THE MODERN CARS OF THE FUTURE
Today's cars are smaller, safer, cleaner, and more economical than their predecessors, but the car of the future will be far more pollution- free than those on the road today. Several new types of automobile engines have already been developed that run on alternative sources of power , such as electricity , compressed natural gas, methanol, steam, hydrogen, and propane. Electricity, however, is the only zero- emission option presently available.
Although electric vehicles will not be truly practical until a powerful, compact battery or other dependable source of current is available , transportation experts foresee a new assortment of electric vehicles entering every life: shorter-range commuter electric cars , three-wheeled neighborhood cars, electric delivery vans , bikes, and trolleys.

To encourage the use of electric vehicles, the most convenient parking in transportation centers might be reserved for electric cars.
Planers foresee electric shuttle buses, trains, buses, and neighborhood vehicles all meeting at transit centers that would have facilities for charging and renting. Commuters will be able to rent a variety of electric cars to suit their needs light trucks, one-person three wheelers, small cars, or electric/gasoline hybrid cars for longer trips , which will no doubt take place on automated freeways capable of handling five times the number of vehicles that can be carried by a freeway today .
