First Green Cars, Now Green Dealerships

first green cars now green dealerships

MSNBC reports there are “at least 16 green car dealerships in 10 states” where customers can cross-shop alt-fuel personal transport. The Green Car Company of Kirkland, Washington stocks PC-mobiles ranging from scooters to hybrids to biodiesel-powered trucks. Over at the Union of Concerned Scientists, senior analyst Jim Kliesch reckons green dealerships are the next big thing. For every car shopper that finds a vehicle at a green dealership “there are a hundred customers that settle at the regular dealerships, despite the fact that they want cleaner, more fuel-efficient vehicles.” Down at the Green Car Congress, Mike Millikin (and his bio-powered steam shovel) says mainstream car dealers won’t put their arms up and surrender. “As the mature automobile companies produce more hybrids, diesels and electric cars, these new vehicles will appear in the traditional dealerships and lure consumers back.” I’m sorry; who said they were missing?

    Aren't all dealerships green? Oh, wait, sorry, I'm thinking of the green money. John

    I’m sorry; who said they were missing? Somebody doesn't read Frank Williams' By the Numbers series.
