History has taught us that the air we breathe has a huge impact on our health and wellbeing. Not long ago coal factories spewed toxic carbon dioxide emissions & were a major contributor to acid rain, as well as automobiles of an earlier era that contributed to the array of pollutants in our atmosphere.
Fast forward to the modern day era of technological breakthroughs in all industries, but specifically to the car industry, and we find major breakthroughs to ensure pollutants are at a minimum.
