Green Car Battle Lines Drawn at Detroit Auto Show
DETROIT, Michigan (AFP) — The Detroit Motor Show -- which opened for previews this week -- has put a spotlight on the looming battle for supremacy in the fast-growing market for green cars, especially between US and Asian auto makers.
With a rise in worldwide concern over global warming and soaring oil prices, carmakers from every country have accelerated their investments into producing cars with improved fuel efficiency and reduced harmful emissions.
The whole range of new green car technologies is on show at the annual Detroit exposition, the world's biggest auto show: standard hybrids, plug-in hybrids, electric motors, fuel cell vehicles, and flex-fuel engines that will burn biofuels like ethanol and even fuel made from urban waste.
