Bubble Cars Have Hope for the Future

 Q:   Ask a Question about Bubble Cars Have Hope for the Future       
Bubble Cars Have Hope for the Future The Bubble Cars first began emerging in Europe after the Second World War, as the lack of materials and fuel prompted car manufacturers to think small. Talented engineers, many of whom had worked in the former military aircraft industry, were the ones who decided to make the family vehicle more compact. Thus, in the fifties and sixties the Bubble Cars became all the rage with their dome-like rounded shape, fuel efficiency, and manufacturing competence. However, they were soon outsmarted in the market by German engineering companies like the Messerschmitt. The phase of the popular Bubble Cars had served its purpose of providing an economical means of transportation during a time of economic disparity.

Once the economy began to pick up, so did standards of living, and the rebuilding of E urope's war-torn nations meant that production of raw materials began to rise again, and soon within a decade, consumers demanded for bigger cars, which reflected the growing wealth of its people. In this period, gas guzzlers were produced like the SUV, the Hummer, and many more. They were popular as the price of oil was set low as supply was abundant, and thus the popularity of the micro-car soon phased out.

Today, with a global economy fighting against rising oil prices, the micro-car is once again becoming popular on the roads of Europe. Car industries have begun to downsize, and soon a revolution in micro-cars will emerge for all to see again. More manufacturers are already developing smaller cars, such as the Aptera, the Tata Nano, and the exceptionally popular Smart Car, which in turn has also gained immense popularity in North America. Although North America has yet to catch onto the craze of mini-cars, it has already begun taking small steps towards understanding that small really is beautiful.

Living in a world that is ever concerned with the environment, and the effects humans have on it, the micro-car is beautifully intuitive. It allows the manufacturer to offer consumers less material, for their money, as well as allows the consumer to consume less oil. The micro-car provides another simple, basic, and attainable alternative to today's transportation and environmental problems.
