, elegance and style while helping clean up our air.
