When thinking of vehicle shutters I tend to think of the doors on commercial vehicles. This used to be true until recently when on commercial vehicles are where you mostly found them. I also felt vehicle shutters were shut an easy open and closed door for these commercial vehicles to use. This is partially true yet I never considered there was and economical or eco result from having these. When actually today some car makers and I’m sure more to follow, are using the vehicle shutters as we use blinds. The blinds keep the sun out and the shutters keep the wind out.
So by keeping the wind out, they are lowering the resistance which means the vehicle is more efficient. The neat thing is that all newer vehicles today are controlled by computers. This is great as it leaves out human guessing and lets the computer run the vehicle. When a vehicle has the shutters installed the computer will use several factors to determine whether the shutter should be opened, closed or possibly left somewhere in between. So just as with the blind when it is open the sun shines through. The same is true for the vehicle shutters when they are open the car can breathe better. The computer will feel on hot days or when the car is under stress they will open the shutters for better breathing. When the shutters are closed the vehicle having no resistance travels better. This also increases the fuel mileage.
Now a day’s car manufactures are doing everything they possibly can to increase gas mileage and have their vehicles be more efficient overall. The vehicle shutters is just one way of doing this. It’s a start and the makers will continue to look at ways to assist with the goals of the environment. We as well can do our part where we can. Make yourself aware of vehicle shutters and other things car makers are doing to better the world we live in. Keep yourself informed. If you are looking to purchase new vehicles ask which of them does have this technology. There are a few out there now yet more to come in the near future. It’s important that each and every one of us try to do what we can now for the future. We owe that to ourselves and for our children and grandchildren that will follow us.
