Easy-to-understand overviews cover topics that have defined the ‘green’ car field over the past quarter-century.
Washington, DC (PRWEB) December 18, 2014
Green Car Journal, the highly-respected voice of the ‘green’ car field, has released a special edition that shares perspectives and features on the most important ‘green’ car topics covered over the past 25 years. This special issue, ‘25 Years of Green Cars,’ features the magazine’s first-ever artwork cover depicting the Tesla Model X, GM EV1, Audi A3 TDI, and Chevrolet Volt. Complimentary access to the print magazine’s digital edition is sponsored by the Auto Alliance and available worldwide on ISSUU.com.
“Over the past 25 years, Green Car Journal’s mission has been to share the meaningful activities taking place in creating a new generation of more efficient and environmentally positive vehicles,” said Ron Cogan, editor and publisher of the Green Car Journal and CarsOfChange.com. “As lifelong auto enthusiasts, our editors understand the importance of harmonizing the automobile with environmental imperatives, ensuring that future generations can experience the joy of driving and freedom of personal mobility we’ve all enjoyed for years. Green Car Journal celebrates the wide array of ‘green’ cars that assure this goal.”
The editors at Green Car Journal are uniquely qualified to provide this insightful 25 year perspective. Since the early 1990s, the magazine has focused exclusively on the intersection of automobiles, energy, and the environment. Editors test drove the first modern-day electric cars, hybrids, natural gas vehicles, and hydrogen fuel cell prototypes on highways and test tracks in these early years, analyzing their capabilities and potential in the marketplace. These early activities lend an important backdrop that provides Green Car Journal editors a seasoned perspective on the importance of ‘greener’ vehicles and technologies today and the role they may play in shaping the future of personal transportation.
“Automakers have a great story to tell,” said Auto Alliance CEO Mitch Bainwol. “From record-setting highway safety statistics to energy-efficient models that use less fuel – and even no fuel at times – the auto industry is a fundamental part of life for millions of drivers and thousands of communities, and publications like the Green Car Journal are essential to getting that story out.”
The ‘25 Years of Green Cars’ special edition offers an expanded number of pages along with insights from industry and environmental leaders. This issue’s many high-profile features include thoughtful presentations on gasoline-electric hybrids, battery electric cars, plug-in hybrids, efficient gasoline and clean diesel models, and alternative fuels like natural gas, hydrogen, ethanol, biodiesel, propane autogas, and synthetic fuels. Easy-to-understand overviews focus on the major topics that have defined the ‘green’ car field over the past quarter-century.
