Volvo erupts in electrifying plan

Flow Free is pretty popular game on the mobile phone platforms; you connect the correct colored dots with the least amount of moves used, you win. Volvo seems to be doing exactly that in their plans to expand and change the automotive industry big time. Should they succeed, they’ll be hitting homeruns after homeruns.

By 2019, they’ll build cars which will have battery powered engines along with the diesel one. They’ll also make hybrid models along with conventional petrol ones and between 2019 and 2021, they plan to make 5 100% electric vehicles. The Volvo Chief executive has announced that traditional petrol vehicles would be coming to an end very soon. The first electrical models are going to be built in China, and if they prove to be successful, production would start in Europe and U.S.A. The Chinese automotive titan Geely has already plug-in hybrid models. Though not fully functional on electricity, the cars do go a fair few dozen miles, before switching to petrol. The pricing of these hybrid models is a tad bit more than the petrol one. About £13,250 more to be exact, leaving the end price of the cars at £61,650.

The move towards hybrid electric cars, made by Volvo is the first one in a grand scale kind of approach. The government and most people see this in a very positive light. About 40% of U.K’s air pollution comes from burning of petrol and carbon emissions from the cars. Cars running on electricity or at least, reducing the time it runs on petrol, decrease the carbon emission and air pollution immensely. On top of that, as these non-renewable resources become scarcer, new methods have to be developed in order to survive. So reducing the usage in this way, would save tons of non-renewable resources like diesel, coal, octane and other organic fuels. All this initiatives, fuel towards a healthier, smarter and more freely flowing society.

Spoilers

The very first thing that popped in to all of our head-at least once- as a child was : what the hell is the purpose of a spoiler in a car. I mean apart from making the car look tremendously cool- the other reasons were very much an enigma to us. By now I am pretty sure all of guys have a faint- if not clear idea- for the real purpose of a spoiler in a car. In this article, I will discuss in detail about the purpose of a spoiler.

Let us start with simple physics- we all know a moving body will encounter drag or a resistive force that will oppose its motion. This is not good news for fast cars as it will fail to reach its maximum speed. However- with the proper use of aerodynamics, this resistive or drag force can be greatly cut down. There are many ways in which this can be done, but now I will only talk about how a spoiler does its job.

The spoiler allows the air to flow smoothly and a laminar flow which in turns reduces drag force- thus allowing the car to enjoy maximum of its engine thrust.

Spoilers come in all shapes and sizes and in a wide range of colors. They sure are an eye candy-however- their job is much more important than just giving the car a good look. You must be wondering why is it called a spoiler and not something aerodynamic related or something related to drag. Well, the name origins from the fact that spoilers ‘spoil’ the natural flow of air and turns in to such a flow that is in favor of the car.

So, now you know that stylish plastic material attached to the back of sports car is way more than it meets to the eye.
