Building a Cleaner, Greener Battery

Advances in the auto manufacturing industry are happening every day. More and more consumers are looking for the high quality autos that are engineered to run faster, longer, and cleaner. With the environment a major concern in today’s politics, green vehicles are the wave of the future which could benefit our industry as well.

This is obviously big news for all industries as this could impact the engineering of other batteries. Imagine the impact on the environment if large haulers, 18-wheel rigs, and other carriers ran cleaner and more efficient. Brokers, carriers, dealerships, shipment companies and even consumers would all see more green in their pockets! Here’s a run-down of the new technology.

Powered by Oxygen

Toyota and BMW have joined forces to work on a new generation of batteries for green vehicles.
The new lithium-air battery is expected to be much more powerful and longer running than the lithium-ion batteries that are currently being used in electric vehicles. The new technology will allow the battery to make energy from the oxygen in the air. How’s that for clean energy?

Cleaning up the Environment

Their goal is to complete a fuel-cell vehicle system by the year 2020. The two also plan to develop lightweight technologies, like composites, to help make cars more energy efficient. Composites offer significant weight savings and may transform fuel economy.

By teaming together with similar vision, Toyota and BMW have the opportunity to combine resources in an effort to make a high quality and low cost genius product.

Will Other Manufacturers Follow Suit?

In order to stay competitive, they may just have to. French automaker PSA, owner of both Peugeot and Citroen, has already announced their plans to unveil a compressed air car.

Shhhh… Rumor on the auto street is that GM has paired with PSA to advance auto technology in the green car arena for American made cars.

Driving Down Cost

When you purchase your next new Hybrid technology vehicle it will be shipped to the dealer. Numerous factors come into play when pricing transport services. New advances in batteries and a push to make new cars leaner and lighter weight will likely impact the cost to ship vehicles.
