Alternative fuel vehicle

An alternative fuel vehicle is a vehicle that runs on a fuel other than traditional petroleum fuels (petrol or Diesel fuel); and also refers to any technology of powering an engine that does not involve petroleum solely (e.g., electric car, hybrid electric vehicles, solar powered).

Because of a combination of factors, such as environmental concerns, high oil prices, and the potential for peak oil, the development of cleaner alternative fuels and advanced power systems for vehicles has become a high priority for many governments and vehicle manufacturers around the world.
