Will car driving be after the crude oil a luxus?

The renewable reach of different propulsion concepts gives the answer. Depending on propulsion concept a luxus or affordable for all the mankind.

  Planet surface / inhabitants

150 million km² mainland are just right now for 6 billion people. Let's take 7,5 billion people for the time when oil evident runs short. This means 20.000 m² or 2 ha for one human.

A general affordable solutions has to be realized on this 2ha. All what uses up more than 2 ha area is a luxury for a few people, a source of social tensions and wars.

  Cars with combustion engines become a luxury

Let's take a typical middle class car with 5 litre Diesel for 100km and 15.000km per year makes 750 litres. 7.500m² surface. Die I mention before, that this 2 ha are containing also deserts, steppes, tundras and mountains? Residentail areas, streets, agricultural areas have also to remain.

  Electric cars affordable for the whole mankind

Let's take 3 people and an one family house. All on 450 m² real estate, So each inhabitant has 150m² share. The house obviously a plus energy house. Who could afford in the time after the crude oil an other house? Even with 2 cars for the 3 inhabitants no problem with the fuel. The photovoltaic roof with low temperature heat production delivers 12.000 kWh per year. Warm water, heating and domestic electric power require 4.000 kWh per year

Even when the two electric cars use 4.500 kWh per year, the plus energy house can still deliver 3.500 kWh per year to energy intensive industries.

Traffic energy and environment
Increasing oil price and more and more consequences of the climate change will enforce an environment friendly mobility.

  Car - automotives news of 2005

How looks like the future of mobility? What engine and fuel concept will succeed? Can biomass replace crude oil? Where is an electric cars superior?

Fair reports 2005 around cars and camping
Overview about our fair reports from 2005 about cars and camping.

Renewable reach of cars
The renewable reach is given in km of road performance per square meter of harvest surface and year. In addition the type of the harvest surface and the way from the harvest up to the tire.

Gasoline more expensive than photovoltaic
The Peugeot 106 is a typicall small car. Most time used as a second car for the wife and mother for every day usage like shopping or bringing the children to school.

Short distances cheaper because of exepnsive oil
Looks for the first very contradictorily, that something becomes cheaper because of expensive oil. But a look on the propulsion concept clears up the paradox.

Cheap energy as a barrier against progress
Cheap energy Energie means cheap botch-up solutions instead of quality. Let's look on our cars and it's immediately clear what means cheap energy creates cheap botch up.

Air condition in critical reviewed
Extrem cold draft in a car creates for sensitive people health problems. A very good example how cheap energy creates again and again cheap botch up solutions.

Car industry: Miscount China
There are 2 different strategies for the business with China. 1.) Sell existing models to China. 2.) check new concepts for a reasonable mobility.

Dilemma car sales
The automobile industry at the border of growth. More sales increase the demand for crude oil and this leads in a growth to less sales.

Energy consumption for garbage separation Energy consumption for garbage separation
Some empty plastic boxes are brought less than 1 km to the next container. The fuel usage on this short distance against the use of the separated garbage.

With the car to seperate the garbage With the car to seperate the garbage
A warm summer evening, nevertheless 8,9 l/100km for the short distance. In winter could be the consumption 12l/100km
