Automakers today announced EcoDriving™ (http://www.EcoDrivingUSA.com), a comprehensive, nationwide effort to save consumers money at the gas pump, reduce fuel use and cut carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. The industry also applauded California and Colorado for being the first states to support this consumer awareness program. The Environmental Defense Fund also participated in the launch of the EcoDriving initiative.
"You can save money and save the environment by driving green," said Dave McCurdy, president and CEO of the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers. "Through EcoDriving, 10 top automakers and the states of California and Colorado have found we share an important commitment, and we commend Governor Schwarzenegger and Governor Ritter for their leadership in engaging consumers in green driving. Drivers don't have to wait to buy a new, fuel-efficient vehicle to start reducing fuel costs and CO2...though I do encourage everyone to buy one of our new fuel-efficient vehicles immediately."
