Electric Vehicles

Thanks to a combination of technological advances,government incentives and demand from a growing segment of environmentally aware consumers, electrical vehicles(EVs) have moved into the main-stream. For 2011, limited-production makers like Tesla have been joined in the EV market by Ford, Chevrolet and Nissan, and every major automaker is close behind.

So what does the coming EV boom mean for drivers like you and me? Should we get in and buckle up?

If the thought of 21st century technology makes you want to run for the nearest rotary telephone, fear not: You won't need a space suit to drive and enjoy a modern EV. The only big change you'll experience is the realization that you haven't visited a gas station in weeks.

But EV's are different. For one thing, they operate almost silently-meaning added "noise" is often a safety necessity. On a full battery charge, you can commute to work, run lunchtime errands, hit the grocery store on the way home and still have juice to take the kids to the soccer game. At night, plug your EV into the garage wall socket and you'll be good to go the next morning.

Green Machines?

Pure EVs produce no emissions at the tailpipe. But that doesn't mean zero total emissions. Much depends on how the electricity is originally generated.

Today's cutting-edge EV technology is still expensive. Federal incentives can slash the cost of an EV; the Volt qualifies for a $7,500 price break.

Fuel efficiency may prove the biggest deciding factor. While Chevy's gas-powered Cruze delivers a very respectable EPA city/highway rating of 26/36 miles per gallon, the maker's electric Volt can easily deliver the equivalent of 93 mpg or more under electric power and 60 mpg under gas-electric power.

The next time gas approaches $5 a gallon, EVs could become the hottest game in town, without causing a spike in the planet's temperature. One thing is for sure: It won't be long before the kids are asking, "Gas station? What the heck is that?"

For your electric cars you still will need to have a GPS system in place. The easiest way to find the best Garmin GPS prices, is to visit the major online stores like Amazon or Ebay. You can save up to 30% by finding the Garmin Nuvi 3790T best price at Amazon.

More and more people choose to buy online, instead of buying from local stores. The reasons for that can be the followings:

1. Lower prices than at the local stores.

2. Larger selection on different GPS products

3. Being able to find the right product in a record time.

4. Low shipping fees, or free shipping in some cases.

5. You can look up on reviews about the same product, before buying it.
