New Technology Surges Forward At Vancouver Auto Show

VANCOUVER: If driverless cars cruising streets safely is no longer a dream for car lovers, then puffing nothing into the atmosphere but a little bit of water exhaust is another dream of environmentalists just around the corner. Here at the 95th annual Vancouver International Auto Show, car lovers tend to drool over sleek designs, luxury and horsepower. But now, technology is becoming the show’s focal point, with more buyers interested in eco-friendly machines with enhanced safety and automated technology, Xinhua reported.

Beside a monster truck Bigfoot, people were surprised to know that this giant car is driven entirely by electricity. The staff of Bigfoot, Jim Kramer, told Xinhua on Thursday that this custom Bigfoot runs on a 30-car battery power plant that puts out 350 horsepower and roughly 800 pound-feet of torque. While its electric motor is quiet like a purring kitten, this monster truck does not lack for power or performance. “We always try to keep up with the innovations. And electric cars are coming of age. It’s getting better every day, and we felt we wanted to build an electric monster truck to show people that the qualities of electric can apply. You know, going green doesn’t have to be hard. It can be fun. We wanted to make it fun.”
