Detroit's Going Green?

Detroit's Going Green?

Did you see today's New York Times? Bill Vlasic writes that "Ford is Betting the Future on Small, Efficient Cars." Apparently, Vlasic got a head's up before Ford makes an official announcement this Thursday. Could it be true? An American Company is taking a step toward practicing what the enviros preach. How about that? Up until now, some of the most fuel-efficient compact cars hitting today's copious best-buy-for-the-planet lists have been from Asian automakers,  like Toyota and Honda. Maybe soon we can buy local (American-made) and have our fuel-efficient cars too. See my previous post about car buying, and creating a U.S. green economy.
For more about green auto trends, see the related articles on the Times (you will find several at the end of Vlasic's current article), as well as many other publications. If you find something worth sharing, please post a comment on The Perch.
