Read the text about green cars.
Can you imagine the day when you will no longer need to stop for fuel at petrol stations? Or how about flying to work in your own car? Do you think this is science fiction? Let’s see what Dr Stephen Green, director of Cars of the Future International, has to say.
What does your company do?
Well, our job is to design and test cars that won’t pollute the environment. Scientists from all over the world work for the company.
Why are your cars friendlier for the environment?
These cars don’t run on petrol. Instead, they use alternative sources of energy, such as solar power, electricity, natural gas or even water.
But will these cars really help to reduce air pollution?
Yes, I believe they will. There will be almost no car exhaust fumes, or there won’t be any fumes at all! People will also save a lot of money on petrol.
Will these cars be cheaper than the ones we have now?
They will, of course, be expensive in the beginning. However, we’re going to find large companies to produce them at a lower cost.
Are you working on any special type of car at the moment?
Right now, we’re testing a new solar car. We’re going to present our results at a conference in Tokyo next month.
Do you have any other plans for the future?
We are soon going to start work on a flying vehicle! Can you imagine that? No more traffic jams!
