Yesterday I was driving through Phoenix, on my way downtown, I saw this:
It’s called a ZAP car, ZAP stands for Zero Air Pollution. The “car” has three wheels: one in the front two in the back and runs purely on electricity. Though going only up to 40 mph. It made me think to myself, is this the next generation of cars, hmm probably not, but as these types of cars become more “attractive” they will in fact become a popular move for driving through city streets. It only goes for a whopping 10 grand. The excuse on affordability is not likely.
But as a current car shopper myself, I have been looking into the hybrid vehicle, maybe even the “me too” honda civic hybrid, that looks a bit more on the attractive side for me and still drives the traditional mph.
Is it our duty to make sure we are contributing in making our air a bit safer? Sometimes I think so, sometimes not….today I do.
