Shining a Light on Solar-Powered Cars

Solar panels are making their way onto cars! Take the Lightyear 0 by Lightyear, a Dutch company. This sun-powered car can drive up to 350 miles after soaking up the sun. It's pricey now, but remember how electric cars used to be expensive? Prices could drop!

Biodiesel and Biofuel: Nature-Powered Rides

Ever cooked with vegetable oil? It can power cars too! Biodiesel comes from plants and animal fats and is way cleaner than regular diesel.

Hydrogen Cars: The Quiet Achievers

Hydrogen, the most common element on Earth, might just fuel our cars next. Honda, Toyota, and Hyundai are already testing the waters. Toyota's Mirai, priced at around $67,000, shows the potential of hydrogen cars. Prices might drop as more people get interested.

The Future: Glittering Batteries and More

Ever heard of dilithium crystals or diamond batteries? They're like something from a sci-fi movie! Made from nuclear waste, they might just be our future batteries. But there's a lot of testing to do before they're road-ready.

Car Companies Going Green

Toyota is pushing hard, with 21% of their cars now being electric or hybrids. They're aiming for 40% by 2025!

 

And Ford? They're jazzing up their classics, like the Mustang and F-150, with electric power. And they're not alone. Companies like Honda and Hyundai are also betting big on investing in developing hydrogen cars.

The road to green cars is full of exciting turns. From electric to hydrogen to solar, there's a lot to watch out for. At Kunes Auto Group, we're here to guide you through all these changes.
