Sales and sales targets of alternative-fuel vehicles on the rise
There are currently 46 alternative-fuel cars and trucks available to Americans. A list can be found at www.DiscoverAlternatives.com, an off-shoot of the Alliance's main website. The list conveniently categorizes the vehicles by type: hybrids, diesels/biodiesels, E85-capable, electric, and natural gas.
For the perennial skeptics who are wondering why the 9 manufacturers (BMW Group, DaimlerChrysler, Ford Motor Company, General Motors, Mazda, Mitsubishi Motors, Porsche, Toyota and Volkswagen) are promoting their gas-saving vehicles through a large lobby group, a partial answer may be found in the "about" page on the Alliance's website. Among its listed goals is "[t]o promote market-based, cost-effective solutions in preference to mandates on public policy issues." Makes sense, so where's Honda?
