People always have been under undue stress for the ever rising price of gasoline. For quite a long time, search for an alternative form of fuel to run automobiles has been on. If you are not aware of the latest automotive news, then this article is meant to congratulate you with the information of some recent development as a result of a great deal of research on part of the scientists.
“The best engineered”
Today it is a fact that you can use your tap water as an alternative to the petrol, diesel, or gasoline that you have so far been using as the fuel for your car. It certainly does not mean that you pour water instead of the oil in the gas tanks and start your car. Here, you have to remodel your car engine to suit the purpose and add a few other components along with water that will drive the car.
You need to add a small water tank or jar to your car if you need to run your car on
The history of Chevrolet is well documented. Before being acquired by General Motors (GM) in 1918, the vision of Chevrolet began in 1911 by Louis Chevrolet. The advancements of Chevrolet were apparent as they went head-to-head with Ford’s Model T with the invention of the Model D, a three-speed transmission, V8 engine powerhouse that was ahead of its class at the time.
Innovations soon became well-known models and personal favorites among not just American drivers, but those around the world as well. The Chevrolet tradition spread from generation to generation, resulting in a number of advancements to trucks, sports cars, and the classic sedans.
Here are just a few of the ways Chevy made its mark on the American landscape, a move that continues to this day.
1. There’s a First For Everything: Things we take for granted now and see as a requirement more than an option happens with cars. With Chevrolet, they are a company that grounded its namesake in firsts. Some of their early models adopted new ways
Marshall Engines is an aftermarket automobile engine remanufacturing company. Founded by Norris Marshall in 1982, the brand started commercially remanufacturing engines for cars and light trucks. Currently, it specializes in remanufacturing car, light truck, diesel, high performance, marine and fleet engine assemblies-with the addition of other aftermarket automotive parts.
“Automotive racing history”
The brand has nearly 200 production offices and numerous sales personnel under its wing. With branches covering the northern America (from Mexico to Canada), the brand’s production capacity has a capability of remanufacturing 100 light truck, marine, commercial and high performance car engines per day.
The brand lives up to founder Marshall Norris’ vision of giving “customers quality remanufactured engines at a fair price.” That is why Marshall Engines is known for being the first company to adapt QS-9000 quality standards created by Ford, Chrysler, and General Motors. The brand is also known for being a leader when it comes to introducing the world’s first dyno-tested and documented production of remanufactured engines.
BMW will tell you it isn’t so, but the new 3 Series is the start of a softening of Chris Bangle’s most angular design language. The car you see is not an evolution of an existing car but a ground up model, an energetic attempt to re-invent the most popular BMW model with unarguably good looks that match its top class driving dynamics.
The first thing you notice is that the car has dropped the current teardrop headlamps and done away with the aircraft carrier trunk lid. Next to go are the cut lines and the aggressive mix of concave and convex panels. It’s still recognizably a BMW though. The big news underneath is the new multitude independent suspension (borrowed from the 5 series) is designed to combine unrivalled ride comfort, with taut handling. On top of that you can expect Dynamic Drive (that’s adjustable anti-roll bars), Active Steering(TM), and a four wheel drive system as options. The fifth generation BMW 3 Series superstar shines brighter than the predecessor with a torque loving, direct injection, and environmentally conscious engine. (Don’t rule out a hybrid just yet – by 2009 BMW’s partnership with DaimlerChrysler
There are several innovative ways to upgrade your car’s performance in both the small and larger parts of your car. Car tuning can take on the different aspects of your car which can individually contribute to improving and upgrading your car, not to mention the safety and durability that it provides.
In the area of fine engine tuning, car engines can be retrofitted with a performance chip to give it a special boost. It can be adaptable to engines in their fuel injection or electronic control unit systems. This performance chip can easily contribute to better performance of the regular engines by as much as 10 percent, and to turbo engines by as much as 30 horsepower. In car tuning, a performance cam could also be installed adding another 12 horsepower to your engine boost. The fuel pressure regulator can be replaced with a power boost valve in the return fuel line to likewise increase the power of your car.
With improvements in the driving power, you can also introduce additional modifications to its stopping power through brake performance tuning. Actually, it is recommended that you equip your car with
Toyota has achieved a new position by being the world’s second largest car manufacturers after General Motors. Toyota Kirloskar Motors was established in 1997 as a joint venture between Kirloskar Group and Toyota Motor Corporation with a striking desire to carve its niche in the Indian car market.
Since then, Toyota has come a long way in the Indian market. Tasting all heights of success, Toyota cars have truly won the hearts of many car consumers. Toyota’s innovative ideas combined with its high-tech car manufacturing techniques have reaped a large market share across the world. Some special characteristics of the Toyota car include:
· Technological Innovation:
Innovation drives the approach to each vehicle manufactured, and is the first philosophy of Toyota. This provides a strong platform which makes Toyota the world leader in technological research and development for each car, van and 4WD. These cars may improve the present day status of the automotive industry and further brighten the industry in years ahead. Unconventional ideas, proven marketing strategies and car testing in real-life conditions – these are the reasons behind the huge success of the brand.
Bosch introduced its start/ stop technology back in 2007 and has since sold more than 1.5 million of the fuel-saving systems to car manufacturers across the world.
Most of the start-stop systems have been placed into vehicles that are equipped with manual transmissions and the Bosch Group recently began working with manufacturers such as Fiat, Porsche, Audi and Volkswagen.
The system has been particularly introduced in combination with existing engine technology and modified even further in the Volkswagen Passat, Porsche Panamera with dual-clutch transmission, Fiat 500 in combination with an automated manual transmission and in the sleek Audi A8 with torque converter clutch.
As Bosch points out, there are modifications for the automotive transmission application which include adjustments to the system’s electric starter motor and ECU modifications that help keep the individual car model fast and dynamic on the road.
Bosch claims that the start/stop system can reduce fuel consumption and emissions by up to 8% with an everyday driving usage and that the group spends more than 3.5 billion euros a year on research and development.

In today’s struggling economy and consolidating auto industry consumers, auto dealers and their automotive advertising agencies are demanding more for less. Consumers want to spend less time and money shopping for a vehicle and auto dealers have directed their automotive advertising agencies to deliver more reach, frequency, impressions — and of course vehicles — for less money with less effort since auto dealer’s staff’s have been reduced along with their advertising budgets.
The first wave of solutions that satisfied consumers and auto dealers alike came with the growth of technology driven marketing applications that replicated proven real world selling processes to accommodate established consumer preferences. The Internet provided the efficient media required to effectively deliver the marketing message to a qualified consumer in a cost effective and scalable manner and several automotive advertising vendors developed applications that made the message more relevant and transparent for the consumer.
A prime example of how the virtual world was built on the real world was in the explosive growth of video in online automotive advertising. A generation of consumers that grew up with television quickly gravitated to video on the World Wide Web.
There is no denying the fact that the most excellent car should also be the safest. That is why every car needs the best automotive electrical kit. An automotive electrical kit is a kit that can turn a standard automobile into an electric car or more characteristically turn it into a mixture car. The rationale behind these kinds of cars is that they are well-liked and well-accepted plus they are energy-efficient and they trim down greenhouse gasses and decrease gas expenditures.
Some group of people has a false impression with reference to the conversion kits. These people suppose that they will trim down your automotive presentation. In actual fact, they do not have an effect on your car routine for the reason that they only translate energy that would have been squandered into electricity. This is then stocked up for use soon after. Consequently, to all intents and purposes, these cars are reprocessing waste power and not using up energy out of the locomotive.
On the other hand, the most essential principle still exists. It is still very luxurious to change a gas motorized car into an electric car fusion,
Chrysler was founded by a man who had a reputation for saving foundering companies. Walter Chrysler rose from the ranks to become the president of Buick. He resigned from his position and was hired by Willy’s Overland Motor Company to supervise the rehabilitation of its ailing operations. He did a similar job by turning around the Maxwell-Chalmers Company. In 1925, he purchased Maxwell’s assets to form the firm that still bears his name – Chrysler Corporation. Aside from the Chrysler marque, the Plymouth and DeSoto marques were created to cater to the low priced and medium priced ends of the market, respectively. Chrysler acquired The Dodge Brothers Motor Company and by spinning off Imperial as a separate luxury brand in 1955, Chrysler has assembled a five-brand lineup to compete with General Motors, which has a similar offering.
What sets Chrysler Corporation apart from other car manufacturers is its emphasis on automotive engineering rather than styling. Walter Chrysler supported engineering research and continued funding the department even through the Depression era. Because of this, Chrysler cars have been at the forefront of automotive engineering since Chrysler Six, Chrysler’s first car introduced in 1924. The
We’ve all been told that electric cars are the way of the future, but are they really? Electric cars have been around as long as reciprocating engine cars have. The technology has been around for 100-years, so this is not a new alternative energy propulsion strategy for the automobile. One thing many people don’t understand is that if everyone was driving an electric car, we’d have a severe shortage of electricity. Interestingly enough, we can’t even build enough solar and wind turbine generation to handle the increase electricity that America needs as it grows already.
So let me ask everyone; where does that leave the country on the supposed mandate for alternative energy vehicles? There were two very interesting articles in the LA times the week following the 2012 LA auto show;
1.) “Electric Vehicle Battery Firm’s Sale Raises Concern – Some Worry That a 123 System’s US Funded Technology Will End up in Chinese Hands,” by Julie Wernau, published on 12-6-2012.
2.) “Electric-car Maker Fisker Combs the World More Investors – barred from drawing down a federal loan it needs funds to launch a second model,”
Germany is one of the best car manufacturer countries besides Japan, Italy, France, U.K and USA. There are a lot of common names such as Audi, Mercedes Benz, BMW, Volkswagen, Opel and Porsche. The history of German Automobiles began in 1870 when Karl Benz and his colleague Nikolaus Otto set to start to make some experiment for car engines and the design of the vehicle that being the origin of modern cars.
Nevertheless, the German automotive industry has experienced the decline period when the “Great Depression” occurred during the late 1920s and early 1930s. And that was the saddest day for the history of the automotive world in Germany. After the “Great Depression” ended, only about a dozen German car manufacturers that survived. Ford Cologne factory, Opel and Daimler Benz were the small group which survived, and also Horch, Dampf Kraft Wagen, Audi and Wanderer.
To raise the living standards of German citizens, the Nazi Party that was in charge at that time made policy on transport in order to the Nazi party gained a good reputation from the German citizens that called Motorisierung. This policy took over the Volkswagen car company to made cheap cars
More than 100 Americans die every day in automobile accidents. In fact, over the last century, more have perished due to car crashes in the United States than in all the wars the country has fought. Although this is a horrible statistic, the 2006 Traffic Safety Annual Assessment from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported the largest U.S. decline in terms of both number and percentage since 1992. This vigorous reduction is a goal that automotive engineers are striving to continue year after year.
Innovative automotive engineering can make cars safer, but at the same time, drivers must also strive for improvements. Many motorists at one time or another can recall either almost being killed on the road, stories of road-rage or helplessly observing an accident happen right in front of their very eyes. According to a 1999 Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) special, Escape! Because Accidents Happen – Car Crash, the roads are, indeed, a major threat. What’s more, an automotive magazine recently published statistics which reveal that more than 95% of these accidents involve some degree of (poor) driver behavior.
Indeed, some Americans may not rank amongst
For the past 100 years, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway has been the home for some of auto racing’s most thrilling moments. Although the news has centered on the oval action, the behind-the-scenes activity has generated its own kind of excitement. In their efforts to gain the best speed possible, the mechanics and engineers working on the race cars have created innovations that have transitioned from Pit Row onto the highway.
In fact, the first Indianapolis 500 Mile Race in 1911 witnessed the initiation of the rear view mirror. At the time, a driver had an accompanying mechanic in the car, who would check on other drivers trailing the car. Driver Ray Harroun had a different idea. Instead of this extra passenger, he decided he could see the drivers himself if a mirror was bolted onto the front of his car. The weight of an extra passenger would be eliminated and then decrease wind resistance and increase the possibilities of greater speed. The idea helped Harroun become the first Indy 500 winner. Eventually the rear view mirror also sparked auto manufacturers’ interest. Today, it is standard equipment on every car.
We live in the digital age where technology makes our lives easier each day. Advance medical equipments are created to help doctors treat patients, kitchen tools are innovated to make it easier for home makers, and cars are made smarter to make driving easier for humans.
Automotive electronics paved the way for helpful features like anti-lock braking systems (ABS) and automatic weather adjustments which makes driving safer and more comfortable.
Car manufacturers spend about two thousand dollars in automotive electronics for every car that comes out of the assembly line. These automotive electronics transform the car into a vehicle with better performing engine, more adaptive entertainment systems, and safety features that are far more superior than its predecessors.
Automotive Electronics of the Modern Car
o Control Area Network or CAN – There are several computers that run a modern car. The CAN is a network of computers that play vital roles in the different functions of the engine and its peripherals. The CAN serves as the bridge for the different computers so they can communicate with one another so everything are well coordinated. CAN
The Bavarian Motor Works company is headquartered in Munich, Germany and represents German engineering at its finest. BMW is the parent company of Rolls Royce and is the owner of the MINI brand. Since the company’s inception in 1916, the company has been a standard bearer for luxury and performance, a tradition that has carried through two world wars, the present and promises to carry on into the future.
British Motor Works began this storied history with the production of aircraft engines rather than car engines. The first noteworthy engine produced was the BMW IIIa inline-6 aviation engine. The success of this engine late in World War 1 along with significant advances made in a number of other prototype inline-6 engines is said to have influenced the design logo for BMW. The circular blue and white BMW logo is said portray the movement of an airplane propeller, to signify the white blades cutting through the blue sky. It was officially adopted by BMW in 1929. Whatever the significance on the logo, after World War 1, the Versailles Armistice Treaty was enacted and BMW was forced to cease production of aircraft motors. They turned
While the cars we drive to work and to the shops are themselves fine examples of automotive engineering, for the pinnacle of technical excellence you need to turn to racing and sports cars in their many forms. Check out five examples of the very best.
The Red Bull RB7 racing car. In the 2011 Formula One season, this was the dominant car, by far the best racing car on the circuit, winning both the individual driver’s title and also the constructor’s championship.
The RB7’s achievements were the result of continual development and innovation such as the introduction of its exhaust-blown diffuser, the addition of floor holes and special electronic engine maps that squeezed every ounce of power from the car’s 2.4 litre engine. Often these technical improvements had to be refined in the one to two week window between races.
The Bugatti Veyron Supersport. In just a few short years, with its stunning styling and awesome performance, this magnificent road car has become a legend. For those brave enough and with the space to do so, the Veyron can unleash a top speed of no less than
Does the thought of watching a great car race make your heart accelerate? Do you live to enjoy the thrill of speed? Maybe you just appreciate the design of great sports cars. Whatever the case may be, you can be sure that somewhere along the line, you have heard about or seen some great and historic Ford race cars!
Automotive racing has been a very popular sport ever since the first automobiles were designed over 100 years ago. Actually, it was because of car racing that many of today’s automakers exist. Automotive designers would try to create faster and more efficient vehicles by testing their ideas in races against other designers. Henry Ford entered one such event with his unique, early “Model T” design and won, investing the prize winnings into the company that would become the Ford Motor Company. From this humble beginning, many historic Ford race cars would be born.
Ford racing would become a company to contend with as they produced one winning design after another. Here are just some of the historic Ford race cars:

The increasing numbers of electronic systems in a car have ushered in a revolution which has transformed the car into a safe, luxurious and intelligent machine. One thing that has not changed however is the importance of human interaction with the car. This interaction defines the user experience and is a key marketing differentiation between different vehicles.
The systems measuring and tracking interactions of the user as well as providing feedback are collectively known as Automotive Human Machine Interface (HMI) systems. From the user’s perspective, this interaction maybe conscious – when he deliberately provides input to a system, or subconscious – when the system measures his intent without his knowledge.
Capacitive Sensing – Ushering in a revolution in Automotive HMI
Even with the inherent barriers in the adoption of new HMI technologies in the automotive environment, engineers are constantly trying to improve HMI systems to make them more intuitive, look cooler, and be more accurate. At the heart of this change are innovative human interaction sensing technologies which are enabling this evolution. One such technology is capacitive sensing which has revolutionized
Wheel has marked the era of innovation. With the furtherance of innovation cars & automobiles have come into existence. But at the same time men should not contaminate the environment because of their sheer innovation rather they should keep an attitude of gratitude towards the mother nature. There is no paradox held here that indiscriminate and prolonged innovation harm mother nature rather the mankind should find out the other way- eco-friendly automotives.
Truly that date marked the era of innovation when man first invented wheels. Gradually the day came when men were riding on automotives geared up by sophisticated engines and fuels. That was the turning point of man’s history and lives. Men kept on running with the rolling wheels and eventually the year 1769 became the date to remember which remind men that the inception of automotives was laid in this particular year. Men kept on taking the strides to meet the challenges heading and following them. The struggle was to make a better one which meet their needs and lifestyle. Different versions of automobiles came, made news and went away. That’s how technology manifest itself.
Men never became
