Super-green minivans are possible today
March 11th, 2007

According to the Mercury News, the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) has designed a super-green minivan. The Vanguard is a vehicle concept that could cut greenhouse gas emissions by 40 percent and exceed California’s 2016 global warming standards. This minivan, which only exists as a computer simulation, would use existing technologies and could run on a gasoline-ethanol blend. Such a vehicle would only “cost $300 more than one of today’s minivans, but it would save an owner $1,300 over the lifetime of the vehicle.” Of course, as UCS is not a car maker, it’s hard to know if such a concept will really be used by the automotive industry.
