ENGINES COMPARISON WITH ELECTRICAL VEHICLE’S SPECIFICATIONS * Power source * Recharge * Engine * Performance * Exterior and Body ADVNATAGES AND DISADVANTAGES CONCLUSION REFRENCES ABSTRACT In this modern era we want more comfortable life & to achieve this, there are many inventions and researches are going on in the field of engineering but as each action having there some opposite reaction that may be good or bad. Some achievements may lead to problems in future and one of these achievements is fossil fuel engines which were a good achievement for us before 30-40 years but now they are one of the sources of contributor of global worming and pollution with fossil fuel crises. To cope up with this problem we have to use such engines which emits less or zero COx & NOx particles, for that one of the solutions is hybrid electrical vehicle but again they emit some COx & NOx so this is not a complete solution for this problem. The best feasible solution is Zero Emission Vehicle i.e. Compressed Air Technology (CAT) which does not require any type of fossil fuel. The gasoline-powered engine requires 4 Rs/mile where as for air powered engines it is 75% less i.e. 1 Rs/mile with no emission COx & NOx pollutants. The cost the hybrid electric vehicle is approximately $50,999 which requires the charging period of 5 to 6 hours whereas the cost of air powered vehicle $14,000 i.e. less than half which requires only 3 to 4 minutes for recharging. INTRODUCTION We are confident that Compressed Air Technology (CAT) holds the key to the automobile's future. At the same time, though we are aware that no one type of vehicle can meet all society’s needs. That's why we are pushing ahead with research on a range of
