April 22, 2011 - Earth Day - New Canaan, CT
As we celebrate Earth Day today, it is a fitting time to take a look at the innovations being made in terms of finding new, cleaner, more environmentally friendly methods of providing sustainable transportation now and into the future. General Motors, and particularly its Chevrolet division, has been proving to the public that it is serious about its role as a global leader in fuel efficiency and alternative propulsion systems. With market leading vehicles like the Chevy Volt, the world's first extended range electric vehicle, and the Cruze Eco, the most economical gas powered car sold in America at 42 mpg highway, Chevrolet has been leading the charge. But many consumers may be unaware of the depth and breath of GM's commitment to sustainable transportation.
