This project was an opportunity for me to let people know about the impact of a Diesel engine and a solution that would replace them which is beneficial to the environment. I learned a lot about my footprint especially after noticing that each day distance to school to and from my house is around 30 miles. Most of the cars we own are diesel powered and I thought of the emissions caused by a diesel car because of this. In my experience Tesla is the most successful electric car company when it comes to having a charging network which allows for consumers to go on long rides.
I started my research process by interviewing Mr.Marshal who is a Dealer/Assistant manager at BMW Kun Exclusive in Chennai. He told me a lot of useful things about sales and what most customers are looking for in a car. I also interviewed Mr.Ramani who is a owner of Akila Transport and owns more than 200 trucks. He helped me understand why trucks use Diesel engines and why they are required for a transportation company like his. I also learned a lot of information about Diesel engines and their impact on the environment during my research.
My infographic explains the impact of Diesel engines and solutions which are friendly to the environment and ways they are cost effective. To make an impact I have sent my infographic to the Ministry of Road Transport in India, Multiple Car Owner Clubs on Facebook , LOA Tamil Nadu (Lorry Owners Association) and Car Dealerships
