How to Be More Environmentally Friendly as a New Car Buyer

Over the years automobiles have gained a foul reputation for destroying the environment. As more and more automobiles ply the roads, it’s our moral responsibility to maintain pollution levels to a minimum.

To help you with this, we have compiled some environmentally conscious choices that you can adopt to reduce your carbon footprint as a new car owner.

Tip 1: Old Vehicle Scrapping

Old vehicles are some of the biggest contributors to increased tailpipe emissions. Key reasons include improper maintenance and the use of low-quality fuel.

To kerb this issue the government has come up with attractive schemes that offer incentives to customers who scrap their vehicles (Diesel- more than 10 years/ Petrol- more than 15 years). So, if you are planning to buy a new car, then scrapping an old car can save you a lot of money.

But if your vehicle is less than 10 years old, then a PUC test once a year is mandatory to evaluate the health and life of vehicles in the long run.

Tip 2: Switch to Alternative Fuel Sources

The best way to be eco-friendly is by adopting more fuel-efficient vehicles for our commutes. Two of the most popular eco-friendly and efficient fuel sources are CNG and electric. While there was concern about electric vehicles offering limited range and CNGs offering no boot space, the new breed of vehicles launched in 2023 has changed this narrative.

Take for example the new MG Comet EV, measuring just under 3.0 metres, this new EV is the solution for all our urban mobility problems. It’s easy to park, there is zero tailpipe emission, and its 17.3 kWh battery offers a comfortable range of 230 km/ full charge. On the other hand, Tata Motors has trumped the boot space issue with its twin-cylinder CNG technology on the Altroz, making CNGs the best option over nasty polluting diesel engines.

Both these models stand as a testament to the fact that alternative fuel sources are the best choice for the future.

While the above-mentioned tips demand major changes to lifestyle, here are some other minor changes that one can do to be more environmentally conscious:

•  Turn off the engine at a long red light
•  Most cars in 2023 (BS6 Phase II) are E20 fuel complaint making them efficient and eco-friendly when compared to regular ICE models
•  Reduce the frequency of car wash and switch to eco-friendly methods of waterless car wash to save millions of litres of water every year

So, this ‘Environmental Day’ take a pledge with us to protect mother nature by adopting more eco-friendly choices.
