Today’s focus is on hybrid and electric vehicles. They continue to improve in performance and are positioning them daily as the protagonists of the future automotive industry. These are the latest tech features that will be here for the long-term.
It is common to think about Tesla, Elon Musk’s Californian company, when talking about this car type. It is no less. The Tesla Model 3 is the world’s top-selling car, even though there have been new competitors in the last few months. The data for electric cars sold in countries and months shows that the Tesla Model 3 has sold a total of 149,000 units. This is 3.92 times more than the Renault Zoe which sold 38,000 units.
Another important point is battery safety in these cars. These vehicles are subject to the same EuroNCAP safety checks as a combustion engine for your peace of mind. Although their batteries may overheat in extreme heat conditions or technical failure, they are able to pass numerous tests that prevent them from exploding or burning.
The first test is vibration. This certifies that the battery is operating regardless of terrain. The second is temperature. It is used to check whether the battery can withstand sudden changes in temperature while running. Thirdly, the battery is subjected to an impact to determine if the pile is subject to mechanical shock. Even if the battery has been rendered inoperable, this test ensures that the vehicle’s occupants are safe.
Hybrid cars are a part of the future, but there are some things you should know about them.
The plug-in and hybrid vehicle sales were very good in September. They registered 1,974 units in September, 265.5% higher than the previous year. Non-plug-in users accumulated an additional 45.3% of the registered units compared to 2019.
We can see that the Toyota Corolla is the top-selling model, closely followed by models from the Japanese brand.
Technology is improving by leaps, so we can now choose greener cars. Hopefully in a few years gasoline or diesel will be lighter on the roads.
Hello I’m Victor Anguiano.
Welcome to my technology website.
As a former CEO of a tec-based company that is based in my hometown I decided a little while ago to start this blog. For me it's an outlet and a chance for me to relax and engage with my hobby which is all about technology. In fact, anything that revolves around technology, gadgets and technological breakthroughs and developments.
