Unnamed sources close to the Kerry campaign have mentioned a proposed $10 billion agenda to push U.S. automakers to produce more fuel efficient vehicles, should K get into the Pale Mansion. The effort has a reported target of 27.5 mpg for cars and 21 mpg for SUVs. In somewhat related news, UK-born Ford Motor Co. President Nick Scheele sees the U.S. becoming more and more unlike everyone else in its motoring tendencies. "We've got two different global markets - the U.S. and the rest of the world…Even Canada and Mexico are becoming more like Europe in their choice of vehicles," Scheele said. Well perhaps Scheele should take a gander in his local mirror, as it's awfully interesting that companies like Ford and GM need to be "financially encouraged" to make more fuel efficient vehicles, whereas non-domestic manufacturers have agreed to the stricter regulations for free.
