Welcome to the World of Tomorrow!
Engine technology is becoming more advanced – and more complicated – all the time. Unlike the old days when a lot of people treated car repair as a hobby, modern gas engines are a complete mystery to most of us. Plus, now there are hybrids and electrics on the market, which can make it challenging for consumers to sort through the differences and find the car that makes sense for them.
CAA commissioned two of Canada’s best-known automotive journalists, Gerry Malloy and Marc Lachapelle, to write an e-book to help consumers understand today’s engines. The aim is to provide simple but complete explanations that are easy to navigate and useful to consumers.
Electric cars are finally becoming a viable alternative to vehicles that run on fossil fuels (i.e. almost all vehicles). Energy costs for a car that operates on electricity alone is estimated to be three to five times lower than a traditional one. There are other benefits as well: no oil changes, lower overall operating costs and significant benefits to the environment.
