The French Association of Ecological Cars is born

The French Association of Ecological Cars (Association des Voitures Ecologiques, AVE) was born this week. What's this non-profit organization all about? Basically, it will focus its efforts on promoting benefits for drivers who try to drive green. For instance, one of its first efforts will be the creation of a "green disk" which will allow drivers with cleaner cars (defined by those running on LPG, CNG, hybrids, EVs or polluting less than 120g/km of CO2) to be exempt from parking fees. The AVE is also demanding zero interest loans when purchasing green cars and getting rid of an old bagnole (car).
The promoter of this association is conservative French congressman Claude Gatignol, who joined forces with former rally driver Bernard Darniche, a former ministry of Ecology (Serge Lepeltier), several congressmen and representatives from important companies such as La Poste (French Postal Service), Gaz de France, Electricité de France and auto makers such as Renault and Toyota.
