[Korea.net News, Science / Tech, February 24 2008] Hybrid car to fill Seoul streets by 2015

What will happen when a car can go 20 kilometers on a liter of fuel? The innovation will save drivers half their costs in gasoline fuel purchases.

So-called hybrid cars are not only economical but also environmentally friendly. Such cars will be common on Korean roads by 2015. At the 2008 Detroit Motor Show in January, Korea’s Hyundai showcased its next generation of automobiles, including a hybrid car along with GM, Honda and BMW.

The world is facing rapid resource depletion and car manufacturers are trying every method possible to develop a next-generation engine that does not use gasoline. The most typical cars of the future are the hybrid car and the hydrogen-fueled car.
