A Brief Blog Profile: Green Car Reports
by Thomas Hynes
Green Car Reports signifies the shift taking place in the United Sates consumer automotive market. People are getting greener. The environment, and the impact we have on it, is a growing concern. But, more than anything, fuel economy and rising gas prices are informing the way we purchase vehicles. It used to be that hybrid or electric cars were for fringe activists or hippies looking to make a statement about consumption. Today, it is becoming closer to the norm. Today, it is viewed as just plain smart.
This site may not have been as active five or ten years ago. If you wanted a hybrid car then, you'd have to choose which color Prius you wanted. By that I mean, there weren't always as many options as there are today. But, things have changed. More and more manufacturers are getting in on the green game. And that's where Green Car Reports comes in handy. The site is interested in reporting on those "green" cars will help the Earth, as well as those that won't.
For instance, this post says which hybrid cars to steer clear of. But, the site also covers larger news stories. Take for example, this report on the electric car market in China. There's even this post on five small cars that should be getting better gas mileage. It's true that things are getting better with regard to automotive fuel efficiency. But, there's still more work to be done. And, like any good car, this blog is looking forward.
