Motorparks shines the spotlight on alternative fuel vehicles

Nissan LEAF

Nissan LEAFWith their latest visual, well-known British car dealership Motorparks has taken an in-depth look at alternative fuel vehicles — a market segment that continues to grow in popularity.

Take a look at the full graphic below and you will learn:

• That the idea for electric vehicles, a market that currently includes stylish and practical models like the Nissan Leaf and the Renault ZOE, stemmed from an invention of a model car by Anyos Jedlik way back in 1828.

• That the idea for hydrogen vehicles came about even earlier — 1807 to be precise thanks to a creation by Francois Isaac de Rivaz.

• What you can expect to see when lifting the bonnet of an electric- or hydrogen-powered vehicle.

• The vital stats about vehicles powered by biodiesel, compressed natural gas and ethanol.

With more plug-in vehicles purchased in 2015 than for the preceding five years combined, according to figures reported on by the RAC, the alternative fuel vehicle market is certainly something to take note of today.

Learn how these types of cars have developed over the decades and what to expect in the months and years to come by viewing the Motorparks visual now…
