This paper deals with the deterioration of urban air quality due to pollution from automobiles. The paper highlights the magnitude of the problem and how it can be controlled at the manufacturing level, if proper action is initiated now. It is a techno-managerial issue, but managerial issues are getting little attention while the technology advances in the right direction (to some extent). This lack of emphasis on managerial issues has resulted in an unawareness of the dangers of cars polluting our environment. The breakthrough in technology is not being managed to achieve maximum impact for saving the Earth 's already fragile environment. Apart from this, there are also possibilities that exist outside the automobile industry; such as better traffic management systems to keep the traffic moving and avoiding congestion.
