Buying a new car is such a personal decision. We could base our decisions on how well the car handles, if the seats are comfortable, and whether it has all the right amenities. When you add in the green factor, that decision just becomes more complicated. Luckily, Eric Novak of Enviro Dad, a journalist who covers the green car industry, sat down with Karen and me on our weekly Green Sisterhood Tuesday Talk (video) and gave us the skinny on the available green car options.
If you are in the “I am looking for a new car” mode or simply love hearing about green cars, this is the interview for you. Eric navigated us through several different driver scenarios:
- the long distance driver
- the “I just drive around town” driver
- the “I could use a small car in the city” driver
- the large family with a dog (or two) with lots of stuff to haul. (Or any of combination of those circumstances.)
Although picking a car is highly personal, he provided several different options in all of the above categories. In addition, Karen shared some of her experiences driving a Toyota Prius Plug-In while participating in the #Pluginforcharity #MPGChallenge. (Be sure to read her article about the ten things she learned.)
Plus, don’t miss our lightning round at the end of the interview where he listed his favorite cars. Seriously. This interview was jam packed full of information. I was car geeked out to the max.
So, in addition to listening to the interview, be sure to check out Eric’s Green Car Test Drive Page for the latest news on the green cars he test drives. Don’t you wish you could be Eric? Driving new cars as part of your work? Talk about loving what you do. (Do you think there is anyone out there that will let me play with plants all day and get paid? Anyone?)
