I keep on thinking this question whether we are ready for Hybrid Car in Malaysia? I don’t see much acceptance on Hybrid here, why? Are the consumer worried about the question below

1) Does all the workshop know how to repair hybrid car?

2) How much does the battery cost to replace?

3) Is the maintenance high?

These is what i can think off, I’m thinking what car to get next? Hybrid or non-hybrid. For time being there is not much choices for Hybrid, only Honda and Toyota having Hybrid. Hybrid also have many variant, for Toyota Prius is the 3rd Generation Hybrid is a Series-Hybrid, it run on electric during startup and even when cruising but Honda Civic is Mild Parallel Hybrid where it run on electric when acceleration pedal are release and almost going to halt state.

Since we only have 2 choices the price is still consider high compare to others country, how soon will our car maker come out with Hybrid car? I really hope to get an Hybrid car but can’t afford at the moment, hope that more car maker bringing in more choices for us.

For those who not sure what is Hybrid car all about, you can check it out here.

Today I received the Earth Hour T-shirt that I order from via postage and I plan to wear it on a wedding dinner this Saturday night.Do you think the restaurant will follow the event by turning off the light during the dinner with just candle light and that would be awesome.I’m really can’t wait till that day to see how is it like whole city or even country without lights.

So what your plan for this big event?

You might not need to join the crowd but just stay out in the car porch and enjoy the night view, just feel like you’re on a beach…minus the wave sound. I hope most of the Malaysian are able to support for this event by just turning off the lights for 1 hour to save our mother nature although some might think what we can save by just turning off the light for an hour, right?

This is not just for 1 home or country but is worldwide and it won’t end here as this is also to educate people on saving planet by recycling, reduce pollution, save tree and energy.

Hope together we can save the planet to have a greener planet.

Toyota Winglet in action

Friday 1 August 2008 – This is a cool stuff and very useful in shopping center, airport and warehouse as this can really save your tired leg for the day. Con about it is people will getting lazier as you no need to walk much and it need to consume electricity.

Prepare to step aside Segway, you had your chance to revolutionize personal transportation. Introducing the Toyota Winglet. Still under development, Winglet’s body has a 10.4 x 18-inch footprint and stands 1.5-, 2.2-, or 3.7-feet tall (depending upon the S, M, or L model chosen) and features an electric motor capable of a max 6km/h cruising speed for up to 10km a jaunt (only 5km for the S model). Like the Segway, the user controls the Winglet by shifting his weight to move the transporter forward and back or to make tight turns. Winglet will begin consumer testing at the Central Japan International Airport near Nagoya and Laguna Gamagori resort this Autumn with further testing in more crowded environments planned for 2009. It’s planned to hit a production stride in 2010.

China automaker going Hybrid

Wow this is really interesting that China car manufacturer is going for Hybrid technology as they know the problem with Global Warming. Our local car manufacturer seem does not really car about it and local authorities should start think about it now since it getting worse if we all still carrying the attitude of  “don’t care”.

Although it was not in the market yet but they have this intention and if I not mistaken few years back on our local Autoshow I saw a prototype of Perodua Kenari equip with Hybridengines but dunno where does this prototype goes. I do know that current Hybrid car is very expensive but all the car maker bring into malaysia it might cut down the price or maybe they are waiting for open market. When will this going to be happen open market?

Frankly speaking I does not have confident on china made product but somehow they really improved on their technologies.

Onion Power

Have you ever wonder what can an onion do other then eat it? What a surprise to see an article from Green Daily that you can charge up your ipod using an onion. I’m not sure whether this is true or fake video but it look like real, if this really can work we really can alternative power source and we can have a greener world.

The whole thing only takes a couple minutes to set up (besides letting the onion soak) and you only need a USB cord, an onion, some Gatorade, and a screwdriver.
