The question is, why can't there be a market for non-gasoline powered vehicles? Of course some electric cars are already sold by known car manufacturers but why isn't there a market yet for non-traditional vehicles? Many people who owned gasoline or diesel fueled vehicles keep berating the gas companies everytime there's an oil price hike yet they won't consider buying alternative-powered vehicles.

Well I guess for electric cars I have seen here there are businesses that applies this technology. One is the Lopez convention center in Antipolo, they have these electric cars that would transport their guests from one building to another building using electric cars for free. One thing many are not able to market this technology is the availability of charging centers around the country. Unlike Gasoline shops that are just as numerous nowadays. They say that electric cars are good enough if you travel around the metropolis but for long distance travels gasoline cars are still the best mode.

First of all the success of any product in market is dependaent on its cost effectiveness and flexibility. Even the electric cars being prodouced by big companies are not offering very long drives. Who would want to stop in the middle of the road because there is no place to recharge the battery, when petrol pumps can be found almost every minute of travelling. No one wants to risk that. As for other technologies, I am aware of only one type, that runs on solar energy. I learned from a friend that energy retention is one problem that needs to be solved before they hit the roads
