BMW Hybrid Car-German Engineering Brilliance and Elegance fitted with Revolutionary Hybrid Technology

Submitted by on 02/05/2009 – 17:133 Comments

BMW giant is jumping on the bandwagon of other auto builders that have a concern for the growing demand of green cars. They have announed that they intent to start selling hybrid autos soon. The popular hybrid car will emerge within the next 4 years from BMW, as they will be providing their own version on the car.

Since BMW is a leader in the market we can expect that their efforts in automotive hybrid engineering will set a standard for others follow.

BMW has stated that their first BMW hybrid car will be introduced the the BMW series 7 and will run on both gasoline and hydrogen. Different countries are already testing these cars for BMW. Engineers and researchers are testing and seeking feedback to refine their 1st hybrid auto release. BMW is seeking a car design that will be truly friendly to the environment as well as aesthetically pleasing to the eye.

Deviating from the usual fuel cells used by other hybrid car manufacturers, BMW decided on using hydrogen-fuel combined with an internal combustion engine. This led to more research and development needed because of the demand of the engine to keep the hydrogen in liquid form, and this poses as a problem in keeping them cold enough to do just that. The hydrogen will evaporate when the engine becomes hot requiring you to fill up more often. Keeping the hydrogen from evaporating while in route to the motor is another problem. However BMW has claimed that they have found a remedyn to this dilema.

Hydrogen is the remedy however it will take around 20 more years before a hydrogen only car can be produced. But they are positive that this is very achievable.

For the last 30 years BMW has claimed to be developing the technology that could lead to the very first true hybrid automobile. They already are able to retrieve hydrogen from sunlight and they also have a car that transmits steam at the tail pipe.

Hydrogen is being considered by BMW as the main power source to power their vehicles since it will provide a solution the the current emission problems that are polluting our environment. Hydrogen will not use up natural resources because it is recyclable also dangerous pollutants will not be transmitted into the atmosphere. This is BMW’s answer, hydrogen powered automobiles with hydrogen created from H2o as a result of energy from the sun. This technology advancement became evident in 2000 when the BMW 750hl auto was presented at the Expo 2000. Together with some of its partners, BMW may be behind in the mass production of Hybrid cars, but they are the forefront in Hybrid technology.

Soon enough, we will all be the beneficiaries of all of these developments and innovations. Then we will be able to save more money on fuel costs and at the same time help the enironment. Owning a Hybrid car doesn’t have to mean riding in cramped cars with low engine power. Do you want elegance and style while at the same time be a contributer to cleaner air, then you should think about the new BMW hyrid that will be unveiled in the near future.
