US Government Automotive Policy, Autonomous Cars, Cadillac CT6
Episode #419 of the Autoblog Podcast is here, and this week, Dan Roth talks with Juan Barnett (@dccargeek) and former Autoblog editor Sam Abuelsamid about the US government's automotive policies and the future of autonomous cars.
The name Sam Abuelsamid should be familiar to long-time Autoblog and AutoblogGreen readers, and it will hopefully soon reach a wider audience now that our former fellow scribe has written a book all about the Chevy Volt called "Recharging the Car: Chronicling the Development of the 2011 Chevrolet Volt."
AutoblogGreen's Sam Abuelsamid recently had a chance to drive one of Ford's new test fleet cars. And it wasn't just any new car. It was one of the new fuel cell powered Focuses (Foci?). The test drive was held as part of the opening of a new hydrogen filling station in Taylor, MI. Ford rolled out 6 of these sedans for attendees to try. As Sam explains, the ride was short, but the impression was positive.
