Abstract

Driving a car is one of the most polluting things that humans do however, there are steps we can take to start eliminating this pollution. This documentary examines the economic and environmental impacts of hybrid and electric cars. It demonstrates how cars have evolved from initial high fuel usage and high emission output to the fuel efficient and little to no emission vehicles that exist today. Details are given as to how electric and hybrid cars operate and the advantages and disadvantages of each, as well as the affordability of these cars in comparison to traditional vehicles. This documentary sheds light on why electric and hybrid cars are promoted as a solution to many problems involving environmental pollution caused by conventional vehicles.
